Veteran actor Pete Edochie and wife, Josephine celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary on Sunday, October 2.
Just like other of his kids, Yul Edochie also took out time to celebrate his parents on his verified Instagram page.
“Celebration of life. 53yrs of marriage for our parents, Chief & Mrs Pete Edochie.
Congratulations Daddy & Mummy.
I love you deeply. I thank God Almighty for the life of our parents.
I thank everyone who stepped out to rejoice with us. May God bless you all abundantly,” he captioned the video he shared.
Yul Edochie’s post met with lot of criticisms as his fans on social media wondered why he didn’t take after his parents’ one man, one wife lifestyle, rather he went out of line to marry two wives.
Just like Yul, when his first wife May celebrated her parents in-law on her Instagram page, her message sparked reaction on social media.
Yul and May’s estranged marriage had been the subject of social media trends, after Yul welcomed a son with second wife, Judy Austin in July.
Her message on Instagram read, “Pls fam join me to celebrate the great @peteedochie and his adorable wife. We are grateful to the Almighty for the gift of life. 53 years and counting! May God continue to strengthen you both and give you peace”.
Reacting to the message, @akosuamansah_ on Instagram said, “She didn’t use father-in-law. Happy anniversary legend.”
@euphrosa said, “She’s tactful not to call them father-in-law and mother-in-law. Great Pete Edochie and his wife. Prodigal son will stain everybody’s white.”
@devivsignature added, “Your sense of maturity has made me respect you more.
