“A child is God’s reward – welcome, sweetie,” that was the message on pop diva, Omawumi Megbele’s Blackberry status this morning as she announced the safe delivery of her baby girl. The 28 year old singer and actor gave birth to her bundle of joy at a United States hospital – she has been in the US for a few months now.
Twitter and other social networks have come alive since the announcement, and there is palpable excitement as many congratulate the singer, who has been silent the development. This also confirms speculation since January that the singer, who appeared pregnant in a Genevieve magazine shoot and in her ‘If you ask me’ video, was expecting a baby.
YNaija exclusively spoke to her publicists, who said: “Omawumi hasn’t made any announcement yet – but she will speak to her fans. Still, we are all excited to see the outpouring of love towards her.”
Sources close to the story say she welcomed her first child around 2am local time and both mother and child are doing well.
