Popular Nigerian actress, Nkechi Blessing has shared her journey to motherhood and how she got married secretly in a recent interview.
Nkechi Blessing told Punch Newspaper that her husband is very private and does not like putting his life out in the public but her decision not to announce her marriage and childbirth was her personal decision.
In her words according to a report by Theinfong.com, she said;
“My marriage is the part of my life I wanted to be quiet about. I know that I have always been loud about all my relationships but I also like and deserve privacy too. I only show people what I want them to see. It is my marriage and everyone should not know who I am married to.
My husband does not like social media. Before some people bombard him with messages on social media, looking for what is not lost. He does not even comment on my Instagram posts. I know I am a loud person but even spiritually, it is advisable not to always have too much buzz around everything one does.
I gave birth and no one knew until they saw my child. Everything is possible as long as one has people who are not selling one out. It is one’s friends that often sell one out, and once one cuts that down, one’s secret would be safe.
“My husband knows what I can do and he is not bothered about gossips he reads online. He is what people call the ‘ginger partner’. He knows the truth about me and that is why I can be unapologetic about my actions. I think it is important for one to marry an understanding partner.”
