After several backlashes for marrying an older man, and predictions that the union will not last, actress Regina Daniels has apparently shut down critics as she opens up and speaks about the contentment and fulfillment marriage has brought her.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, Daniels-Nwoko, spoke about marriage and her pregnancy experience, saying she didn’t face any challenges. “Before I got pregnant, people said pregnancy was hard; and the journey wasn’t easy. As a matter of fact, I heard so much. But I am still very young and it was more like living my normal life. I didn’t even have morning sickness and I didn’t face any challenges of any kind. It was pretty normal for me,” she said.
Recalling her first impression when she met her husband, the actress said, “Being married to him (Ned Nwoko), I feel free. I can do whatever I want, dress however I like and live my life. He is always pushing me to be a better person. He brings me out there because he wants me to be more exposed. He wants me to see the world in a different way. As a matter of fact, there are so many things I just can’t start to explain.
“The first impression I had when I met him, which I will keep saying is that he looked like a farmer. We actually went on a tour to his house in the village (Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State) and he was so polite and educative. He wants one to know about nature and the world in general.
He wants one to experience different things, so he was always trying to educate us on that particular visit.”
