Yoruba star actress and Glo Ambassador, Funke Akindele, has opened up on reports and rumours about her pregnancy.
A close family source of the actress told Entertainment Café that Akindele was amused reading a story in the current edition of a Lagos-based soft sell magazine suggesting that she suffered a miscarriage and her movie career has nose-dived.
“Funke is not pregnant yet. She has chosen to be silent on the true state of her condition because in Yoruba culture, it is more of a taboo for a married woman to publicly denounce or confirm if she’s pregnant or not.
“This is a private affair and that’s why she was so amused and even surprised about the story claiming that she lost her pregnancy,” the source told Entertainment Café in a telephone chat.
The source added that when the initial story with a picture of a supposed baby bump hit the internet and that Akindele was in her first trimester, she silently claimed it since that is her wish after a grand wedding in May.
The rumour continued to fester in September after another soft sell magazinepublished pictures of Akindele at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards held in the United States.
When the 37-year old actress strolled into the premises of Eko Hotel And Suites, venue of The Headies, on 20 October, all eyes were on her.
Funke, who wore a black silk pair of trousers and high heeled shoes, was seen strolling around with her friends.
But when Entertainment Café walked up to her to inquire about her rumoured pregnancy, the actress’ mien tightened into a scowl.
But the persistence of our correspondent forced a stern remark as she walked off muttering: “What do you want to hear? Thought you are a Yoruba man?”

Its a lie! U were preggy b4. I saw u abt 2 months ago, and u really looked preggy. There is a sharp contrast betwn ur looks then and now. Just own-up and pray to God, its no man’s making. I wish u more & more goals scoring in ur next attempt. Pregnancy is God’s making not man, so i wnt diss u over it, rather i wish u luck.
