Former Rhythm City actress Amo Chidi, who became a mom slightly more than a year ago, has revealed what her bundle of joy’s first word was.

Like many couples with a baby, each parent wants their child to say their word of choice first. This was no different for Amo and her partner.

In a social-media post where the actress expressed gratitude to her child, Reitumetse, for making her a mom on Mother’s Day, she revealed her partner wanted their baby to learn the word “papa” while she wanted “mama” as her child’s first word.

It seems her prayers were answered because Reitumetse said “mama” first.
