There had been several reports on the matter flying on social media . According to the reports, the movie star and her hubby, Fidelis Anosike welcomed a set of twins far away in the United Kingdom. This is coming months after the actress had a star-studded wedding.

5. Iwobi nominated for Premier League Player of the Month

In the wake of his impressive displays for Everton, Nigeria international Alex Iwobi has been nominated for Player of the Month alongside Bournemouth’s Philip Billing, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, and Tottenham Hotspur’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Other nominees are Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

Iwobi has already made a huge impact on Frank Lampard’s Toffees – contributing three assists in his last three English top-flight outings. Should he claim the diadem, he will be the first African to win the prize since Liverpool’s Joel Matip in February 2022. Kelechi Iheanacho was the last Super Eagle to be named EPL’s Player of the Month – a feat he achieved in March 2021. Arsenal great Ian Wright had lauded Iwobi’s impact at Everton following his excellent recent form, suggesting he could easily fit into Mikel Arteta’s Gunners. He told Wrighty’s House Podcast as quoted by Football365: “I am so pleased with the way it is going for him. I remember Arsenal fans, it’s the same thing they did with [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, they ridiculed him.”
