Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo is expecting a baby for a guy way younger than she is.
People have lambasted her for dating and getting pregnant for someone like that as they expected that she would be with someone older or in the same age range as her.
The expectant mother has responded— she says the naysers should zip it already.
According tp Uche, she has been with older men before. People 20 or more years older than her and they did nothing for her.
They belittled and demoralized her in every sense of the word.
“I HAVE DATED A GUY WHO IS OLDER THAN ME BY 20 YEARS BECAUSE THEN I USED TO BELIEVE YOU NEED A FATHER FIGURE IN A RELATIONSHIP, YOU NEED SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP YOU, BUILD YOU, PEOPLE WHO CAN CONTROL YOU. I HAVE DATED A GUY WHO IS 20 YEARS OLDER THAN ME AND HE NEVER IMPACTED ANYTHING IN MY LIFE. HE NEVER DID ANYTHING FOR ME. MENTALLY HE NEVER. HE ABUSED ME, HE LIED TO ME.”
Uche says this guy is different, she is loved by him, he has never made her cry and makes her feel that she matters.
“LISTEN, THAT GUY HAS MADE ME HAPPY AND I HAVE NO APOLOGIES FOR IT. HE HAS MADE ME HAPPY. ALL THE WHILE I WAS WITH HIM, I NEVER CRIED, LIKE CRY, BUT I KNOW THAT I HAVE BEEN IN RELATIONSHIPS WITH OLDER MEN, MEN WHO ARE OLDER BY 20 YEARS.”
She says she decided to date a younger man and she has never been happier.
