In an accompanying caption, the delighted mother thanked God for their new arrival.
“Lord, we are grateful; we approach Your throne with heartfelt songs of praise and thanksgiving.🕺💃,” she wrote.

Chinwo, however, did not reveal the name or gender of her child.

On June 23, 2022, Chinwo and Uzochikwa got engaged.

Since then, she has received a massive response from gospel music fans.
The vocalist has also won various honors for her work.
Uzochikwa, often known as Pastor Blessed, is the senior pastor of Water Brook Church.
He is well-known for his inspirational and spiritual words.
