A man has stated that celebrating 45 years is not something actress Nse Ikpe-Etim should be doing if she lacks certain things in her life.
The actress clocked 45-years old a few days ago and declared her new age with lovely photos on social media.
However, her post was found to be awkward by a man who feels she ought to have achieved certain things at her age.
According to him, she shouldn’t be celebrating her new age if she doesn’t have kids and a husband.
“Happy birthday. But the questions is at 45 are you married? If yes are you with your husand?..Is your marriage intact?..Finally did you have kids for your husband?..If all this qustions are fulfilled..meaning you are a strong woman who found grace in the sight of God…but if you miss any of this questions, meaning there are still issues ahead of you and the 45 is not worth celebrating.”, he wrote

Recently, Nse Ikpe-Etim revealed she can’t have kids again as she removed her womb in other to live her normal life again.
Nse revealed this during her recent event tagged “Conversation With Nse” in Lagos. She said she was diagnosed with Adenomyosis, about three years ago.
Adenomyosis is a genealogical medical condition whereby the inner lining of the uterus breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus.
In Nigeria, over 100 thousand cases of Adenomyosis are recorded per year.
Nse Ikpe-Etim said:
“I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so, I had to remove my womb to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through.
And I’m literarily telling women and men, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world, for the universe.
When I was first told by the doctor that I would have to remove my womb to live a normal life, tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand.
It was reassuring that there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality, my reality. The ordeal made me fall into depression.
I didn’t think there was any point anymore because my society taught me that I have to be a mother to be appreciated and every time I went online, I would have one troll or two say ‘you never born? But I’m thankful that that didn’t break me.”
