‘It was a wrong choice that I made’ – Nollywood Actress, Eucharia Anunobi Shares On Having Son Out of Wedlock & More
The Nollywood actress opened up on being a single parent and more in a recent interview with New Telegraph. See excerpts:
On being a single parent
“It was not a deliberate choice that I have made, it came by chance, it came by mistake. God does not kill His children who have made mistakes. He would rather sustain them and tell them that He is the owner of all things. The Lord has been sustaining me as a single parent I don’t think about it, all I know is ‘God, you are the one that created me and the child that you gave to me’. So whatever that is needed of me, it was a wrong choice that I made.”
On reconciling with her son’s father
“When somebody says that I do not want to be a responsible father what do you do? You don’t take a horse to the river and force it to drink.”
On men feeling intimidated to ask her out
“…I don’t know about men being scared of me (chuckles). Well, I will take it that what you are saying is that I’m not in a relationship. Of course you know I would not want to discuss my private life. But I have to tell you what I am doing and what is not happening, I believe in things that are incubating; if it’s meant to come out, it will come out. A lot of people do not know of my commitment to my Christian life too.”
On settling down sometime
“Of course, why not? Every woman says I want tall black, handsome man. We all need good things. All the good things every normal woman wants, I want it too. He must be somebody who has the spirit of God, someone who has Christ as his backbone.”
Her life her business
Referring to your child as a mistake isn’t ok, it might be a wrong choice you made but no child is a mistake no matter the circumstances surrounding the birth.
Wish her well

All the best
