Beautiful Nike Oshinowo welcome twins?


If this is true, I think it is great news, everyone deserves to be happy!

If you dont know Nike, here is what I got from her wiki page: Nike Oshinowo (born Adenike Asabi Oshinowo, c. 1968) is a Nigerian businesswoman, socialite, entrepreneur and former pageant director.[3]

Oshinowo was raised in Ibadan and England, where she attended boarding school. Although she had intended to become an air hostess or a doctor, she studied Politics at the University of Essex. Shortly after obtaining her degree, Oshinowo, who was mentored by former Miss Nigeria Helen Prest-Davies, represented Rivers at the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant and became its first Yoruba winner (she was crowned in December 1990, but reigned in 1991).[4]

After her reign which saw her compete at Miss World, Oshinowo featured in a commercial for Venus cosmetics and hosted a fashion and beauty show on Nigerian television. Her business ventures included an African restaurant and Skin Deep, a health and beauty spa[5] which ran for seven years before it was sold after she decided to create her own range of beauty products for the Nigerian market.[6][7] On January 17, 2010, she released the workout video Nike Oshinowo: Fit, Forty and Fabulous - the first celebrity fitness DVD produced in the country - and is currently working on the beauty products which will include fragrance, skincare, and haircare.[8][3]

Now in her forties, Oshinowo, who is fluent in five languages including Japanese and French, is hailed as a style icon in her homeland. She married medical doctor Tunde Soleye in 2006,[9][10] but the couple have now separated.[11]In 2009, the couple was in the news following a lawsuit instituted by Soleye's ex-wife Funmilayo, who claimed that he had been unfaithful with Oshinowo during their marriage.[12]

In 2010, after a six-year attempt, Oshinowo finally bought the Miss Nigeria franchise from former organisers Daily Times, and became chief executive and creative director of the pageant.[3][13][14] As of 2012, she is no longer in charge of the pageant [15] [16]

The former beauty queen welcomed a set of twins - a boy and a girl, via surrogacy a few months ago in the US. Nike and the twins returned to Nigeria on Monday September 30th. The twins are Nike's biological children but was carried and birthed by another woman - The identity of the children's father is currently unknown but there are indications that Nike bought sperm from a sperm bank in the US. The 47 year old who has over the years battled endometriosis already has two adopted children.

Huge congratulations to her
