CELEBRITY GIST: Nollywood Actress Uche Ogbodo has opened up on her life as a single mother and how the absence of a father figure in her daughter’s life has made life hectic for her.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actress said she never expected to be a single mother as she is a woman who cherishes marriage and starting a family.
In her own words:
“It hasn’t been easy raising my daughter alone, I never ever wished I’d be a single mother because I am a family person and I am someone that has always loved marriage and raising a family. It’s sad for me; sometimes I cry over it because it is not easy raising my child alone. There were times when my daughter asked me about her father and I don’t know what to tell her.
It is one of the hardest things I have had to deal with emotionally and psychologically but it has made me stronger. I think it is my destiny to have her; God used her to open another chapter of my life. She is a very strong motivation to who I am now.”
The fitness enthusiast also told Saturday Beats how she was motivated to shed some fat.
“I had lots of motivation to lose weight, I always like to look beautiful and comfortable and I needed to take back my place in my career. Another major reason is because I didn’t want to be too out of shape because of my career; I didn’t want to be seen as old in the entertainment industry.”
The actress allegedly abandoned her estranged husband years ago because he was bedridden and broke.
