Nollywood actress, Christabel Egbenya, has refuted claims that she welcomed a child with actor, Yul Edochie.
The new mum, during an Instagram live session, addressed claims that she welcomed her newborn child with the movie director.
Although it’s unclear why the actress is being linked to the actor, Egbenya clarified that she’s not Yul’s second wife, as some viral reports alleged. She revealed her husband is Mark Onumajuru and the baby is their first child together.
“I’m not Yul’s second wife ooo, na my pikin I born oo, this is my husbands first child oo, not Yul Edochie’s own, Biko my husband is Mark Onumajuru”. She said.

Meanwhile, actor Tchidi Chikere has congratulated Yul Edochie for picking a second wife and he used the opportunity to reveal how his marriage to actress Nuella Njubigbo ended after seven years.
“Yul.. Yuletide ODOGWU!! Most of the men and women criticising you are WORSE in private. This world is full of hypocrites,” he wrote in the comment section.
Tchidi’s congratulatory post got the attention of some Nigerians who attacked him for supporting Yul. They also attacked him for not being able to remain married for a long time as opposed to Yul Edochie who was married to his wife for 17 years until he took another wife.
Responding, Tchidi said he has gotten married twice and that his first marriage to actress Sophia, lasted for 11 years, while the second, which was to Nuella, ended after seven years. According to him, Nuella took her things and sneaked out of his house. He said one day he might share his own side of what happened.
