Tonto Dikeh, Nollywood actress, and her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, are claiming to be fathers.
In posts on their respective Instagram pages to celebrate Father’s Day, the estranged couple spoke about their father-roles in the life of their son, Andre Omodayo Churchill.
“Dear Lord, one of the greatest gift you have given is the gift of my dear son. Thank you for his life, dear Lord, watch over him every day, may he be safe and free from harm, as he goes about each day,” Churchill wrote.
“Bless him through life’s trial. Help him choose right from wrong. An example being, for all to see, standing tall and proud and strong. I’m a proud father.”
Hours later, Dikeh wrote: “It’s Father’s Day and I wish me and every man trying his best to be a good father, a Happy Father’s Day. Being a father is a tough job, as a matter of fact, you need to be anointed to function in the role of a father.
“There are men who impregnated a woman and gave birth to a child but they are not fathers because they have not been able to provide for the mother and child. When you think of all the bills you have to pay to take care of your family you will realise that fatherhood is not for boys.”
The duo, who got married in 2015 parted ways in June 2017.
