Nollywood actress Toyin Afolayan, popularly known as Lola Idije, revealed how her love for her female children has prevented her from remarrying after losing her husband.
Talking about why she is yet to get married after her husband’s death, she said she did not think of giving love another chance because of the love she had for her children.
“I didn’t get married again because of my children. I don’t think there are many men interested in marrying you with three children. The new husband may not like having the children live with us and there will be some problems as a result of them living with us. I cannot compare my children to anything in this world and I decided to stay with them… and forget the idea of marrying another man. I am happy that I was able to take care of them with the help of God, ”she said.
Having only female children, Lola Idije said that she believes she was destined to give birth to only girls, so that she does not worry about not having a male child.
The 61-year-old also revealed that she had a male child for her late husband, but lost it as a baby.
Lola Idije explained that the death of her male child is the saddest thing that has ever happened to her.
Regardless, the popular actress thanks God that her children are doing well.
In her words: “There is nothing wrong with all of them being girls. It is God who gives children and anyone He gives you, you just have to thank Him, because you cannot create anything. I am always a happy mother, I am happy with what God has done in my life. ”
She added that her greatest achievement is the fact that God helped her to care for my children and today she is reaping the fruit of her work on them.
