On this episode of #WithChude, award-winning actress and entertainer Ada Umeh and host Chude Jideonwo share tissues discussing her life trials, early motherhood, and loss of her daughter.
The actor, who had gotten pregnant at the early age of 13, discussed her early journey into motherhood and how it propelled her into the world of acting. In her words: “My beautiful friends introduced me to early sex and I got pregnant at 13. It wasn’t funny. It’s something today that we can just sit and talk about to encourage people to learn from somebody else’s mistake. But it wasn’t easy. On my 15th birthday, five months after I had my daughter, my dad threw me out. I was lost. I started drinking, smoking, crying, till years later when the Domitilla script was handed to me.”
At age 47, the actor confessed that nothing, no grief, life trial or loss, has ever broken her like losing her daughter on the 20th of October, 2020 did.
