The Nollywood sensation posted an image of an infant hand holding an adult’s thumb on her Instagram page on some days ago.

After posting the picture, she captioned it: A gift from God And I will cherish you for life. Biggest miracle. A Boy skin-tone-2: 3/4/20.”

She has however been accused of stealing the picture she posted by a woman in the United States.

The photo which was shared on her Instagram page on Monday, April 6, 2020, by the actress following the arrival of her baby has been taken down.

The disgruntled mom identified as @the_arielb on Instagram said, “I guess we are now famous in another country.” She then went on to write, “I will not edit, delete, or censor my page because of the simple-mindedness of others.”

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.

Explaining that she posts her kids and life because she loves it and is proud of who they are, Ariel says having a baby is a private moment she decided to share. She opines that 2020 makes it look like having a baby is not personal but a screenshot crop and repost kind of comment.

The disparity in post times on Instagram shows that Ariel posted her photo on March 13 while Abubakar posted the same photo some weeks later, in April.

Screenshots of direct messages conversation between Ariel and the actress, shows Abubakar admitting that she only posted the photo to announce her child’s birth.

Apologising for the inconvenience, the Nollywood star said she will delete the photo while congratulating Ariel on the birth of her child but the photo is still stayed up on Halima’s Instagram page after she said she will delete it.

Halima first hinted about being pregnant back in November 2019 when she said she is expecting a “Lil Minnie” and can’t wait for motherhood.
