BBNaija star, Mike Edwards and wife, Perri, are proud parents to a bouncing baby boy and the reality star and athlete couldn't be any happier.
He recently took to social media to celebrate his wife, speaking on the issues of high mortality rate among black women.
According to him, black women are five times more likely to die during childbirth. Speaking on the need to protect black women, he hailed his wife for being amazing and said he was proud to be her husband and father to their child.
He wrote: "Black women are five times more likely to die in pregnancy and childbirth. In the words of John Boyega, 'We need to care of them. They are us. They are our future. We cannot demonize our own. We are the pillars of the family.' To my wife, @itspsd you’re nothing short of amazing, and I’m so proud to be your husband and twice as excited that you’re the mother to our baby boy."
