According to The African Eye magazine, Jim Iyke and his 23 year old Lithuanian girlfriend Dana Kinduryte welcomed a bouncing baby boy, Harvis Chidubem Iyke, on September 1st at the Grady Hospital, Atlanta.
According to the African Eye report, Jim met Dana, a law graduate in London over a year ago but she didn’t even know that Jim was a famous Nollywood actor until three months after they started dating.
Jim later moved Dana into his apartment in Atlanta five months after the couple found out they were expecting a child, and there he cared for her. Jim was reportedly present and assisted in the delivery of his first son.

Jim is quoted as saying:
My son. After trying a few relationships in the industry at home, I didn’t want the circus and misconceptions that came from close scrutiny so I spared no expense and resources to protect this relationship and my baby. This time last year I was in depression over my mom’s death. This time around I’m in tears of joy
As you would expect, many of his family and friends are surprised by this news.
