Ade Adepitan welcomes baby Bolla

Around two and a half years since their wedding, Ade and Elle welcomed a son named Bolla. Their firstborn child was born on January 4th, 2021.

Speaking to iNews, Ade said that the BBC show’s topic of climate change was particularly poignant as he now has a son: “I look at him… and I sometimes have shivers up my spine when I think what kind of planet might be left for him when I pass away“.

Prior to Bolla’s birth, Ade and Elle started their own YouTube channel – Adepifam – where they address misconceptions about interracial and inter-abled relationships, their 17 year age gap and share their lives!

Their YouTube channel features all kinds of videos from “10 Things we didn’t know about having a baby” to how to couple met and “How we found our dream accessible house in London“.
