Nollywood actress, Uche Ogbodo has opened up on her relationship and motherhood and spoken extensively on her pregnancy and marriage.
In a report published by Akpraiseng, Uche Ogbodo debunked claims that she was married as the report reveals she never married and is very happy with her life as a single mother.
According to her, even in her pregnant state, men are still coming after her and she will marry at her own right time because she is still young.
“I have so many reservations on the issue of marriage right now. You know marriage is something that I wanted to try, but it didn’t work out initially. I’m not even thinking about it now but I’m very well happy about having a child as a single mother.
If marriage comes later fine. So many of our women are depressed and looking old and haggard because of the issues of marriage and pregnancies.
In Africa, we believe that its only a married woman that can get pregnant. In fact that’s what our parent taught us,” she stated.
“but to whose detriment really? To the girl’s detriment. So many aged, some are childless and many of them have entered menopause without kids because they were waiting for husbands to marry them first before they get pregnant.
Who says that men don’t come to women who have kids? Because even while pregnant men still come after me, so what’s going on? There’s still time for marriage, I’m still young and beautiful. I can still get married anytime I want. But I have my kids they’re blessings to me,” she hinted.
