In a now-deleted post, the comedian wrote; “Mary and I are happy and overjoyed to welcome our three sons, Aaron, Alexander, and Andrew, into the Akpobome family.

“It’s been two months since they arrived, and as the days go by, we thank God Almighty for these three beautiful blessings.

“We also want to thank our sisters, brothers, friends, uncles, and aunties for all the support so far. We appreciate and thank you immensely for all your prayers, love, best wishes, and gifts.

“As we celebrate the essence of the resurrection power in this period of Easter, we join our faith with yours and pray that things of joy will never be far from you.

“God will make all that needs to arise in your favour in this holy period of reawakening. On behalf of the Akpobomes, again, thank you.”

There are speculation that it was an April Fool’s Day prank being that he deleted the post later and popular actor, Alexx Ekubo gave a hint in the comment section.

Alibaba and his wife tied the nuptial knot in 2006. Prior to the birth of the newborns, they had four children, three boys and one girl.
