Adesua and Bankole Wellington, Nigerian celebrity couple, have recounted the heartbreaking moments they lost their first pregnancy — a set of twins.

The couple brought the revelation to light during an episode of The Waterbrook series titled ‘Final Say Faith’.

The message was shared at The Waterbrook Church in Lagos, during this year’s Easter Sunday.

In the nearly 60-minute video, the lovebirds recounted their struggles trying to have a baby, how they opted for IVF, had a miscarriage, and the eventual arrival of Zaiah Wellington, their baby boy.

“We got pregnant with twins, and we had gone for the scan, we had seen the heartbeat. At this point, very few people knew when this happened, every report you have heard is a lie, cause nobody knew when it happened,” Adesua said.

“So, we saw the heartbeat, everything was okay, then during a routine check-up, we went back to the hospital to have a scan…. and I asked the doctor what is wrong, and she was like, Adesua, I’m looking for the heartbeat.

“And I said for two of them, and she said yes. And I’m actually not going to lie, I started laughing because it didn’t make any sense to me. I was just like what do you mean you can’t find the heartbeat of both?

“And she said yeah, and so I went home. Banky wasn’t home at the time. And I remembered being in our living room….I literarily collapsed on the floor and I wailed.

“I’m sharing this because so many women go through this, but nobody talks about it, because it is almost a thing of shame for whatever reason, and I don’t know why.”

On his part, Banky W gave a graphic description of the challenges that came and how the couple overcame them together.

“And Monday or Tuesday rolled around, and we went back for the scan. And not only did we not see heartbeats, the embryo were shrinking, so they were decaying and dying,” Banky W said, as the couple sobbed on stage.

“When we found out that we were losing them and they had to do an evacuation, it was an emotional time, and she cried…

“The day we cried together was the day of the evacuation (the removal of the dead embryo) and we went to the hospital and did the procedure. Adesua is one of the strongest people that I know, but I had never seen her so frail and in so much pain, emotional and physical.”

Adesua and Banky W welcomed the arrival of their first child together in February 2021.
