Nollywood actress Regina Chukwu has gone down memory lane as her daughter celebrates her 21st birthday today, 6th April 2022.
In the tearful post shared on her Instagram page, Regina Chukwu recounts that being a widow in her 20s became the most painful, confused, devastating and excruciating time.
According to Regina Chukwu, when her husband died, they had nothing on them as they had spent everything on his health, but now, all she could say was thank you to God.
She wrote: HAPPY BIRTHDAY HER MOTHER’S DAUGHTER! It’s my first child and only biological daughter’s 21th birthday
It’s been a great journey getting here, and looking back all I can murmur under my breath is ‘we made it here’ THANK YOU LORD
Permit me to take y’all on a short journey down memory lane (a bit emotional this morning)
So it happened that, when I had to take my sick husband (now late) back to the village as I have exhausted all avenues possible to see that his health improves, so I decided to take him back to his parents so we could all knw what next to do.
I left Amaka with my parents back here in Lagos and went with the little baby I just had. After some months their father eventually died and I was shattered, turning a widow at that young age wasn’t something I had bargained for, it was indeed the most confused, painful, devastating, excruciating time of my life (still is) I didn’t even knw what to feel or do.
Now as the customs of the Land is children had to be present, I had one with me, so my mum brought Chiamaka who was just 2yr old then, the little girl was just so happy to see mummy, every other thing she doesn’t understand (lol) I looked at her and fresh tears made their ways down my cheek, I said to myself ‘how I go take do am now’ in my 20’s with 2 kids HOW REGINA, HOW’ remember, I was sitting down there with ZERO NAIRA BALANCE, we had spent everything we had trying to save their fathers life, no even a good piece of cloth to my name …… so sorry guys tears won’t let me continue …. Gat to stop here
Pls help me wish my daughter a happy birthday
Pls help me pray for my daughter
Pls help me thank God
Pls help me sing a song of paise
Happy birthday @nwaforracheal_ her mother’s daughter… I love you deep my bestie of all time
