Temmy who was jailed for multiple crimes in the United Arab Emirate, Dubai almost a year now is said to have been delivered of a bundle of joy, a baby girl, in Dubai prison if information at our disposal is anything to go by. The Yoruba actress who was arrested last year over drug trafficking has kept mum on the paternity of the baby.

Sources who know the high flying actress confirmed to us that shortly before her arrest in Dubai, she was seen around with a top baron in Dubai, and that it's likely that the top Naija in Dubai is responsible for the pregnancy which has produced a girl. Another source also told us that it's likely that Temmy got impregnated inside Dubai prison, the reason is because she was arrested last year July and from that period till about three weeks ago she put to bed, she was supposed to have been delivered of whatever pregnancy she's carrying by March/April.

Having a baby, traditionally, is a thing of joy but for the beautiful Nigerian actress it's a sad tale to have her first baby in a gas chamber and worst of it all, far from her fatherland, Nigeria. “Nigerians in Dubai have neglected Temmy like bad habit for fear of arrest. All her effort to reach her close pals in Dubai to come to her aid shortly after she was delivered of the baby proved abortive as friends and business associates have all avoided her like a plague.” A source from Dubai told

Though, Temmy initially bagged 21-year jail term, her condition as a pregnant woman then, was said to have made them reduced it to 10 years. It will be recall that when Temmy was arrested last year for drug, she was not lucky enough when the custodians of UAE law and constitution found her wanting aside the drub issue. Temmy, we learnt, had police cases of stealing and forgery inside Dubai major markets and had been warned severally never to return to that land of gold and opportunities again. But as fate has designed it for her, she was said to have used another forged names and documents to enter Dubai while she was trafficking drugs.

Left with no choice of curbing her excesses, the UAE authorities gave her two options. Firstly, to be amputated on her left arm and right leg or face 21 years imprisonment. She later fell for the latter and today she has become a mother inside the prison yard with no hope of getting amnesty.
