Actor John Dumelo and his wife, Gifty Mawunya Nkornu, have welcomed their first baby some five months after their wedding.
Mr. Dumelo announced the birth of his baby in an Instagram post on Tuesday describing himself as a ‘proud father’.
He said he is glad his baby has finally arrived as he looks just like himself and his wife.
“Jnr@johnd_jnr I’m glad you have finally arrived. It’s been months, weeks, days and hours of waiting…..You look just like we imagined. Infectious smile, bright eyes, curly hair and chocolate skin.”
The baby, who is believed to be named ‘John Dumelo Jnr’ has a new Instagram account created for him with the name ‘John Dumelo Jnr’.
The bio in the accounts reads “Official account of John Dumelo Jnr. Account is managed by Daddy and Mummy, Don’t worry, I will start managing it soon”
The new account for baby Dumelo has so far garnered over 3,700 followers.
Mr. Dumelo also said he has plans of reading the bible to his baby so he will understand ‘how mysterious God works.’
He playfully added in his Instagram post that he is still yet to learn how to change diapers after the birth of his new baby.

John Jnr @johnd_jnr I’m glad you have finally arrived. It’s been months, weeks, days and hours of waiting…..You look just like we imagined. Infectious smile, bright eyes, curly hair and chocolate skin. Before I get all emotional and write a whole book, lemme let you have these few words to guide you. You can do anything you want and be whoever you want to be just like how my dad allowed me to explore…. Never give up. Always aspire to be better and do better than before. Be a beacon of kindness and truth in this world. Don’t have hate in your heart or carry grudges. It is not worth the time and effort it takes when there are so many things in this world to enjoy and love. Do not let others influence who you choose to be, both as a person and in a career, because it is not their life to live, it is yours and it is the most beautiful thing. Think outside the box JJ. Be a risk taker just like I am and don’t be afraid to fail. Failure gives you experience. Use that experience to conquer the world. Let God be your best friend and let Him guide your steps. I will start reading the Bible to you soon and that’s when you will understand how mysterious God works. And one last thing….I really don’t know how to change diapers, so please don’t laugh when that’s happening. I want to be better than my father….and I want you to be greater than me. Love, John Setor Dumelo, your Dad.
