Years later,in 2007, she got married to the founder and senior pastor of Trinity House church, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo whom she remained married to until her passing. The marriage experienced childbearing issues which later birthed the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation.
After having undergone In vitro fertilization (IVF) over 10 times, in her efforts to have and bear a child, Mrs. Ighodalo received inspiration to help others during her wait. The result of this was the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation which helps provide the opportunity to couples seeking help with childbearing, to get treated and improve their chances of having children.
