Speaking in an interview, the successful PR expert added that her son’s blindness has drawn her closer to God.The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, welcomed their first won on Nov 30th, 2011, in the US.

Mrs Asuquo said,

“The elephant in the room in my life in the past six years is pretty much… So, I got married, and we got pregnant. My pregnancy was fantastic, I didn’t even know I was pregnant, found out I was pregnant, still wasn’t sure I was pregnant because I didn’t have any symptoms.

Although the Pregnancy seemed smooth, she found out four months after her son was born that her son was blind.

“Everything was so smooth. And then fast forward to four months after my son was born and the doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?’

“And then suddenly, as a mother, your heart just starts palpitating.”

She said the doctor, who is a gynaecologist, was concerned and sent her off to a paediatrician. After a series of tests in Nigeria and abroad, it was confirmed that her son, David Asuquo cannot see with his physical eyes.

She said the experience made her question her spiritual strength. However, in spite of all that has happened, she said she believes she is making progress which is why she can finally share her story in the open.

David Asuquo aged 7, is an excellent pianist just like his famous father Cobhams Asuquo, who was also born blind.
