Few weeks back, beautiful actress Venita Akpofure welcomed the tiny patter of baby’s feet. She is still rocking motherhood and not in a haste to get back to work. ENCOMIUM Weekly had a chat with the elated mother on joys of motherhood.
How does it feel to be a mother?
Quite confusing in a beautiful way. You are overwhelmed with feelings of awe and compassion. You become incredibly protective. You feel blessed and very passionate about everything in this world that is around your bundle of joy. But if I had to sum it up in a sentence, I feel complete.
What went through your mind when your daughter was placed in your arms?
I was relieved because the birthing experience was successfully complete when the midwife placed her on my chest. I was intrigued. Instantly, I wanted to know everything about who she is in 3 seconds which was obviously impossible. I was very tired yet very excited to meet her and eager to bond and begin our journey together.
How are you rocking motherhood?
As best as time allows me to. So, hopefully quite well.
What is the best thing about being a mother?
Having a daughter, and seeing myself through her eyes.
We learnt you are now married, please confirm?
How did it happen, when, where?
Everything in this life happens in God’s time for everybody.
How did your path and his cross?
Some stories are best enjoyed and experienced.
What was the attraction?
The many things we have in common and of course he is pretty easy on the eyes.
What do you cherish most about him?
The fact that He loves me as I am.
