Former Mother-in-law actress Sophia Waithera known to many as Maria has opened up challenges she has faced as a single mother of three children.
Speaking in an interview with YouTuber Hiram Maina aka Kamuhunjia, Maria disclosed that her husband of over 15 years dumped her because she got pregnant with third kid.
While sharing her story, the veteran actress said that the journey has not been easy.
‘‘I was married at 19 years old and stayed in the marriage for 16 years. I got my three children from the same father. I got my firstborn Dennis at age 21, then my second baby Linet at 24 years and then after nine years got my third baby Victor.
The actress said that the man left her and asked her to get the person who told her to get pregnant to look after the child.
When I got pregnant with baby number three, my husband started acting unusual. He did not want another child and kept saying whoever told me to get another child should come and take care of it,” she narrated.
According to Maria, she thought at first he was not serious and maybe just reacting to the 9- year gap they lived without getting another kid but after some years without him showing up she knew he was serious about exiting their lives.
‘‘I thought that maybe after giving birth, he would come back, but he has never come back. He literally left us. I actually thought he would come back three years later. I decided to start a new life, and for the last 15 years, I have been living as a single mother,” she added
The actress is a single mother of three kids, Dennis her first born is aged 27, then Liner who is 24 and the last born named Victor is 15 years old.
The mother of three revealed that she takes care of her children by herself.
The actress further told Kamuhunjia that the father of her children after abandoning them, remarried and for the past many years has never bothered to ask about his children’s wellbeing.
She also revealed that the ex-husband had at one time said that he wanted to wives and two kids from each and to him after Maria got a third kid it was a ‘mistake’.
