Nollywood actress, Christabel Egbenya, has advised women to open up to their partners if they cheat and fell pregnant outside their matrimonial home.
The married mother of one in an interview with Saturday Beats added that having a paternity test is not always because one does not trust one’s partner. She noted that some children had been swapped in the hospital.

Urging women to always be honest in their relationships, Egbenya said, *
“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 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.”
