Actress Uche Ogbodo has shared a bit about training her child as a single mom, saying she sometimes cry over her status as a single mom as she never expected she would be one.
She revealed that it has not been easy raising her daughter alone, and said it was one of the hardest things she had to deal with emotionally and psychologically. She said;
“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.”
On her weightloss;
“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.
“My boyfriend always motivated me to lose weight. He used to tell me that I am beautiful and I needed to show it. I also didn’t want to lose him at that time, so since he was interested in skinny girls and deep down inside me, I am a skinny girl in a fat body; I had to shed some weight to feel better.”
