Joseph Yobo’s wifey, Adaeze tells their Love story :)

24 year old ex-beauty queen, Adaeze met Joseph Yobo in 2009, got married and gave birth in 2010.
In a new interview with The Sun, she revealed how she met hubby Joseph Yobo and why she got married so early.

I met him in Nigeria through a friend at an event. From there, we became close friends. I became pregnant and we got married
im­mediately. Everything happened in a very short time. A lot of people
thought it wasn’t going to work but at that moment, I knew I felt
something I had never felt with anyone in my life and I said to myself,
why not take that chance? I’m quite prayerful , so I knew there’s no way
I could err, though I never planned getting married
so early. I had so many dreams of what I wanted in life. Mar­riage was
the last thing on my mind. It hap­pened so fast and I thought I should
give it a shot.

On what attracted him to him

When we first met, I didn’t know who he is really. He
didn’t know that I was the most beautiful girl in Nigeria. When I knew
he was a footballer, I said to myself this relation­ship might not work
or lead us anywhere, because of the lifestyle of some footballers who have so many girlfriends.

On any regrets marrying him

Not at all. No marriage can ever be perfect. Even my relationship with
my mum can never be perfect. I have never regretted any moment with my
husband and I always say to my sisters and cousins that I don’t know
what I could have been without my hus­band. I wondered the kind of man I
would have ended up with if I didn’t marry him. I thank God that He
planned my life and I’m living the life He planned for me. God has been
gracious to me in every way.
