Earlier today we discovered that Dija has put to bed, and now news is just reaching us that ultra-private, ultra-talented award winning writer Chimamanda Adichie is now a mother!
The award winning kept her delivery under wraps and only just announced in an interview yesterday that she is a now a mother.
Last year her pregnancy came into public attention when she was spotted with a baby bump at an event by Farafina Trust in Lagos.
She said to Financial Times:
This is the first time I’m saying it publicly. I have a little girl. I have some friends who probably don’t know I was pregnant or that I had a baby, I just feel like we live in an age when women are supposed to perform pregnancy. We don’t expect fathers to perform fatherhood. I went into hiding. I wanted it to be as personal as possible.
