Nigeria’s top celebrity couple Olubankole Wellington and Adesua Etomi Wellington are celebrating their son, Hazaiah Olusegun Wellington’s first birthday today.
The couple who got married in Cape Town, South Africa in 2017, took to social media to celebrate their son with a throwback video of the pregnancy process and personal messages to accompany it.
The singer turned actor and politician in a post on his Instagram page was thankful to God for giving him his wife and their son.
He considers himself the luckiest man in the world as their son is everything they prayed for and so much more.
He wrote: “I already knew I was the luckiest, most blessed man alive when God gave me Susu… then He gave us Zaiah. My goodness. This amazing young man is everything we prayed for and so much more. My heart is overwhelmed every single day with love, joy, and gratitude.
Happy 1st birthday to Hazaiah Olusegun “Champ” Wellington. Our perfect gift from God. As your name is, so shall your years be. Jehovah will always watch over you, and always give you the victory. You will be more knowledgeable than your teachers and more accomplished than your peers. You will achieve more than both of your parents combined, and fulfill your destiny in Jesus name. We separate you as a vessel for the Almighty; you will never lack any good thing.
We receive the grace, wisdom and resources to bring you up in the way of the Lord. We will live to see your children, and you will live to see your children’s children, in Jesus name. We will love you for-eternity.”
In the same vein, Adesua in her gratitude post on Instagram revealed that God saved her life after suffering a postpartum haemorrhage.
She wrote: “A year ago, God gave me the best gift ever. He placed the most precious jewel in my care.
A year ago, God saved my life after suffering a postpartum haemorrhage and I’m still here only because he had his way.
It’s been a year filled with lots of love, joy, peace and laughter.
Hazaiah, the one who yahweh sees
My joyful baby
My funny baby
After Jesus, You are the light of our lives
I am so grateful to God for you
Nations will rise and call you blessed
Nations will come to your light and Kings to the brightness of your rising
You will forever be the Head and not the tail
The Lord shield you, announce you, defend you and favour you
Anyone who blesses you is blessed
Anyone who curses you is cursed
I declare that you are a city set upon a hill, you glory will never be hidden
You are salt of the earth, you will never lose your flavour
You will always be a source of Joy in Jesus name. Amen
I love you more than I can possibly put into words.
My Sunshine. My baby. My darling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZAZA. You mean the world to us.”
