Celebrity Mum, Toyin Abraham has had it rocky in the past when it comes to relationships, but her current marriage and the blessings of motherhood seems to have lent her a breath of fresh air.
In a chat with Vanguard Allure, the filmmaker whose son, Ire, will be turning one in a few weeks said motherhood has shaped her and remolded her outlook on life.
The mum-of-one during the interview revealed that ahead of motherhood, her husband, Kolawole, had already helped her become a better person and that motherhood helped her to consolidate on those changes.
In her words:
I actually recorded everything because I had a caesarean section. I was given an injection that numbed my back.
I know I was having an operation but didn’t feel it, I was just talking. I remembered the moment they brought my baby out, my husband saw him and fainted.
It was a sweet experience. It wasn’t easy but we thank God.
Motherhood has really changed a lot about me. Even before I had my baby, my husband had already changed me. Motherhood is like icing on the cake.
It has really changed my mentality, my thinking; in fact it has changed everything about me. Now I know I am living for someone. I am living for something.”
Speaking further on how the Covid-19 has affected her and her income, she said
“It’s not easy, trust me. I can’t even work. You know it’s easy for older children to say ‘mummy, I have a headache’ but for a baby, she cannot tell you how she is feeling.
As for work, it’s just my husband who has been working for now. But when I have shoots and some endorsements, I go.
When I do, I go with my thermometer and hand sanitizer. Once I get home, I quickly take my shoes off and wash my hands. I must confess it hasn’t been easy at all.
