Coping with broken marriage – Yvonne Jegede spills
Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede has confirmed that she’s ready to pick up the broken pieces of her life and move on after her barely two year old marriage to Olakunle Fawole, aka Abounce, crashed few months ago.
Now a single parent, Jegege who had since bounced back to movie sets maintained that she is eager to double her hustle for her son’s sake.
“Certainly, my new status would impact on the type of roles I would accept. Now, I would only do big jobs that can fetch more money because school fees is coming and the bank account has to be looking nice to be able to afford the expenses. I would be a lot busier this year.
Having my baby was a journey; more like an experience I can never forget. Motherhood has taught me endurance and patience. There are times I would want to sleep but I cannot because my baby is awake and I would have to keep him company,” she stated.
Speaking on why she took to social media to break the shocking news of her marital crisis, the new mum said: “Well, it started with when I changed my name on social media, from Fawole back to my maiden name. That’s how it should be at the moment,” she squealed.
When further asked how she’s coping with the heartbreak as the union which was well admired didn’t live up to two years.
The dark and beautiful actress said, “I’m alright. It is nothing. Don’t I look alright? I’m good. I do not regret my marriage to him. I have never regretted anything in my life. Every experience is something to learn from. There really is nothing for me to sit down and wish I didn’t do or should have done.”
Sadly, her enstranged husband, Abounce wasn’t present at the christening of their baby boy, Xavier, Yvonne explains why: “I really don’t know why he wasn’t there. Maybe you should ask him. However, I don’t feel bad that he wasn’t there and as you can see, I’m in high spirits.”
