Shade Tinubu-Ojo, the Iyaloja of Lagos and first daughter of the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has welcomed her first baby, a boy, through surrogacy.
Surrogacy is a method or agreement whereby a woman agrees to carry a pregnancy for another person or persons, who will become the newborn child’s parent after birth.
There are two kinds:
Traditional surrogate. It’s a woman who gets artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm. She then carries the baby and delivers it for you and your partner to raise.
A traditional surrogate is the baby’s biological mother. That’s because it was her egg that was fertilized by the father’s sperm. Donor sperm can also be used.
Gestational surrogates. A technique called “in vitro fertilization” (IVF) now makes it possible to gather eggs from the mother, fertilize them with sperm from the father, and place the embryo into the uterus of a gestational surrogate.
The surrogate then carries the baby until birth. She doesn’t have any genetic ties to the child because it wasn’t her egg that was used.
Tinubu-Ojo family have been expecting a baby several years after marriage before the baby was born on 25 December, 2017 through surrogacy.
Tinubu-Ojo was cited without pregnancy at the commissioning of the Johnson, Jakande, Tinubu, JJT Park projects in the presence of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
Despite fact that the baby was born through surrogacy, there is joy in the Tinubu-Ojo’s family that at last the Iya-Oloja General is now a proud mother.
The naming ceremony of the baby has been fixed for Monday, January 1, 2018.
