Acclaimed actor Pascal Tokodi and his media personality wife Grace Ekirapa are the newest parents in town.
The celebrated couple took to Instagram on Thursday, April 21, to announce the birth of their bouncing baby girl they identified using the acronym AJ.
Coincidentally, the couple welcomed their bundle of joy on Tokodi’s 29th birthday.
In a long long appreciation post, Ekirapa, who hosts the NTV’s gospel show Cross Over, showered her hubby with love saying the birth of their daughter was a perfect birthday gift for him.
“To the man whose absence I am allergic to and whose presence I am addicted to @pascaltokodi. I asked God for a gift for your birthday and He gave me something even money can’t buy.
Today you welcome your princess into the world because she is the gift God decided to give you for your birthday and I am honoured to have had the privilege of carrying her for us. Happy Birthday My Love and Happy Born day to Baby AJ. I love you two so much,” said Ekirapa.
In a subsequent post, the former Selina actor said he had played the role of a father in telenovelas but holding his own real baby felt very different and made him realise how blessed he was.
“Words can’t even describe how I’m feeling right now, I’ve acted as a father before in movies and Tv shows, but today hit different, today I held our baby girl in my arms and realized how blessed I am. I asked God for a life full of love and happiness and he sent me my family,” said Tokodi.
The vicenarian further said watching his beautiful wife become a mother was one of the greatest joy of his life.
“Honey. I love you from here to Loiyangalani to malakisi and back. To my little princess , I’m proud of many things in my life, but today, holding you in my arms, holding your tiny finger, being your father, Sharing a birthday with you…. will forever top the list, I will always be here for you , I will love you and protect you with everything I have, always and Forever ♥️ Happy birthday AJ,” he added.
