Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry and his new wife Oluwabusayo have welcomed their first child together.
The Lagos socialite who tied the knot traditionally with his new heartthrob, Oluwabusola in September 2021 at a very colourful event is now a father of a baby girl.
Sharing the news on her Instagram, the excited father wrote, “Thank you Lord for the gift of marriage, I’m very happy it is a baby girl thank God.”
The news was welcomed with lots of congratulatory messages from fans of the hotelier.
Kemi Filani had earlier reported that shortly after his marriage to Oluwabusola, Asiwaju Gentry later took to his Instagram page where she showered praises on her.
“In every journey of a man’s life, having a good wife by his side is a great blessing from God. Thank you for standing with me again, for standing, supporting, tolerating, loving and above all being my prayer warrior and partner,” he wrote.
“My small but mighty in power wife. My close, calm and collected wife. My great planner and organiser. My ever jovial and light to my path wife. You make loving, marriage and life worthwhile for me to live in.”
It is not clear if Gentry has officially ended his previous marriage with Aigbe.
In June 2021, the movie star appealed to her estranged husband to sign their divorce papers.
“No. Please, everyone should appeal to him to sign the divorce papers. He has even refused to accept them. We are still married and not yet divorced. The divorce is not yet finalised. Maybe I should use this medium to appeal, you guys should help me beg him to let me go,” she told Punch.
The movie star and her estranged husband have at loggerheads since their split in 2017 till date.
