Actor shares story of 7 years of childless marriage
Adjetey Anang had his first child seven years after marriage
‘Pusher’ as he is widely known following his role in popular television series ‘Things We Do for Love’ in an interview said some people who knew about the situation advised him to resort to other means in order for his wife to conceive but he did not heed to their advice.
“Even from places that you can’t even think of imagining; Church…a man came to me at church and had this bottle and said it is from an old lady in Togo. Once you sprinkle it in water for your wife… but you shouldn’t tell your wife.“So there was so much pressure, people would say well you are not bound to have kids with her so why don’t you move on and I’m like ‘wow, that hasn’t even crossed my mind before’…and to have things like that from people whom I respect, and others, wow it wasn’t easy,” viasat1.com.gh quotes him to have said on ‘Tonight’ aired on Viasat TV.
According to Adjetey Anang, although there was pressure from some quarters, his parents and that of his wife were patient with them.
Adjetey Anang however pointed out on the Tonight Show that his family and that of his wife were critical in ensuring that they overcame their challenges during the initial seven years of marriage.
“What made it very easy was the fact that the two families, my parents and my family and hers were understanding and didn’t really bother about that and we thought that…look, it was a time to bond, so I say that there is a reason for everything,” he said.
The actor and his wife, Elorm in 2015 welcomed their first child.
