After going 42 years without knowing her biological father, that finally changed for Stacie Turner as she reunited with her birth father just days ago in Nigeria. Her dad is to the left of her in the above photo.
The Real Housewives of DC star had her difficult quest to find her biological dad chronicled on the Bravo hit show. During the 1st season, Stacie, who was adopted early on in her life, discovered from her biological mom that her father was Nigerian. And though Stacie’s birth mom refused to reveal the identity of her father, she did hand her a photo of him. Stacie’s husband Jason Turner took that photo to the embassy and began to get leads on her father’s identity.
Fast forward to Jan. 10 when Stacie arrived in Nigeria for what she called a 2 day medical mission and most importantly, reuniting with her birth father Nze Augustine Onyema and her 10 siblings.
“Yes! just landed in Owerri Nigeria. We are guests of the Governor–doing a 2 day medical mission–then mtg my family,” Stacie tweeted Jan. 12.
According to Nigerian paper the Daily Sun, Stacie and her father were in tears when they finally saw and hugged each other. “An unbelievable reunion with my Papa in my village of Amaocha Afara, 1 of the 9 villages in Mbaitoli,” she later tweeted on Jan. 15 with the above photo.
Stacie also seems to be enjoying her time in Nigeria as she tweeted today, “I absolutely love this country and feel right at home.”
Stacie revealed that the “entire experience is being documented on film” with one of the photos she tweeted showing what looks to be a professional camcorder. And according to reports, Stacie arrived in Nigeria with hubby Jason and a big entourage.
All signs point to this monumental event in Stacie’s life being filmed by Bravo, more than likely for a season 2 of the Real Housewives of DC.
