Happy Dad, happy kids! Meet Joseph Benjamin’s adorable kids


Yeah, handsome actor/presenter, Joseph Benjamin has two kids – a 10 year old daughter and a 7 year old son.
Despite being separated from their mum, he still has time to play his daddy duties.
Joseph says “They are an
integral part of my life; their mum and I have a very good arrangement
on how to balance their lives and make sure that psychologically they
are stable and unaffected by our separation. “
Joseph Benjamin explains why he separated from their mum below:
“I’ve been separated for a year now but we still keep
a good relationship, and our separation was a mutual agreement. She is a
good woman but I could not go on with the union anymore seeing the
foundation it was built on was untrue.

I was married for 8 years. It was a rather odd
situation at that time. She got pregnant and I didn’t want to have a
child out of wedlock and so I married her so we could build a home
together for the unborn child. Things weren’t rosy then, but I believed
it was the right thing to do for the sake of the child. I
overlooked my own personal desires, I just wanted to do right.

Our
second child came and I stood by my family like I always have; but no
one is perfect, we had our issues – the crisis persisted but we stayed
because of the kids. But you never make that kind of decision because if
the parents are not happy together then the children suffer.”

  1. Lovely kids but Joseph shld stop saying he married her cos she got pregnant afterall nobody forced u.is it dat now u realize she is not good enof?shior

  2. Kudos to you Joseph! A lot of people think staying in a turbulent marriage cos of the kids is healthy but it damages the kids more. All they want is a peacefull and loving environment regardless of the number of parents. Lovely kids. I bet they are well balanced knowing that their parents love them even if they don't live under the same roof.

  3. An indigenous proverb says " make friend with a good person, that u know is good enough for marriage" Dat is to say, dnt be in a non-platonic relationshp wt smn u knw u CAN'T have as ur HUBBY. Cos u nvr can tell; if circumstances like dis can arise!
