❤ So Adorable! Nike Oshinowo Introduces Her Twins on Hello! Nigeria

Published

 on

Nike Oshinowo for Hello! Magazine - May 2014 - BellaNaija.com

Here they are!!

In October 2013 , BN was first to exclusively report that ex-Miss Nigeria Nike Oshinowo welcomed twins – a boy and a girl, via a gestational surrogate in the United States of America – read it here.

The 48 year old kept a low profile ever since the delivery. She is regarded as a model, fitness expert, socialite, business woman, ambassador and entrepreneur, but her new title which she absolutely loves, is mother.

In an exclusive heart warming interview with Hello! Nigeria, conducted by Latasha Ngwube,  she introduces her bundles of joy and speaks on details about their birth.

Read Excerpts from the interview;
On keeping them away from the spotlight;
“This is the only interview I’m going to give about it because my children didn’t choose to come into this world or choose to be famous that way. I’m the one who’s famous. My children are not famous. I’m hoping they’re going to be able to live very normal lives.”

On endometriosis
“I’m not supposed to be able to have children. I have endometriosis. I didn’t decide it was time, God decided it was time.”

On having children at 48
“I think one thing you should know with me is that I’ll tell you the truth. If you dare to ask a question, I will answer. The answer might freak you out, but I will answer you as honestly as I can. It can happen to anyone, I’m not special. I’m very close to my creator, and to be close to your creator, you don’t have to go to church or to any special pastor, you just form a one on one relationship with your God.

I was out of my marriage, and I was lying in bed, talking to my God “Okay, so, here I am, is this what you want for me? Please tell me the next step. What am I supposed to do now?” and I fell asleep. As I slept, I felt a tug on the bedding and I open my eyes…

I’m saying you have a choice to choose. I chose to have my children look like the rest of my family. I chose to have my children look like my cousins, the children of my sister, the children of my brother – all the same colour. I did what I needed to do to make that happen. My children bear Oshinowo. It’s a very good surname to have!”

On her ex husband
“The attraction to Dr. Tunde Soleye was his mind. He had and still has amazing mind. I can’t really explain it, but I’m not a highly sexual person and I’ve never been able to be. If you are not, you have to be able to be attracted by other things and he has a phenomenal mind.

Don’t forget I wasn’t 18 or 20 or even twenty-five at the time. I was forty! But I have to say I was very much in love. Was I…guided? More by my heart than my head. Isn’t that nice to be sometimes? Am I embarrassed by that? No. Do I regret it? I don’t. I’m very grateful to have experienced it. It doesn’t happen that often. Would I do it again? Probably not in such a hurry. It took 7 years for me to agree to date him. When I say I wouldn’t do it again in a hurry, I meant I wouldn’t rush into another marriage in a hurry because all the love in the world is still not enough to sustain a marriage. There are other key components.”

She also speaks on how she dealt with the pregnancy, the delivery process, their beautiful names, details about the paternity, and more about the future plans.

Inside the issue, you’ll also get to see more captivating photo shoots in her home and exclusive photos of her gorgeous twins.

You also get to read on Hollywood-Nigerian actor Hakeem Kae Kazim, Ene Maya Lawani talks business and love, designer Oscar de la Renta and exclusive photos from Florence Ita Giwa‘s birthday bash

    Her face looks weird. Why are her babies white? Why didn’t she adopt from Naija?

    • Thatgidigirl

      May 5, 2014 at 11:46 am

      She didn’t adopt silly! And how does her face look weird? the woman is 48 and can pass for 35 pls sit down!

      May 5, 2014 at 12:39 pm

      No be only 35, 18 nko… You can love her, but you can’t wish away that very obvious plastic surgery!

      If at all she adopted the children, what makes you think that a black most adopt black child or children?
      Let me see your own face!

      You are a very stupid, narrow minded and bitter person can’t you be happy for another person its obvious you are a low life and lack class who even gave you internet most of you just come on here and judge ppl cos nobody knows who you are. Your little brain obviously cannot comprehend such selflessness

    Beautiful. It seems the kids are a bit biracial or just fairskinned. Congrats miss oshinowo

    Didnt she deny it prior? I am happy for her. SURROGACY isnt a crime I dont think anyone ever condemned it. She sounds defensive.

    They are so adorable! I love that she’s so open about it unlike other women who pretend they were pregnant and even go around giving testimony . It’s not something one should hide, a child is always a gift from God.

    Her Joy is contagious! I wish her a beautiful journey on the path of motherhood!

    Congratulations! Beautiful children…..
    But I’m confused. I thought she had the kids through a surrogate, so what pregnancy and delivery was she dealing with? Also are all her siblings children mixed race, because these children look mixed race to me.
    Something about this picture screams “Mommy Dearest” to me, but The Lord works in mysterious ways and maybe these children will be the cure for a lifetime of acute narcissism.

      ‘..lifetime of acute narcissism’?. LMAO! DEAD!

    • baboushka

      May 5, 2014 at 1:58 pm

      I am assuming she probably meant that she was their for the surrogate mother during the pregnancy and delivery

    • StephBiefeld

      May 5, 2014 at 2:08 pm

      What she meant was :She was with the surrogate mother during the pregnancy and delivery of the baby. It’s pretty common for women to stay with the surrogate mother having a child for them.

      lol..biracial surrogacy..nice one

      Translation, it is her egg with with a sperm donor that is carried by another woman . Period.

    Just love this lady, you can be unmarried and still happy. But no, Nigerians treat marriage like it is an achievement. Oya voltrons, i am waiting.

    She’s a beautiful woman, but that makeup artiste no try. she practically drew a line with the contour brush.. no blending whatsoever.

  13. nene

    May 5, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    this nonsense woman. the kids are obviously mixed race, i doubt there are many black men donating sperms, and knowing nike oshinowo, she is fake and very insecure, so she probably also wants mixed race children. i pity those kids, anyway she’ll be old by the time they grow up.

    • Mckay

      May 5, 2014 at 3:04 pm

      Ahhh nene, After reading some of your comments in other posts i’m wondering if there’s something wrong today? For someone with enough sense and maturity, your reply today is not called for whatever and whoever she is. Do you know her well enough to call her fake and insecure? Would you like to be called that or worse by people who don’t know you nor understand your background?
      Nene, I will not let you try to sadden my Blessed day and being happy for someone who has lovely babies, mixed race, white or black!!!! The last I checked, It’s her choice!!!

      Well said Mckay. Some people just spew poison and bitterness out of their mouth. Extremely ugly ms or mrs Nene.

      OMG! Your comments on this site are always laced with bitterness and rancor. Ah ah! Kilode? Are you ever happy? Or is this how you carry on daily? I feel really bad for those who have to encounter this your special brand of acidity in real life. Na real wa!

      urrgh! this is so full of hate, nappy hair? nice soft hair? oh my word! i pray your offspring are not influenced by such narrow ideals of beauty

    • Realist

      August 5, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Being so judge mental eh? And what if she is old when they grow up? Is she asking you to care for them for her? May you suffer to have children till Ur early to mid forties (if you don’t already have any) then you’ll understand that most women do it not by choice.
      You are so so sick

    “I chose to have my children look like the rest of my family. I chose to have my children look like my cousins, the children of my sister, the children of my brother – all the same colour. I did what I needed to do to make that happen.”

    Ok this statement bothers me so much! Why would you want your children to look like other people’s children?All the same these cutie patooties are too adorable!!! Please do not make them do everything else their cousins do they already have their colour that is enough.

      Men, you said it, she sounds unintelligent, and indeed, those statements are bothersome.
      Insecurity…..at this rate, black colored folks will be eradicated from planet earth.

    So these kids grow up and then you tell them they have no father, because he is an anonymous donor…or thats not the case?well i hope not. Woman it is not right.you want to bring kids into the world and mess up their minds.

    • jojo

      May 5, 2014 at 2:44 pm

      I would rather have kids with an anonymous donor than with a deadbeat, abusive or absentee father.

      May 5, 2014 at 11:08 pm

      And I suppose it is better to have kids with the kind of man who wakes up one day and leaves or is an alcoholic or is abusive. “Behold your father, but fret not child. At least you have a father.” ABEGI

      Here they come. The “If Its Not Traditional It Must Be Wrong Brigade”. You know y’all never disappoint. Even you come late sef, I been dey expect you for beginning side. Na una dey follow perpetuate unhappiness and extreme pretense for this our society. But what does it matter to all y’all if someone else is unhappy…as long as y’all are forcing your antiquated ideologies down people’s throats, y’all are good. SMH!

    This narcissistic woman and her severely botoxed face thrives on unearned attention.
    She does not want to draw attention to her kids yet she did her cover shoot with them?
    I have genuine pity for these lovely kids.

    @Nene and @Truth it’s about time you shut the stinking gutters you call mouths.
    It’s her eggs, it’s her kids, does it matter if her sperm donor is from Birini Kebbi, or France. Learn to enjoy the “Results” which are these Beautiful Bundle of Blessings. So focused on the melanin and skin tone, that the stupid ones miss out on the REALITY and JOY of every blessing.

    WELCOME TO THE TWIN MOTHER’S CLUB, NIKE WHERE WE HAVE DOUBLE THE FUN:) All the people who have nothing nice to say, na wa for una o!!! No matter how you feel about somebody, there are some things that call for you to put that ish behind you and one of those things are babies! Even if you feel she is a narcissistic social climbing wench but you fit still congratulate the woman for what God has done in her life. She has received a gift that many cry at night for daily because they can’t be mothers naturally and they don’t have the money to pursue other avenues like she got to do with surrogacy. Ol boy, na wa o. Please be happy for somebody so that God can bless you and others will be happy for you as well. Wetin plastic surgery, botox or her old ass ex-husband have to do with these gorgeous babies?

    animals do u know what is call endometriosis.,so if u know u wont write nonese about Nike giving her egg to another woman to carry for her,this way is better than Adopoting a child.cos may later will tell u ,on to ur face that u are not thier mother and later look for their mother or father that give them out when they are born.
