Just five months after walking down the aisle with his wife, Mawunya, Ghanaian actor John Dumelo is now a father.
The baby, a boy, is the first between him and his wife. Their wedding took place on May 12, 2018 in Ghana.
Taking to Instagram, Dumelo, wrote to his son:
“John Jnr @johnd_jnr I’m glad you have finally arrived. It’s been months, weeks, days and hours of waiting…..You look just like we imagined. Infectious smile, bright eyes, curly hair and chocolate skin.
Before I get all emotional and write a whole book, lemme let you have these few words to guide you.
You can do anything you want and be whoever you want to be just like how my dad allowed me to explore….
Never give up. Always aspire to be better and do better than before.
Be a beacon of kindness and truth in this world.
Don’t have hate in your heart or carry grudges. It is not worth the time and effort it takes when there are so many things in this world to enjoy and love.
Do not let others influence who you choose to be, both as a person and in a career, because it is not their life to live, it is yours and it is the most beautiful thing.
Think outside the box JJ. Be a risk taker just like I am and don’t be afraid to fail. Failure gives you experience. Use that experience to conquer the world.
Let God be your best friend and let Him guide your steps.
I will start reading the Bible to you soon and that’s when you will understand how mysterious God works.
And one last thing….I really don’t know how to change diapers, so please don’t laugh when that’s happening.
I want to be better than my father….and I want you to be greater than me.
Love, John Setor Dumelo, your Dad.”
