Star actress and Glo Ambassador, Funke Akindele, has opened up on reports and rumours about her pregnancy.
“Funke is not pregnant yet. She has chosen to be silent on the true state of her condition because in Yoruba culture, it is more of a taboo for a married woman to publicly denounce or confirm if she’s pregnant or not.
“This is a private affair and that’s why she was so amused and even surprised about the story claiming that she lost her pregnancy,” a close family source said.
The source added that when the initial story with a picture of a supposed baby bump hit the internet and that Akindele was in her first trimester, she silently claimed it since that is her wish after a grand wedding in May.
When the 37-year old actress strolled into the premises of Eko Hotel And Suites, venue of The Headies, on 20 October, all eyes were on her.
Funke, who wore a black silk pair of trousers and high heeled shoes, was seen strolling around with her friends.
When inquired about her rumoured pregnancy, the actress’ mien tightened into a scowl. She gave a stern remark as she walked off muttering: “What do you want to hear? Thought you are a Yoruba man?”
