Popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has tendered a public apology to his first wife, May, for taking a second wife.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the father of five admitted that his marriage to his colleague, Judy Austin, had deeply hurt May.
He noted that he agrees with her that polygamy shouldn’t be forced on anyone while noting that his marriage to Judy was “unplanned.”.
He declared his unwavering love for May and assured her that no one can take her place in his life.
“To my dear wife, Queen May Yul-Edochie, I acknowledge that I hurt you deeply and I’ve apologized to you countless times. I take the blame for my actions. I agree with you that polygamy shouldn’t be forced on anyone. You never bargained for it from the beginning neither did I. But I guess life happens.
“You already know the whole story. I didn’t do it to disrespect you, I didn’t do it to replace you nor because I do not love you anymore, no. I have always loved you and always will. I’ve been a good husband and a wonderful father. I’ve supported all your hustle from day one, I have been an exceptional father to our children till date making sure they lack nothing and always there for everyone.
Out of 100 I have done 99 things right, hating me because of one thing isn’t the best. Nobody is perfect. I’m not. You’re not. Nobody is, except God.” He wrote in part.
This comes days after he declared himself a proud polygamist and noted that his marriage to Judy is a blessing to him and his first wife, May.
Yul Edochie announced Judy Austin as his second wife in April 2022, and his first wife, May, who apparently disapproved of the marriage, has repeatedly stated that she would not be forced to accept polygamy because it does not align with her values.
