Nollywood actress and mother of one, Uche Ogbodo, in a recent interview with Vanguarddiscloses a lot about her life as a single parent and more.
Uche, who was once married to ex-Nigerian Footballer, Ato Ubby, revealed that her daughter has never met her father.
“As a single mother, life is more fulfilling than it would have been as a single girl without a child.
I’m still hoping to find that wonderful human being that would fill the remaining part of my needs. I’m open to anything. Yes, I’m dating, but I haven’t found the one.
Back in the days, I used to say this is the kind of man I want and all that but you know, we’re women and when a different kind of man comes and lies to you, you just fall head over heels.
In the past, I always painted pictures, but eventually I fell for the wrong person. So, let God give me the kind of man that he knows is best for me.”
On her relationship with your ex, she said:
“We’re not talking. He doesn’t keep in touch, but that’s fine.”
On what fame has robbed her of, she said:
“Fame has also brought me negative attention from guys in the area of relationship. People tend to fall in love with the you on TV and not the real you.
And when they get to know the real you, they might not like it, but still stick around just because you’re famous. And then you end up hurting each other, because the relationship is fake and based on fantasy.”
On the babymama trend, she said:
“I’m a single mother already. It happened by fate. I never wanted it to happen this way. I wanted to be married. I think it’s an individual thing. I don’t judge people.
I want to get married. I need a partner in my life, because I don’t think I want to spend the rest of my life alone with my children. Even at this age, my daughter keeps asking me about her father. She has never seen him.
This isn’t what I want and it hurts me sometimes. But what can I do and I am hoping that I can get a good daddy for my daughter. I pray that someday I will be able to say to my daughter ‘This is your daddy’, because every time she asks I never say anything.
