“I Almost Killed My Daughter”- Actress Ufuoma McDermott
Nollywood actress Ufuoma Mcdermott celebrated her daughter who recently turned two with sweet words.
According to the mom of two, she never knew she was pregnant and was taking malaria drugs that would have killed the little girl. She also wrote on how her princess survived jaundice and won three awards in one term. She wrote:
“Dear #Kesiena ?
I didn’t even know I was pregnant with you. Those malaria meds could have killed you, but God spared you for us. ? (Like #SnowWhite)
I cannot tell you how much easier it was to wait for you. Professor #Isio helped us count down the days. He made it seem like a couple of days wait.
When you were born, you weighed a little over 2kg. All I heard your daddy say was “Oh She’s a feisty one”. I see how much you stand your ground when you don’t get your “gigot” every morning. It’s not like we don’t want you taking yoghurt, but you have to learn that sometimes we must say no.
The jaundice came. But you had the upper hand. You attained milestones before we could digest the former. When we thought Isio was super at 10 months, you walked at 8. Talked and began to assist with my make up.
Started school and in less than a term, won 3 awards for the session. Chicken pox tried you, you smiled out of it. #Kesiena #Alize #McDermott @mcdermottkids My #Princess. My joy. My edible #MinnieMouse. My wholesome #Cuteness My #Happiness My #Assistant I cannot tell you how much you lit up our world.
I pray continuous favour and grace upon your life. You will grow to serve Jesus and humanity. You will grow to love and respect mankind.(Like #Cinderella) Wisdom and understanding beyond your years shall be your cloak. Health; wealth and unending peace shall be your best friends. Joy shall be your companion. (Like Flounder and Ariel)
Goodness and mercy shall be your personal clouds…(Just like #Olaf ‘s).”
