2018 has ended on a bountiful note for Funke Akindele as the actress is now a mother for the first time. The internet has been buzzing with the news since dawn, and the new bundle of joy adds to the union between Akindele and rapper JJCSkillz, who became an exclusive item in 2016. The Jenifa star has joined the likes of Emmy Nyra who gave birth to twins this year and is currently documenting her nascent experiences on motherhood via a miniseries, and media personality Toolz.
The last time Akindele made buzzy headlines was back in January, where it was reported that she would feature in the third Avengers film. Of course, we know it subsequently wasn’t true.
Akindele appears to have confirmed the news with a #ThankYouLord post on her Instagram page.
