Adaeze Yobo, a former beauty queen and the wife of popular footballer Joseph Yobo, has revealed how the footballer’s retirement affected their marriage.
In a recent interview with Mercy Johnson Okojie on her cook show, the mother of three revealed that she was relieved when he retired, but she was still concerned about him.
“I was happy he retired, we traveled around, moved around, and stayed around 5 different cities but I had the fear of how he will cope cos he breathes football and that is how he makes money, I spoke to him and talked him through it and he came out okay cos I told him it’s okay for him to tell me when he feels sad.”
Shedding light on their marriage which recently turned 12 years, Adaeze Yobo spilled that it has been beautiful.
“We met when I was 19 and he was blunt, he knew what he wanted from day one. I want to be your friend, he didn’t beat around the bush…a month later he gave me a promise ring and said he wanted to marry me. I told my mum and she is like what about your university education but he promised he will let me go to school and support me through it even in marriage and he did. I went to school in LA”
Adaeze Yobo in the interview further revealed how motherhood had made her now enjoy cooking.
