Nollywood actress, Christabel Egbenya, has advised women to open up to their husbands about an extramarital affair as some men might be comfortable with the situation.
Naija News reports that the Christabel in an interview with PUNCH said there is nothing wrong in having a paternity test because it is not always based on infidelity.
According to the actress, there are some instances where some children had been swapped in the hospital.
She added that women should be honest in their relationship and if pregnancy occurs as a result of an extramarital affair, the woman should open up to the man if she feels the need to talk to her husband about it.
In her words: “I don’t see anything wrong with conducting a paternity test. It is not always because the person suspects infidelity. There have been instances where children were changed and given to different parents at the hospital.
“If you did something (extramarital affair) outside and got pregnant, and you feel you need to open up to your husband, go ahead and talk to him. There are some men that might be comfortable with such a situation, and won’t mind the woman keeping the child. It is wrong to hide such information from one’s partner.
“If the man wants to undertake the raising of the child; that is fine. After all, men go outside their marriages to have kids, and come back to plead with their wives.”
