Actress Alex Okoroji is not happy again. The actress whose only child, a boy, clocked 6 recently, sent out a broadcast thanking friends and fans for remembering her son by sending him birthday messages, she however noted in the broadcast that his father hasn’t still acknowledged him. She wrote;
“Ray shares the same birthday with his father… his step sisters called, his father’s ex wife called but his father didn’t send a single birthday message for the sixth time in six years. Yet you did, you took out time from your busy schedule to acknowledge him…,” she said while appreciating them in a whatsapp message.
Saturday Beats however deemed it fit to ask her what might have prompted such hatred, and here’s what the actress said;
“If you get an answer from him, please let me know. I’m also curious to know why. How can anyone not acknowledge the existence of his first son who is his splitting image, a child he was present at his birth, a child born into his arms, on his own birthday – a gift he had requested from God many times, with his own mouth in front of many? He even knew the child was there before I realised it. He knew the child was a boy before I did a scan,” she said.
“I only feel sad for him mostly because one doesn’t trade his/her right as a parent because the relationship with the former partner broke down. It’s his loss really. I’m having a great time experiencing the love and affection of this beautiful amazing child who knows how much I love him and will do anything for him. My son doesn’t lack anything. He has a grandfather (Tony Okoroji) who adores him and a family who loves him and will always be a part of his life. I’m grateful to God for that.
“I have a civil relationship with his family. I have nothing against them. I can’t say they have done anything in particular to hurt me personally. We all have to remember that blood is thicker than water. Sometimes, silence is consent. I have translated that to mean that they approve of Captan’s irresponsibility. And honestly, my focus right now is on much more important things,” she said.
