In a lengthy live session on her Instagram page yesterday, the thespian and mother of five boys opened up on motherhood, depression and other topics.

On how she battled depression due to her failed marriage, she said; “Anytime i was alone in my room, i’d always say to myself ”Iyabo Ojo, you’ve failed, you are ugly, how can you have a child and you’d be this skinny, before you had a child you were thick.

“Now you need to lighten up your skin and even if you have a tattoo you are still ugly because no one is going to marry you, no one is going to accept you. Your mom had a failed marriage and you also have a failed marriage”

She added that in between her sad moments, she would receive a call and try to sound happy over the phone but as soon as the call drops, she’d fall back into overthinking her situation.

However, she said in all these, she didn’t want love from nobody and even people who wanted to show her love, she’d push away.

According to her, she drew strength from her kids. She said she was happy seeing them and she vowed to give them the world.
