Damilola Adegbite: “I Didn’t Use Pregnancy To Tie Chris Attoh Down”
Actress Damilola Adegbite has denied using her pregnancy for hubby Chris Attoh to rope him into marriage.
The duo met on the set of TV show, Tinsel, starting a relationship that became a marriage months back.
Adegbite had given birth to their son, Bryan, before they got married, and in an interview with Blanck magazine, spoke about his reaction to the pregnancy.
“I remember when I told Chris I was pregnant, he laughed uncontrollably. I was shocked. He was so happy and that was all that mattered to me at that time,” she said in the interview.
“Bryan is a miracle and was given to us for a reason we both know. He came at the time we did not expect but it was such a beautiful timing. I would not trade that feeling for a million fans,” she further said.
“Some people have asked me if having a child obligated me Chris to marry me and here is my answer; there are a lot of baby mamas out there who their baby daddies did not marry, so having a kid for a guy does not guarantee anything.
“For us, Bryan sealed the deal for us; his coming made us know that God was leading us to the path we had always wanted and it would have been foolish for us not to jump on it. And Bryan brought a lot of change, redirection, focus, organisation and unity.”

Mr. Opadokun added that policemen were mobilised to the scene to evacuate the corpses and the convey the injured to the hospital, adding that investigation into the blast was ongoing.
Sepp Blatter Resigns As FIFA President
Just four days after celebrating his reelection, Sepp Blatter has announced his resignation from FIFA.
The Swiss announced his resignation at a press conference that was arranged hurriedly in Zurich.
“I have been reflecting deeply about my presidency and about the forty years in which my life has been inextricably bound to Fifa and the great sport of football.
“I cherish Fifa more than anything and I want to do only what is best for Fifa and for football. I felt compelled to stand for re-election, as I believed that this was the best thing for the organisation. That election is over but Fifa’s challenges are not.
“Fifa needs a profound overhaul. While I have a mandate from the membership of Fifa, I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football – the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football as much as we all do at Fifa.
“Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective Congress. I will continue to exercise my functions as Fifa President until that election.
“The next ordinary Fifa Congress will take place on May 13, 2016 in Mexico City. This would create unnecessary delay and I will urge the Executive Committee to organise an Extraordinary Congress for the election of my successor at the earliest opportunity. This will need to be done in line with Fifa’s statutes and we must allow enough time for the best candidates to present themselves and to campaign.
“Since I shall not be a candidate, and am therefore now free from the constraints that elections inevitably impose, I shall be able to focus on driving far-reaching, fundamental reforms that transcend our previous efforts. For years, we have worked hard to put in place administrative reforms, but it is plain to me that while these must continue, they are not enough.
“The Executive Committee includes representatives of confederations over whom we have no control, but for whose actions Fifa is held responsible.
“We need deep-rooted structural change. The size of the Executive Committee must be reduced and its members should be elected through the Fifa Congress.
“The integrity checks for all Executive Committee members must be organised centrally through Fifa and not through the confederations. We need term limits not only for the president but for all members of the Executive Committee.
“I have fought for these changes before and, as everyone knows, my efforts have been blocked. This time, I will succeed.
“I cannot do this alone. I have asked Domenico Scala to oversee the introduction and implementation of these and other measures.
“Mr. Scala is the Independent Chairman of our Audit and Compliance Committee elected by the Fifa Congress. He is also the Chairman of the ad hoc Electoral Committee and, as such, he will oversee the election of my successor. Mr. Scala enjoys the confidence of a wide range of constituents within and outside of Fifa and has all the knowledge and experience necessary to help tackle these major reforms.
“It is my deep care for Fifa and its interests, which I hold very dear, that has led me to take this decision. I would like to thank those who have always supported me in a constructive and loyal manner as president of Fifa and who have done so much for the game that we all love. What matters to me more than anything is that when all of this is over, football is the winner.”
