Easter Sunday 2019 was more than rice and chicken for high grossing Nigerian actor James Ikechukwu, popularly known as Jim Iyke, as he welcomed a baby boy. Jim Iyke, who is 42 years old now, ventured into Nollywood in 2001 and has so far, appeared in 150 films. He is currently not only among the highest paid actors in Nigeria, but he also has one of the most impressive net worth in the Nigerian entertainment industry—grossing up to $30,000.
Anyway, those achievements weren’t why he was blowing up the internet in excitement yesterday. The arrival of his second child was what got him posting erratically on his Instagram page. He wrote:
“I’m ultra-private with my family but this is the rarest of moments,
“Back to 2hours sleep nightly. Back to cat naps with my subconscious peaked for the slightest movement. Back to groggy mornings and big unknowing smiles.
“Welcome home king. I can’t find the right words now. Every being in me is pulsating with raw primordial energy.
“A lion begets a lion, welcome to my pride dear son.”
“I don’t know what I’m doing right to deserve it all. It takes a man to bring a child home, it takes a community to raise him,”
Here are some of the cute father-and-son photos of Jim Iyke’s new baby shared on Instagram
