Cora Jakes Coleman, the daughter of famous American preacher Bishop T.D. Jakes celebrated her African heritage in a recent post she made on Instagram.


American preacher T.D. Jakes' daughter, Cora Jakes Coleman, wowed her fans with a recent picture she shared on her Instagram page that showed her dazzle in an African-print dress.

In the snapshot, Cora looked all shades beautiful as she posed on a wooden walk path outdoors. Her dress featured extended trains on either side and her backside.

Cora matched the beautiful outfit with brown heels and rocked brown hair. She smiled as she posed with one of her hands on her waist while the other rested on the walk path's railings.

In the post's caption, the preacher's daughter explained her Nigerian heritage to her fans. She said she is a Nigerian-American through her father and that they are of the Igbo tribe. She also wrote:

"My Nigerian name is Olachi Adanna, and I love learning about my culture, the music, food, and where my blood originates from in general."

Cora further described herself as a wife, mother of two adopted kids, and the author of two best-selling books, "Ferocious Warrior" and "Faithing It." She also disclosed that she is an Optavia certified health coach and fitness and health motivator.

Cora described herself as a celebrity spiritual advisor and a friend that says what others would not say. She welcomed her fans to the crew and boos and introduced her stylist, Siby McNeal, who wrapped her into her gorgeous outfit.

Cora also detailed her struggles with infertility and other personal experiences in her book.

Cora's post is not the first time she is opening up about adopting her kids. The preacher's journey to motherhood was not rosy. She has previously narrated her experience with infertility and failed IVF cycles.

Such experiences are enough to break one, but Cora's faith remained unshaken and helped her to live through the pain of infertility. In a chat, she revealed her infertility started after she was involved in a nasty car accident.

Following the accident, doctors found a cyst on both of her ovaries. She discovered she had the polycystic ovarian syndrome, which has infertility as one of its symptoms. Cora took the necessary steps and adopted her daughter when she was three years old and her son when he was an infant.

In 2018, she celebrated her son Jason's fourth birthday with a heartwarming birthday tribute in which she narrated how difficult it was for her to adopt him. She described it as amazingly bumpy but breathtakingly beautiful.
