We are still in the week of Mother’s Day and in celebration of today being Throwback Thursday, I also thought that it would be a good idea to do a little throwback in celebration of the joy, blessing, and sacrifice that is pregnancy. Women go through a lot during pregnancy, physically, emotionally, mentally, and so in honor of this week’s mother’s day celebration, we will be taking a look at 10 rare pictures of Nollywood stars during pregnancy. Are you ready to see these? Then let’s go!

3. Adunni Ade
No two pregnancies are the same and women who have had multiple children will tell you this. Actress Adunni Ade is a prime example of a woman who pregnancy affected very differently at both times. Adunni Ade posted two pictures, each one from her two pregnancies writing: “Oh my! The joy of motherhood! In the first picture I was well over 6 months pregnant with @dmanyoung while the other was with @aydenbyoung Ayden stretched the heck out of my body! ???????????? All I’ve experienced and encountered with them both was and still well worth it!”

Young and uncertain but not worried. Didn’t know what life was going to be like but was willing to go on the journey.
