Uche Ogbodo, Nigerian actress, who is currently expecting her second child, has opened up on why she dated and got pregnant for someone younger than her.
The actress shared a video on her Instagram page, where she talked about her previous relationships and why she decided to get pregnant for someone younger then her. She said she dated men older than her in the past, but she was left heartbroken. She also referred to the father of her first child, who she said bruised her emotionally.
She said she decided to start dating younger men because her friend implored her to try it.
”I am pregnant by a man who is a complete man, who is above 25 and then you call him a small boy..you insult me and say that I am older than him, how can I be dating a teenager?
“Listen, that guy has made me happy and I have no apologies for it. He has made me happy. All the while I was with him, I never cried, like cry, but I know that I have been in relationships with older men, men who are older by 20 years.”
“I have dated a guy who is older than me by 20 years because then I used to believe you need a father figure in a relationship, you need someone who can help you, build you, people who can control you. I have dated a guy who is 20 years older than me and he never impacted anything in my life. He never did anything for me. Mentally he never. He abused me, he lied to me.”
“I have dated a guy who is ten years older than me. It didn’t work. I dated a guy who is eight years older than me. I have never dated a guy who I am older than. This is actually the first I tried it.”
”I used to see a guy who is thirty years old as a child. I used to see guys who are thirty years old as babies because I am used to dating my grandpas, grandfathers, thinking that’s the best decision for me. But, all these grandfathers, what they do is demoralise me, made me understand that I am not special, made me understand that there is nothing in me, that the strength that I feel that I have, I don’t have it. I decided to try with a younger person.”
