- Nollywood actress Amanda Ebeye reveals why she did not marry the father of her son
- The Clinic Matters' actress speaks on the joy of motherhood and being a single mother
- Ebeye welcomes her son in November 2016 after denying being pregnant
Nollywood actress Amanda Ebeye was among celebrities that welcomed babies in 2016 only that the father of her baby is not known as she has the child outside wedlock.
The Clinic Matters actress in an interview with Punch reveals why she did not marry the father of her son.
“I did not marry the father of my child because he is not my husband and he is not meant to be. I could have been in the most useless relationship right now if I wanted but I told myself instead of giving my son this shameless pretender and liar of a man as a father, I would take care of him and he will be fine.
I tell you that since I took that stance, I’ve not looked back for one day and God keeps giving me the strength to move on. If it is God’s, one day a good man will come and you’ll be invited to my wedding but for now, I’m single and all that matters to me is my son.”
Of course her action of getting pregnant outside wedlock received a lot of bashing and tongue lashing from her fans especially on social media, the actress said everybody is entitled to their opinion. She said she did not feel bad for her action and that most people condemning her do not know what other people go through before burying them alive. She said:
"And the most painful part is that it is mostly women that do these criticisms. Some are even going through worse situations but they come on social media, wearing make-up and fine clothes and start commenting but when they go home, their husbands would slap them for not cooking their food early, and they receive it with smiles, walk away and say I’m fighting for my man. Hypocrites!”
Ebeye despite being a single mother is enjoying every bit of motherhood and she has a word for women in abusive relationships:
“It’s been amazing. People think it’s very hard and difficult but I’ll tell you this today and I’ll use this medium to speak to women going through bad relationships. You can do it alone, do not let some man think he’s your Alpha and Omega. That’s for the Lord.
Honour your husband. Be diligent as a wife. Do your job as a wife. Be his mother, cook his meals and cater to your family. Have a job so you can support your family too. He pays the fees, you can choose to pay for a vacation for the family to France.
Do all you can as a good wife and a virtuous woman but if you do all that and he disrespects you, cheats on you and gives you bull please know you stand right with God and don’t be scared to walk out the door with your kids.”
Meanwhile, actress Tonto Dikeh has flaunted her engagement ring in her attempt to put an end to her rumoured marital crisis. The actress alleged marriage break up started on Friday, January 14 when she removed her husband's surname from her Instagram page.
