First Time Mom, Yvonne Jegede Reveals How She’s Coping As A Single Mom After The Crash Of Her Marriage

First time mom, Yvonne Jegede has picked up the broken pieces of her life and moved on after her 2-year-old marriage to fellow actor, Olakunle Fawole aka Abounce crashed few months ago. According to the actress and single mom of one, she has since bounced back to movie sets and is eager to ‘double her hustle’ for the sake of her son, Xavier.

In an interview with Inside Nollywood, Mama Xavier said;

“Certainly, my new status would impact on the type of roles I would accept. Now, I would only do big jobs that can fetch more money, because school fees is coming and the bank account has to look nice to be able to afford the expenses. I would be a lot busier this year.”

Speaking further, Miss Jegede said:

“Having my baby was a journey; more like an experience I can never forget. Motherhood has taught me endurance and patience. There are times I would want to sleep but I cannot because my baby is awake and I would have to keep him company.”

Speaking on why she took to social media to break the shocking news of her marital crisis, the actress said:

“It started when I changed my name on social media, from Fawole back to my maiden name. That’s how it should be at the moment.”

Jegede further spoke on how she’s coping with the heartbreak, as her marriage didn’t survive up to two years.

“I’m alright. It is nothing. Don’t I look alright? I’m good. I do not regret my marriage to him. I have never regretted anything in my life. Every experience is something to learn from. There really is nothing for me to sit down and wish I didn’t do or should have done.”

The actress, however, explained why her estranged husband wasn’t present at the christening of their baby boy.

“I really don’t know why he wasn’t there. Maybe you should ask him. However, I don’t feel bad that he wasn’t there and as you can see, I’m in high spirits.”
