Nollywood actress and single mother of a baby girl Uche Ogbodo, has said that she is still hoping to find a life partner.
The actress disclosed this during an interview with Vanguard, explaining that she did not plan to have a child outside wedlock.
According to her, “As a single mother, life is more fulfilling than it would have been as a single girl without a child.
“I’m still hoping to find that wonderful human being that would fill the remaining part of my needs. I’m open to anything. Yes, I’m dating, but I haven’t found the one.
“Back in the days, I used to say this is the kind of man I want and all that but you know, we’re women and when a different kind of man comes and lies to you, you just fall head over heels.
“In the past, I always painted pictures, but eventually I fell for the wrong person. So, let God give me the kind of man that he knows is best for me.
Speaking on the ‘baby mama’ trend, Uche Ogbodo admitted that she is a single mother, but the decision to be one is an ‘individual thing’.
“I’m a single mother already. It happened by fate. I never wanted it to happen this way. I wanted to be married. I think it’s an individual thing. I don’t judge people.
“I want to get married. I need a partner in my life, because I don’t think I want to spend the rest of my life alone with my children. Even at this age, my daughter keeps asking me about her father. She has never seen him.
“This isn’t what I want and it hurts me sometimes. But what can I do and I am hoping that I can get a good daddy for my daughter. I pray that someday I will be able to say to my daughter ‘This is your daddy’, because every time she asks I never say anything.”
