Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has been called out on social media by an American mum for allegedly stealing her baby photo and pretending to use it as hers.

The 34-year-old movie star recently welcomed a baby boy. She shared a photo of her son’s hand with the caption:

“A gift from God And I will cherish you for life 😩❤️❤️❤️Biggest miracle ❤️A Boy🙏🏻 3/4/20”


However, an American mother, simply known as Ariel with the Instagram handle, @the_arielb shared photos of her baby photos on Instagram which are similar to that of the photo Abubakar used in announcing the arrival of her baby.

Ariel went on to share screenshots of conversations between herself and Abubakar where she appealed to the actress to take down the photo of her baby from her Instagram page.


As at the time of publishing this article, the post has not been deleted from Abubakar’s page and she has not reacted to the accusation levelled against her.

Abubakar announced the arrival, of her baby on Monday, April 6, 2020.

It would be recalled that Abukakar announced in 2019 that she would soon be a mother.

She had shared a post via her Instagram page in November where she gave fans the hint about her pregnancy.
