Peter Okoye has shared some enlightening information about his family and parenting of his two kids, Cameron and Aliona.
The singer disclosed during a recent interview with The Punch, that he wished he had his kids earlier than he did.
The 34-year-old father who is one of the duo sensation, P Square, also revealed that he takes the approach of a young man when handling his kids.
Speaking during the interview, Peter said:
“I wish that I had my children earlier; I was with their mum for years before we got married. I even had them before we got married. If I had them a long time ago, we would relate more like siblings. If they were teenagers for instance, they would know that their dad is a celebrity and can learn certain things on their own.”
When asked about his style of parenting, Peter said:
“I keep it young and fresh. People have turned parenting into something else just like marriage. I still live like a young boy; I don’t want to feel and act old. I want my kids to look up to me as a role model. I am inspired by the footballer, David Beckham. I want my son to grow up to become my friend. That is why I said I wish I had my children earlier.”
Speaking on any restrictions which may have been caused as a result of parenthood, Peter made sure to point out that he keeps showbiz apart from his family life.
“Everyone knows that I’m a crazy person on stage. I take off my shirt on stage and the fact that I am married with kids doesn’t change that. It’s called show bizness and that is what I do for a living. When I get on stage, I put aside every other thing and simply enjoy the show.”
We all agreed a long time ago that Peter is one proud and committed dad and that has not changed in anyway, as these photos prove.
