Peter Okoye has one wish this Fathers Day celebration which is how he wishes he had his kids earlier.
In an recent interview with Punch, the 34 year old, other duo of the P square and father of Aliona and Cameron revealed how he wished he had kids earlier, how his parenting approach to his kids is more like a friend and how fatherhood has restricted him.
Wishing he had kids earlier, Peter Okoye said ‘‘I wish that I had my children earlier; I was with their mum for years before we got married. I even had them before we got married. If I had them a long time ago, we would relate more like siblings. If they were teenagers for instance, they would know that their dad is a celebrity and can learn certain things on their own.”
“I keep it young and fresh. People have turned parenting into something else just like marriage. I still live like a young boy; I don’t want to feel and act old. I want my kids to look up to me as role model. I am inspired by the footballer, David Beckham. I want my son to grow up to become my friend. That is why I said I wish I had my children earlier.” he said about his parenting style
Speaking on any restrictions which may have been caused as a result of parenthood, Mr P made sure to point out that he keeps showbiz apart from his family life.
“Everyone knows that I’m a crazy person on stage. I take off my shirt on stage and the fact that I am married with kids doesn’t change that. It’s called show bizness and that is what I do for a living. When I get on stage, I put aside every other thing and simply enjoy the show.”
