Nollywood movie star Yul Edochie has dedicated a special post to his daughter, Danielle, who clocked the age of 16 on Saturday, April 10.
The movie star in his special post recounted how things were not entirely in order for him when Danielle was welcomed to the world in 2005.
Edochie said he was so broke at the time that he couldn’t afford the hospital fee of N22k. The actor also added that it was the same year he became a part of the movie industry.
"I still remember that beautiful day in 2005 when you were born. How happy we were to have you. The nurses said you were the cutest baby ever born in that hospital. You never stopped smiling at everyone. That was also the year I joined Nollywood. I remember how broke I was then and couldn’t afford 22k for hospital bills."
The proud dad, however, added that Danielle’s birth brought nothing but blessings to his family. He went on to shower words of prayers on the birthday girl as he wished her a happy celebration.
