Chidiogo, daughter of the late Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Dora Akunyili's, has announced that she and her Canadian husband, Andrew Parr, are expecting the arrival of their first child in August.

In a message posted on her Instagram page on Tuesday, Chidiogo who tied the knot with Parr two years ago, also announced the launch of a biography of her late mother, titled – 'I Am Because We Are: An African Mother's Fight for the Soul of a Nation'.

The writer revealed that she cannot wait to have a feel of motherhood, including the launch of the book that took her about four years to complete.

"In the coming week(s), in the month of August, motherhood takes on a powerful meaning for me as I'll be birthing in more ways than one. For one, there is the birth of a child, for another, there is the birth of my mother's story. Each has been incubated inside of me, held in love and deep trust."

"Both have been a most divine journey of listening, of introspection, of showing up through fear, through tears, through the ebbs and flows, saying yes to it all.

"Next week, I get to share at least one of the births with you — that of the book — a four-year journey of listening to and penning Dora's Story in a book titled – 'I Am Because We Are: An African Mother's Fight for the Soul of a Nation'.

"I cannot wait to share in and with you all that is to come," Chidiogo told her
