Supermodel Hamamat Montia seldom speaks about her private life— she is all for business but today, she has opened up on her divorce and how she dealt with it.
According to the CEO of Hamamat Beauty Products and Skin Care, she survived her divorce because she had her kids in those worrying times.
“You know when things did not go as planned, it was painful, it hurt but I had to be strong. I looked around to find what could keep me going then one day, I heard my daughters say to each other that they wanted to be like me when they grew up and that was the wake-up call for me, that I had to pick up the pieces and move on.”
“If not for anything at all, I want to be that great woman, that strong mommy they can look up to. I was expected to look someway because my partner had moved on way earlier than I expected but no, I didn’t, I stood my grounds and today, I am here, I just want to give my children a reason to be happy.”
The mother of three did not give details to what led to the divorce but took part of the blame— she is of the view that it takes two people to make a relationship work.
“I would blame myself too because it takes two people to make it work but if I am not in a happy place, I will not stay there because of my children, no, I need to leave to be strong and hold them down when the need arises.
“I know there are lots of women who are in marriages that are causing them pain but are staying with the excuse that they want the best for their children but no, you cannot hold your children down when you kick the bucket when you are devastated etc,” she said.
