The award winning athlete just became a wife a few weeks ago but she isn’t in a hurry to be a mother.

Nigerian track/field athlete and world medalist Blessing Okagbare got married to her Nigerian soccer heartthrob Igho Otegheri in Sapele, Delta State few weeks ago.

Surprisingly, Blessing jetted back to her base in Los Angeles and she says that she has no plans of starting a family now.

She tells TC mag: –

“A family, hahaha, I am not planning about that now. At the moment I have goals that must be accomplished and other things to be achieved professionally, so starting a family immediately after my wedding is actually not in the schedule for me right now, no way. Honestly, we have already talked about it and my hubby knows what I do for a living. We have talked about it and he knows there are things I must get done in my career which are very important to me.

Having kids now is out of it, there are things in my career that must be accomplished before we start thinking of building a family. After my wedding the next agenda is to accomplish all the things I have set out to achieve and that is it, not having babies, this will surely come later.”

On what attracted her to her husband Blessing reeled off: –

“(Laugh) Well, he is God fearing that is very important to me. He is also a gentleman. I mean a true gentleman all in all.Whatever you can think of, so that was what attracted me to him. Of course I love him, when you meet people you actually get to understand them. When we met he was not a perfect man, but with time he was reborn to my taste and I found out some other good things about him I cannot say right now publicly.”
