Adesua Etomi-Wellington is the latest cover star of Genevieve Magazine. There, she talked about her life, marriage and career. Below is an excerpt of the interview where she talked about her private life, the media and the change in her life since getting married.
On if sharing her private life with the rest of the world means it’s no longer hers alone
I don’t necessarily agree with that because it depends on what is consistently shared. People share what they are comfortable with and withhold what they’d rather keep private. I can see the rationale behind it, but I don’t think it’s so black and white.
We allowed our fan base to share our joy on our wedding day and we’re glad we did. They were going to see it anyway, thanks to social media and smart phones so we decided to do it on our own terms. Love has a way of bringing people together and it’s beautiful to see.
Nothing has changed at all. He loves me, I love him and sometimes we share tiny pieces of that love with others. We have decided to love each other the way we choose to and it’s working out great and will continue to by God’s grace.
On the biggest change in her life since getting married
The biggest change in my life would be coming home to the love of my life. It’s one of the most amazing things about being married. Coming home and being happy to come home, knowing that it’s my safe place.
I have someone to talk to, rant to, cry to, share my day with. My husband and I crack each other up so our home is filled with laughter. Also, the bible wasn’t lying when it said ‘one shall chase a thousand and two shall chase ten thousand’.
I’m his priority, he’s mine and we make sacrifices where we need to. If he needs to be away and my schedule isn’t hectic, I go with him and vice versa. We also talk a lot. (Laughs). It keeps us in sync.
