Nollywood actress, Regina Chinedu Chukwu is celebrating the 17th birthday of her daughter who she said was forcefully taken from her years ago after her husband died.
The mother-of-two said that after her husband died, her in-laws told her she couldn’t return to the city with her children except she agreed to some conditions. She agreed immediately so as not to be separated from her son and daughter who were 4 months old and 3 years old respectively. However, to her surprise, her late husband’s sister took her 3-year-old daughter away from her the next day.
She cried, begged, and ran after the car but it didn’t get her her child back. She was allowed to keep her son because he was still breastfeeding at the time. Sadly, her daughter was forced to grow up away from her. Today, that girl is 17 years old and has been reunited with her mother.
A year ago, Regina also spoke of how she almost aborted her son after she found out she was pregnant with him while her husband was on his sick bed and they could barely feed. She said her husband advised her to get rid of the pregnancy but when she told him it was a boy, he allowed her to keep the baby (read here). Her husband died shortly after the boy was born.
