A friend shared a post (True or False) of 71 year old Diana Ross “pregnant” and it was said she was surrogate for her daughter, who could not carry to term. My first reaction was Awww… Really sweet and considerate of her! My friend said “Best surrogate ever!”
For us as Nigerians this is still a new concept, and to quite a few, a totally foreign one. Replies to the post were in the area of “So she is pregnant for her son-in-law?” “Abomination!” and “God forgive oyibo people!” Is it really a bad thing that a mom would want her daughter to experience the same joy she felt when she had her?
I believe this speaks to all of us as women, to understand the yearning of every woman to carry a baby in her arms by whichever legit means possible. It also points to the various means the field of medicine is discovering to make that desire a possibility.
Diana Ross has said this picture below, which is being tagged the Diana Ross Baby Bump and is the source of all the speculation, was nothing more than a bad day photo… It could be that or it could be a baby bump…What do you think?
