Damilola Adegbite has told media personality, Chude Jideonwo about some probing questions her son asks her in the wake of her divorce from his father, Chris Attoh.
She said during the interview that the little boy often asks why his father is not with them and the emptiness he feels when his friends are with their fathers.
The Nollywood star also spoke briefly about the marriage and how she has managed to drag herself along after if it failed.
In her words;
“My marriage didn’t work but I learnt a massive lesson from that experience and it is that love is not enough…when you meet someone you want to send the rest of your life with, love is not enough…for me it is done, the only regard i have for him now is that he is the father of my son, I don’t regret anything.”
When you have a child, well for me, the dynamics change, the things i say and do….he turned seven a few days ago and the he won’t always be seven, the questions are already coming, why is daddy not here, my friends’ dad did this….and all so I will rather let all the information later to him when he is old enough…it is hard to be able to strike a balance between the truth and what he needs to know now…he asks questions and it is hard to not be dishonest and at the same time not badmouth his father and reveal just enough….that is where the challenge is for me….i find it as a responsibility i have chosen to carry 100% and I am enjoying it….like now if I have to make some decisions, i will need to reach his dad etc…initially it was tough but now I’m riding with the waves”
