Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe-Etim reveals she will never have a child again as she is without a womb.

Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim has revealed she will never be able to have a child again. This is because she is without a womb any longer.

She revealed this during a chat tagged ‘Conversation With Nse’. In her words:  
“I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so, I had to have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through.

And I’m literarily telling women and men, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world, for the universe.

“Tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand. It was reassuring there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality, my reality.

 “I didn’t think there was any point anymore because my society taught me that I have to be a mother to be appreciated and every time I went online, I would have one troll or two say ‘you never born? But I’m thankful that that didn’t break me. I’m thankful for Nollywood.”
