Celebrity photographer and singer, TY Bello who welcomed a set of twin boys in October 2014 after waiting for 9 years has replied the viral rumours that she did not carry the pregnancy herself but engaged the services of a surrogate.

The talented musician who is the cover star of the 12th anniversary issue of Genevieve Magazine, where she is seen holding her twin boys, Christian & Christopher, explained that it was so funny for people to say such as she even went for a photo shoot during her pregnancy which was done by Kelechi Amadi.

In her words, “Funny enough I had a shoot during my pregnancy and the makeup artist who did my makeup during my maternity shoot was in a room where this was being thrown around and she couldn't stop laughing as she spent enough time with me when I was pregnant. I was blessed to have Kelechi Amadi-Obi make the photographs and it was special as he had photographed our wedding as well. Its beautiful to have your bump photographed in appreciation but not necessarily as evidence of your being with a child. There are women who would become mothers via adoption or surrogacy. The difference is insignificant. We all carry our children”

Speaking on how she was able to bear the family pressure for nine years, the singer explained that sometimes it is better to turn a deaf ears over some issues so as not to allow them affect one's reasoning.

“Oh you can't even begin to imagine. Society and even your personal fears can pressure you before a desire manifests. In our society, as with most, once you hit a four year mark after your wedding, everyone around you starts to blare their alarm. Nine years?”

“Now that was deafening. Every time I prayed, I knew everything was going to be fine and my life was in the course set for me. The pressure gets more difficult when you are trying and it isn't happening. It was important I turn a deaf ear sometimes. It was important that I didn't feed my doubts. Someone once said to me after the babies came,You can't call your experience waiting, you were living your life to the full before their arrival. I explained that that was exactly my waiting experience,” she said.
