Actor Yul Edochie has described marrying a new wife as the best decision he has ever made in his lifetime.
He said that he has always known that a day like this would come someday, adding that he didn’t need to seek his first wife’s permission to marry a new wife.
According to him, “the woman who doesn’t respect you will not respect you. And the one who loves you and respects you will be with you forever.”
On the backlashes trailing the development, the actor said everybody can’t see things the way you do. “A whole lot of people don’t know you, but judge you from what they see,” he added.
Yul Edochie and his first wife, May Aligwe Edochie have been married for 18 years. Their union is blessed with four children, three boys and a daughter.
On Wednesday, Yul Edochie surprised many fans and followers when he revealed on Instagram that he had married another woman and they share a son.
“His name is STAR DIKE MUNACHIMSO YUL-EDOCHIE. Born by my second wife @JudyAustin and I love him so much, just as much as I love my other children,” he wrote.

The announcement did not sit well with his first wife, with whom he has been married for nearly 18 years.
“May God judge you both,” she reacted to the news.
Some fans, who sympathised with May, chastised the actor for having kids with another woman.
Meanwhile, in other posts online, Yul Edochie, urged Nigerians to focus on the pertinent problems in the country, while he deals with his personal matrimonial problems.
