Actress Tonto Dikeh has once again wished herself a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ as the world marks World Fathers Day, June 21.
Every year, on Father’s Day, Tonto does not fail to remind everyone that she is not only a single mother, but also ‘plays the role of a father’ to her son, King Andre whom she had with her ex-husband, Churchill Olakunle.
Taking to her Instagram page, the actress wrote”
“Happy Fathers Day TO ME BECAUSE I’VE DONE IT ALL BY MYSELF AND ACED IT ANYWAYS.. Actions prove who someone is.. Words just prove who they want to be…DEAREST SON @kingandre_dikeh, BEING YOUR DAD HAS BEEN A GREAT HONOR..
THANKS FOR MAKING ME MR MOM
I LOVE YOU KIDDO
Her Ex-husband also wrote a post to mark the day. Taking his Instagram page, Olakunle Churchill prayed for children not be used as a tool of jealousy because of broken relationships. He also asserted his fatherhood, saying, “I Am A Father!!!”
”Happy Fathers’ Day to all the fathers in the world. A father is a father irrespective of marital challenges.
“A father is not only by way of giving birth to a child; but by way of taking caring of children around you, and children around the world who are in need.
“I pray for all the fathers in the world that your child/children will not be used as a tool of jealousy, because of broken relationships like it’s done in the old Era.
“As I celebrate this day, I pray this won’t be the era when single parenting ends up affecting a child/ children’s mentality thereby confusing them.
“This is a new Era and things have changed. Relax, you’ll reconnect with your child at the right time.
“You Are A father! We Are Fathers!! I Am A Father!!! Happy Father’s Day To You!”
