"I know I am blossoming but that is what happens when you are in love. I have found my soulmate, my friend, my brother and that is why I am glowing. It's not that I suddenly found love, the love has been there and we have been best of friends since our school days at University of Ibadan and when we met again years after, we remained best of friends. His kids and mine have always been wondering how the both of us can be this close, almost like brother and sister. I think they planned it. They were like why don't you two just get married and we started thinking and after a while, we felt this is God telling us its time and that's it"
Ibinabo says she said yes without thinking when he proposed to her and that her children and his planned his proposal to her
"I think it was God's will because I just said yes without thinking about it. Everything was just perfect. Perfect timing also. He is an Igbo man. I think the kids planned it more than we did. That's how it is because the day he asked me, his kids were calling and the kids were all abroad while we were in Nigeria so everybody was eager to know my reply. The kids were like daddy have you asked, mine were also calling to say mummy hope you said yes. It was a beautiful moment and everyone was happy" she said.
On what she admires about her fiance, she said
"He looks after a woman every well. He adores me and he is a family oriented man. He loves his family. He loves us totally and he is committed to his work. He encourages me a lot in what I do and we pray a lot. We have the fear of God which is paramount in our relationship. I think we are heading the right direction and of course with my kind of lifestyle, and the kind of work that I do, every man would withdraw but no, he is always there, giving me the strength, support and ideas to better what I am doing. So I really do admire him"
