Nollywood Actress Looking For A Good Dad For Her Daughter
Uche Ogbodo, Nigerian Nollywood actress and mother of one, had a crashed marriage after a couple of months with ex-Nigerian Footballer, Ato Ubby.
The actress in a recent interview with Vanguard, spoke about life as a single mom.
Uche said: “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.”
When asked how she is managing the relationship with her ex, she said: “We’re not talking. He doesn’t keep in touch, but that’s fine.”
She also spoke on what fame has robbed her of, saying; “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 are famous. And then you end up hurting each other, because the relationship is fake and based on fantasy.”
On her relationship with her daughter, 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 her 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.”
