Comedienne and actress Helen Paul revealed in an interview with The Sun, how she met her husband, Femi. She tells of the quite intriguing and humble saga of their first major personal encounter.
She said, “I met him through my boss where I was formerly working. He was a friend to my boss. While he always saw me as too playful and jumpy, I saw him as too stingy. Those days when my boss’ colleagues came visiting, they always reached out to us when leaving. They gave us money which we used to buy doughnuts and soft drinks but my husband never gave us anything.“
Helen decided to confront him about it. “I summoned courage and as he was leaving, I told him, ‘Sir, you don’t buy us anything any time you come but we really like you. If you can be buying us doughnuts and soft drinks, we would be very grateful.’ He started laughing, so I quickly added, ‘Sir, it’s not only me o. My colleagues are also involved, so please don’t tell our boss’,” the TV personality said.
She continued, “He never failed to deliver whenever he showed up and we never stopped thanking him. And then one day, he took a good look at me and said ‘baby, I love you’ and the rest is history.“
That’s how the funny star got hooked to lucky Femi. The pair have three kids.
