The joy of every father is to proudly walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day, but when circumstances beyond their control happen; then disappointment sets in.
Nollywood actress Grace Amah has voiced out her frustrations about being a single mother, and her parent’s disappointment when they found out that she was pregnant.
The talented actress, who is currently nursing a two year-old son, is living in Nigeria, while her son’s father currently resides in the UK and has no personal contact with her or his son.
Lamenting on her predicament in recent interview with a soft-sell magazine, Grace said:
“I have not seen the father of my child in a while. I live here (Nigeria) and he lives abroad (UK), though we talk on the phone often.
I come from a very strict family so my parents were a little disappointed when I got pregnant because they were hoping I would get married first but you would have to agree with me that it’s not everybody that has to get married before having a child.
It happened, and I wouldn’t because I have to get married first abort my child. Being a single mother is not easy but I manage. How do I deal with my sexual feelings since he’s not here? That’s when the phone comes in.
When I hear him, it’s all fine. It may not work for other people that way, but it works for me.
Debunking the claims that her “baby daddy” is a married man, she said: There’s no truth in the reports that my man is a married man. I don’t go for married men and to the best of my knowledge he’s not married.
Guess there is a reason God says marriage should come before children.
