This controversial actress has been in the news a lot and all the time, for a different reason. On several occasions, she has been shown with a ‘baby bump’, but does she actually have any children? And who is she anyway? Why are people talking about her so much? Find out the answers to these questions below. We will tell you everything we know about Toyin Aimakhu.
Toyin Aimakhu biography
Olutoyin Aimakhu is a famous Nollywood actress, director, producer and filmmaker. She was born on September 5, 1984 in Auchi, Edo State, Nigeria. Her zodiac sign is Virgo.
She spent her early years in Ibadan, Oyo State. She has a diploma from Ibadan polytechnic, where she studied marketing. In addition, Toyin has a university degree in Arts from the Olabisi Onabanjo University.
In 2003, she made her debut on the big screen in Bukky Wright’s movie. Since then, the actress has starred in numerous Nollywood films, including Love Is In The Hair, Ebi Mi Ni, Okafor’s Law and many others. She has received one nomination in the Best Supporting actress category for her role in Ebi Mi Ni and one win for her lead role in Ayitale.
Many consider her to be a controversial actress and person in general. Most of all, Toyin’s choice of roles is questionable at best. Most of the scenes she starred in are raunchy, and a lot of viewers did not appreciate those. Nevertheless, those scenes gave her fame (or rather infamy) and popularity.
There was also a loud controversy when she claimed that she was ready to give her life for Goodluck Jonathan at the time of his re-election. Toyin Aimakhu later apologized to everyone who was upset by that statement and warned people to not spill their or anyone else’s blood for politics.
Toyin Aimakhu marriage
Back in 2012, she began dating her co-star Adeniyi Johnson. On New Year’s eve in 2012, Johnson asked Aimakhu to marry him, and she said yes. In July 2013, they got married.
But where is controversy in this, you might ask? Well, the marriage didn’t last long, and in 2015, the relationship started to fall apart. Allegedly, Niyi Johnson cheated on Toyin, and the couple separated. However, not long after, they got together again. Then Toyin accused Johnson of another case of infidelity, and they separated once more.
This on and off thing went on for a while, until Toyin finally took her things and left, changing her title from Mrs. to Miss and removing the Johnson part from her last name.
In 2016, shortly after her separation from her husband, Toyin jumped into another relationship. This time it was with Seun Egbegbe, who is the CEO of Ebony Films. It didn’t last long either, as first her fans, and then Toyin herself expressed negative opinions about this union. Toyin said that she regretted going into a new relationship so soon after her breakup with Johnson.
She recently changed her last name to Abraham. Most tabloids took it as a sign that she got married secretly once again. However, later the actress explained, that the name change had nothing to do with her marital status. It was caused by some family issues, as Aimakhu is the last name of one of her grandparents, and Abraham belongs to her father.
After several years of pressure from the family members, she finally changed her last name about a year ago. Her social media handles changed, and she no longer regards herself as Aimakhu. But because most of her fans know her as Toyin Aimakhu, they still call her by that name.
Now that you know everything about Toyin’s life, you might be wondering when does the Toyin Aimakhu baby come into the picture? Stay with us for just a little longer, and we will tell you all about it.

If you can’t wait to know whether Toyin Abraham has a baby or not, we will not keep you in suspense any longer. The short answer is no, Toyin has no children of her own.
The long answer is that several unflattering photos of Toyin during her relationship with Johnson sparked rumors that Toyin Aimakhu Johnson baby was on the way. For a few months, everyone was convinced Toyin was pregnant, even though there were no official announcements. After about half a year, Toyin appeared with a flat stomach, and it made people very confused.
Many people started searching for news on Toyin Aimakhu new baby, but ended up just where they started. There wasn’t any news on the birth or on the baby itself. There are three possible reasons why this happened.
✦ Toyin had a miscarriage and did not want to upset herself and those around her by letting this news into circulation.
✦ The actress actually gave birth to the baby and is now hiding said baby from the public eye.
✦ There was no baby to begin with, and the ‘baby bump’ she was pictured with was just several added kilograms of extra weight.
We cannot know for sure which of these reasons is the right one. The only one who knows is Toyin herself (and maybe someone close to her). Regardless, it is her life, and people should not speculate on it.
The actress often posts on her Instagram (@toyin_abraham) pictures of her friends and relatives’ children whom she counts as her own. It is obvious that she loves children very much. She proves it by frequently visiting children’s homes and posting adorable pics of her surrounded by kids, happy and content.
In several interviews, Toyin mentioned that she would actually love to get married again and have children of her own. But, she iterates, she does not want to jump into another relationship as quickly as she did before. Toyin wants it to be a serious and reciprocated feeling.
And there you have it, your questions have (hopefully) been answered. If God is willing, Toyin will get her chance at motherhood soon enough. Patience is the most important aspect in this endeavor. We wish her the best and hope that life will smile upon her.
