Nollywood actress/wife/mother of three, Omoni Oboli, has opened up about her marital life and family. Omoni has been married for 14 years with 3 boys. Here are excerpts from her new chat with The Sun:
I’ve been married for almost 15 years.
You have all boys, what is it like raising boys?
It is like raising any kid.
Are you thinking of having girls soon?
I wish I could but there is no guarantee, so I don’t think I want to have another boy. But if there is a guarantee, I would have a girl.
The first time you met your husband, was it love at first sight?
I don’t know if I can call it love at first sight. Honestly, I don’t know. No, it wasn’t love at first sight because I met him four years before we actually started dating. I didn’t remember him when I saw him four years later. But I remembered that I have met him. When we met it wasn’t anything romantic for me, but I fell in love with the way he loved me. You know that happens when someone just loves you unconditionally. I was like ‘do people like this still exist?’
At what point did you know he was the one?
When we started dating, it took like two weeks… He proposed to me like two weeks into the relationship. Four months later, we got married.
Just four months of courtship and you are still together?
Yes, we are still here.
How have you been able to hold him down?
Can you hold anybody down? Communication is the key and the decision to stay married by both parties. I am in this forever, so I would do whatever it takes to make it work, and the friendship that you share is also very important.
