On entrance behind to a film industry: Yes, we have been off a shade for a few years now, though we am gradually operative my approach back. It is not easy to be divided from work and everybody knows; though when we are behind to work it is still tough for everybody to know. That is partly my error since we have not postulated interviews – we am unequivocally heedful of a press and my difference have been taken out of context. we have been bustling operative on several things including operative with a United Nations.
On balancing work and family: It is intensely difficult, we do not know how women make it occur though somehow we make it happen. we usually take it one day during a time and try not to be too stressed. we learnt to devise forward and that is a usually way. we have a good support network in my nanny, silent and my father since infrequently when we am not benefaction with a kids, we have to make certain there is someone efficient to do that. It is tough since when i am out all day and i lapse home i still have to be a silent and a wife. we am grateful that there is some-more definition to my life as against to when we was singular and in a movies.
On assembly her husband: We met in Lagos. we usually relocated from London and he usually returned from Chicago. We got articulate since he wanted me to benefaction a radio show. we did not get a pursuit though we did get a dude. It was work-related though we found out we connected. We were friends for a while before we started dating. Then, we was not out for a date. we favourite him for his certainty and he gave me my space too. He was a genuine lady and well-spoken. When it was time for a engagement, we knew it would happen, though we did not know when. we knew what it was like to make a mistake since my relatives were not together and we indispensable to be sure. we was career driven though not driven about marriage.
On a proposal: The offer was unequivocally nice. He got down on his knees and due and people were emotional. Shortly after that we got married. We had Ayomide, a initial daughter who is now three, and Dasola who is 10 months aged now.
On being married and a celebrity: Celebrity marriages are not different. The usually reason is that people are looking during you. The hurdles are a same though are amplified in luminary marriages. That puts a lot of vigour on a union. The initial thing is to marry your friend. You have to marry for a right reason. we married for love; someone we am totally in astonishment of and respect. It is difficult, though when we have God, there is a change that cones with it. It is fun and challenging. It is easy to get undone though people need to remember their vows.
