At last, beautiful Aisha Umma Wali, the younger wife of Mohammed Babangida, son of a former military President, Gen. Ibrahim Gbadamosi Babangida (rtd.), is now a proud mother, having been delivered of a baby boy penultimate week at a highbrow hospital in California in the U.S. The baby is named Al’Ameen.
She is said to be extremely happy for the grace to taste the nectar of motherhood, nine years after she got married to the scion of the Babangidas.
It was gathered that her being childless for many years had exposed her to the ridicule and sneer of some people. But she was consoled by the fact that her husband showed her true love and care, while she hoped for the proverbial fruit of the womb.
Their love story dates back to over 20 years ago when they met through one Fatima Najib, one of their mutual friends. It was gathered that polo-loving Mohammed had immediately expressed his love and desire to marry Umma, who was then a young undergraduate at the Bayero University, BUK, Kano.
Even when she travelled abroad for further studies, Babangida was reportedly still passionately in love with her so much so that he gave her a diamond ring, as a symbol of his commitment to her. But sadly, their parents were said to have kicked against the relationship.
Though he later married Rahama Indimi in 2004, Babangida still reportedly had feelings for Umma in his heart.
Luckily, the coast became clear, and the two love-birds stoked the ember of their affair, after his parents gave their blessings to the union. The marriage was held in 2008, amidst elaborate celebrations.
It will be recalled that his marriage to his first wife, Rahama, finally hit the rocks last year due to irreconcilable differences.
