MBGN 2008 winner, Adaeze Yobo who doubles as the wife of popular footballer, Joseph Yobo has revealed how her husband’s retirement from football affected their marriage.
In a recent chat with Mercy Johnson -Okojie in her cook show, the beauty queen and mother of three disclosed that she was glad when he eventually retired but she was bothered about him.
In her words:
“I was happy he retired, we traveled around, moved around, and stayed around 5 different cities but I had the fear of how he will cope cos he breathes football and that is how he makes money, I spoke to him and talked him through it and he came out okay because I told him it’s okay for him to tell me when he feels sad.”
Shedding light on their marriage which recently turned 12 years, Mrs Yobo disclosed that it has been beautiful. According to the celebrity mum:
“We met when I was 19 and he was blunt, he knew what he wanted from day one. I want to be your friend, he didn’t beat around the bush…a month later he gave me a promise ring and said he wanted to marry me.
I told my mum and she is like what about your university education but he promised he will let me go to school and support me through it even in marriage and he did. I went to school in LA.”
Adaeze in the interview also talked about motherhood and how it had made her now enjoy cooking.
