Adichie and her husband Ivara Esege, MD

As a literary blog dedicated to the African literary scene, we have written a lot of posts about Adichie’s writing, her ideas, her politics, and even her fashion and style. So imagine how delighted we are to share with you the report we found on Bella Naija that Adichie is pregnant.

The rumor mill began after the Farafina Workshop [See photos HERE] where the Nigerian author was spotted with a baby bump.

Attendees report seeing the award winning novelist with tell-tale signs of pregnancy,” says Bella Naija.

But this photo of Adichie talking to reporters [see below] during the Farafina Trust Literary Evening says it all. Hard to miss the baby bump.

Such great news!

Somehow I am reminded of Adichie’s statement: “Birthing a child is an accomplishment. Birthing an idea is an accomplishment. Building something or creating something or raising a good human being or contributing to making the world better in some way is an accomplishment.”

She has birthed many a brilliant idea. We are delighted that she’s well underway to birthing a child.

Congrats to Adichie!

    This is good. May the child be greater than the mother.
