How I got pregnant at 13 - Ada Ameh

By Our Correspondent



Ada Ameh, the Nollywood actress, has revealed that she got pregnant at 13 after her “peers” introduced her to “early sex.”

 
The actress spoke about the ordeals of being a teenage mother when she appeared on the latest episode of #WithChude, a series by Chude Jideonwo.


The film star said after giving birth, she was thrown into the streets, where she began indulging in alcoholism and her “newly found freedom.”


“It wasn’t my parents. My peers influenced me. They introduced me to early sex. One thing led to another, and I got pregnant,” Ada Ameh said.

 
“I got pregnant in March, and I had my baby in December the same year. That means I got pregnant when I was 13+.


“The most beautiful part is that, on my 15th birthday, my baby was barely five months old. I was marched out of the Barracks.”


Ameh’s daughter, named Aladi Godgift, died in October 2020 after an unsuccessful surgery in Abuja.

 
Reflecting on the incident, the actress said allowing her daughter to leave for Abuja on the day of her death is a “guilt” she would live with for the rest of her life.


“One thing that has not been easy for me was the fact that I allowed my daughter to leave for Abuja. The day I made that mistake was the day I left her to leave the house. I’ve lived with that guilt all my life,” she added.
