Beautiful love story! How doughnuts and soft drinks brought Helen Paul & her hubby together

Popular female comedienne and mother of three, Helen Paul, who has been happily married for five years, has shared her beautiful love story with SUN newspaper. 

 
See excerpts below:

I met him through my boss where I was formerly working.He was a friend to my boss. While he always saw me as too playful
and jumpy, I saw him as too stingy,” 

According to Tatafo, the reason she thought her husband was stingy
was that whenever he came to the office, he never bothered to buy
anything for her and her co-workers unlike her boss’ other friends who
were always generous.

“Those days when my boss’ colleagues came visiting, they always
reached out to us when leaving. They gave us money which we used to buy
doughnuts and soft drinks but my husband never gave us anything.

“He would just wave his hand and say ‘bye bye guys, take care of
yourselves’,” she says, mimicking a stern and unfriendly male voice,
adding, “So we always saw him as a selfish lawyer.”

However, one day, Tatafo summoned all the courage she could and decided to confront him.

“On that fateful day, I summoned courage and as he was leaving, I
told him, ‘sir, you don’t buy us anything any time you come but we
really like you. If you can be buying us doughnuts and soft drinks, we
would be very grateful’. He started laughing, so I quickly added, ‘sir,
it’s not only me o. My colleagues are also involved, so please don’t
tell our boss’.”


Indeed, Tatafo’s move paid off as her future husband laughed it off
after which he reached into his pockets and gave them ‘something’ for
lunch.

“We were so happy I asked for his phone number which he gave me. And
then I gave his number to my friends and we all started calling to thank
him. He realised that we really desired the doughnuts and soft drinks
so whenever he came by, he would give us money for doughnuts and soft
drinks. He never failed to deliver whenever he showed up and we never
stopped thanking him. And then one day, he took a good look at me and
said ‘baby, I love you’ and the rest is history.”
