TESTIMONY TIME! Doctors Told Us We Would Never Have Kids - Actor, Deyemi Okanlawon Celebrates As His Son Turns 4


July. 10, 2020

Nollywood leading man, Deyemi Okanlawon is sharing quite the testimony today as his first child, Demide turns 4. 
The actor and his wife, Damilola who got married back in January 2013 had to wait for over three years before welcoming their son, Demide in July 2016. 
Deyemi has now come out to share how trying it was waiting all those years. 
Taking to Instagram, the actor explained how he and his wife were told by doctors that they would not be able to bear children. The doctors' message left his wife in a river of tears. According to the actor, after wiping her tears, he then reassured her of their faith in God and his promises. 
And then came Demide. 
Captioning the photo, he told his story, 
"After 3 yrs of trying and then finally being told we couldn’t conceive your mum came home crying. I held her close and let her cry then when she was done I tilted up her face, looked her straight in the eyes and told her “That’s not what God told me! We will have our own children!”."
"On this day, 10th July, 4 years ago I woke up to the cry of a child my heart swelled with love and pride... and I understood for the first time the hearts of both my heavenly and earthly fathers towards me! Happy 4th Birthday Demide... I’m super proud to call you son. Luv, DeyemiTheDaddy ♥️♥️♥️ p.s. @damilolaokanlawon see how I fulfilled my promise of giving you beautiful sons 😁"
The actor and his wife went on to have another son born in 2018. 
We are so happy for them, they are quite the inspiration! Happy Birthday Demide from all of us at Scooper. 
The superstar actor holds a Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Lagos.
