NOLLYWOOD actress, Christabel Egbenya, has shared her motherhood journey and some changes that she has encountered since she had her first child a few weeks ago.
In a recent interview, she said: “A whole lot has changed since I had my baby. Now, I really know what motherhood is all about. A lot of things changed about me, about life, the way I reason, the way I see things has automatically changed. Bringing another soul is something else. It has taught me a whole lot of lessons. Christabel has changed.
“Ever since I had my baby, my mentality, my reasoning has changed. My world, the ‘baby girl’ life and everything else, changed for now, I think till after having all my kids. You know you have to give your children time, you have to check up on them, you have to take care of them. Even if you have nannies, you won’t be comfortable. You’d still want to show them that mother’s love even if you have a lot of people taking care of them. That bond is something else, you just don’t know how to explain it.”
On the kind roles she would start rejecting since her marital status changed, the mother of one further revealed how she ended up marrying her fan who loves her movies.
“I don’t think I’ll reject any role because my husband loves my movies so much. He is in support of me working for people and producing my movies because he loves to see me act. He was actually my fan before we got married. Meanwhile, normally, I don’t do bad roles in the industry. We don’t actually do all those kissing, smooching, and all that they do in Nigerian movies. We don’t do it anymore. I’ve even started acting. I did a movie recently. I didn’t let people know that I’ve started working. I just want my baby to come up small, so I can start shooting fully again because you know one has to travel around. I have to give her time.”
