    Just had my first child and she’s a girl and i love her to bits. Don’t care if all my kids are girls cos i’ll love my kids unconditionally irrespective of gender. Honestly i don’t get the obsession for having male kids and that ‘I want somebody to carry my name’ rubbish cos when you’re dead, you’ll be so sound asleep that you won’t even know who’s carrying on your name or not. All kids rock

    I like this Odunayo chic. For me it doesn’t matter some first girls are blessings to their families some complete horrors equally some first boys are God sent some you would wish you had given them up for adoption at birth. It doesn’t matter the sex it is how you raise them, the character you instill in them and the environment around them that shapes them into blessings or horrors in the future

    I hope the men know that the gender of their children depends on the man ehn? and other calculations? And above all, God? Better take the one God gives you. Shikena.

    Gender for the first baby does not matter as long as I eventually get my son. I prefer all boys but God decides.

    Nigerians can neva stop gender discrimination esp as it cut across most tribes. 4 me I don’t give a damn about gender. Have a baby girl n my husband n inlaws adore her. Can’t wait 2 give her more sisters. Children are gift 4rm God n either sex, dey shud all be cherished!!!
