Nigerian actress and one half of identical twins, Chidiebere Aneke, has said she doesn’t feel pressured to start a family at her age.
The Enugu-born actress said that the idea of women feeling pressure to have a child is dependent on their circle of friends.
Chidiebere said; “I have never been under pressure to have a child. I have also never heard that some women get pressurised to have children, unmarried. It depends on the people one associates with anyway”.
When asked if she is in a relationship with someone, she said: “The qualities I desire in my partner are honesty and a good conscience. If a person has a good conscience, they won’t hurt their partners.
It is not accurate to say that it is usually difficult for actresses to find true love, because some men desire to be with them due to their fame and wealth. Anybody saying that is not being truthful. Love is a beautiful thing, and when a lady’s path crosses that of the right man for her, everything will fall into place. However, I have never lost a relationship because of the kind of job I do.”
In related news, Nigerian comedian, Chioma Omeruah, popularly known as Chigul, has revealed that she got married to her husband as a virgin.
The Nollywood star also said she was 33 years old when she settled down with her hubby, but they got divorced after a year.
She shared her story via social media in reaction to a post by Elsie, ex-wife of comedian, Basketmouth, talking about women, marriage and children after their split.
Chigul said people advised her to give birth to a child during her marital crisis as it will save her marriage but she was of the opinion that it wasn’t necessary.
The actress said; “We were not perfect, there were good days I won’t lie. It just got to a place where we both didn’t care anymore. I have been made to believe that it was my job to keep that afloat and the fact that it sank, I take on my head.
Would I have changed anything about it? No, because it happened for a reason. I’m happy it happened at one year with no children and no attachments. I married at 33, I married a virgin. That was my first ever anything and it was supposed to be special and last.”
