Jamil was born on 28 April 2016; He’s currently five years. However, in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu in late 2020, Tiwa revealed that she is open to having another child.
Her preferred options are surrogacy and adoption. She is rooting for either of both because, according to her, she fears stretch marks and cesarean section (CS). She said it has always been her dream to open her home to a baby who doesn’t have a home. She gave no timeline for having another child, though.
