Actress Damilola Adegbite has denied using her pregnancy to rope Chris Attoh into marrying her.
The Tinsel star who described their son, Bryan said in an interview with Blanck magazine that, her pregnancy was not the reason for their marriage, rather, “Bryan sealed the deal for us; his coming made us know that God was leading us to the path we had always wanted and it would have been foolish for us not to jump on it. And Bryan brought a lot of change, redirection, focus, organisation and unity.”
Below is an excerpt of her interview with Blanck Magazine
My partner and I have made decisions based on how we deem fit and I will totally take having a baby out of wedlock than having an abortion. The baby came at the best time he was meant to come. We love each other and already had plans of being together so why not. Thankfully our families and those who their opinions really mattered were ok with our decisions.
I recall in a recent article, where the same question was thrown at the musician Brymo and he said that – children were a product of love and not marriage and I completely agree. I’m not one to live my life based on other people’s standards. Fortunately for me, I didn’t get a lot of heat from people, in fact most people who knew about us were very happy about everything.
The people who knew the journey that we passed through called it a miracle that we could come this far. I remember when I told Chris I was pregnant, he laughed uncontrollably… I was shocked. He was so happy and that was all that mattered to me at the time. My family is doing great and I hope that everyone can respect that. Like the saying goes- whoever wears the shoe, knows where the shoe pinches (laughing).
Bryan is a miracle and was given to us for a reason we both know. He came at the time we didn’t expect but it was such a beautiful timing. I wouldn’t trade that feeling for a million fans. Some people have asked me if having a child obligated Chris to marry me and here’s my answer, there are a lot of baby mamas out there who their baby daddies didn’t marry, so having a kid for a guy doesn’t guarantee anything.
To us, Bryan sealed the deal for us- his coming made us know that God was leading us to the path we had always wanted and it would have been foolish for us not to jump on it. And Bryan brought a lot of change, redirection, focus, organisation and unity.
