One of the most beautiful and gorgeous actresses in Nigeria, Stephanie Okereke-Linus, has confirmed that she is presently expecting her first child.

In April 2012, Stephanie and Linus Idahosa threw a fairy tale wedding ceremony in France, which was the talk in Nigeria. Several guests flew from Nigeria to attend the glamorous occasion.

Stephanie confirmed her pregnancy to Encomium when contacted following rumour that she was already in the nine-month course.

"Yes my husband and I are expecting our first child and we are so, so happy, joyous, excited and you can add over the moon," she told Encomium.

The actress and her husband were among the 60 young achievers around the world invited to the Buckingham Palace for the inaugural Queen Young Leaders Awards.

The Queen’s Young Leader Award recognises and celebrates exceptional people aged 18-29 from across the Commonwealth, using their skills to transform lives.
