My baby daddy not involved in our daughter’s life – Uche Ogbodo
She made this revelation in an inetrview with The Punch:
“That is a part of my life I don’t want to go back to. I believe that whatever happened was for the best. God has a reason for things happening. I don’t feel like I made any mistake; it just didn’t work. We were never married though the media made it seem like we were; we were only engaged. I have never been married.
The relationship actually started collapsing shortly after we got engaged. I realised that I was pregnant after we had broken up and I initially couldn’t tell anybody about it. At that point, I was thinking of going back to him and it took about nine months for me to realise that I didn’t want that kind of man in my life.
He would only drag me back. He hasn’t been involved in the life of our child over the years. Mildred is four years old now. He initially didn’t accept that I was pregnant; he thought I was trying to trap him. I had been trying to get pregnant during the relationship; so, he wondered how I ‘suddenly’ fell pregnant after we broke up.
I have been able to take care of my child alone. I never thought I would be a single mother but I am a Catholic girl and we preach against abortion.
