Stella Damasus Celebrates Lookalike Daughter Isabel On Her 23rd Birthday
Nollywood actress Stella Damasus wished her first daughter Isabel Aboderin a happy birthday she turns 23.
The 44-year-old described the US-based photographer as God’s gift to her and a blessing to the entire family in a sweet message posted to Instagram on Saturday.
“My first born, my princess, my baby, my sugar mummy, my joy, the life of the party. Isabel Ayomide Adaora Aboderin. You are God’s gift to me. You are a blessing to our entire family and community.
“A source of joy, hope and laughter. I am grateful that God gave me the rare privilege of being your mother. I love you so so much. I am proud of the woman you have become.
“I can’t believe you are 23 already. Hmmm! God is good. Happy birthday baby @izzybelleimages. I love you more than words can explain,” she wrote.
Stella Damasus shares Isabel and her sister Angelica with her late husband Jaiye Aboderin who died of a heart attack while playing basketball 2004.
In an interview with This Day Style published last month, the “Games Women Play” star explained that she is very protective of her family and deliberately kept her her daughters away from the spotlight until recently.
“From the time they were born, it was a conscious effort not to put them out there. They were always covered and hardly went anywhere. They either visited their friends or had them come over. There were no pictures because I wanted them to live a normal life.
“Their surname is still Aboderin. They have normal friends who treat them like normal people not because they are Stella Damasus’s daughters. I didn’t want that. I want them to read, study, work hard and earn a living, not because they are associated with me. I’m happy I did because they don’t even regard me as anything, just Mummy. They have always had social media but I didn’t want them out there until they were mature enough to handle the negative side of social media,” she told the paper.
