“As much as we talk about love, we mean fancy things, I like it. You know how I get when you want to go out and go on a date; it’s not like you’re doing anything for me.
“I want you around the house. You’re usually at the bottom monopolizing the TV, and I’m at the top. But knowing you’re down in that house gives me peace,” he said.
The actor explained why he made the decision to marry his fiancée.

“Baby, I’ll hold your hand even when we fight. I love you. I wasn’t a Film Lord when you met me. But you looked at me and said you were born a star. Keep acting, and keep doing your thing.
“Today, I am a national treasure, but when I look at my side, you must be that woman next to me. You are my everything, and I am happy to call you Mrs. Leonard,” she added.
The actor confirmed his words when he met Frederick, that he was not the Film Lord everyone knows him to be.
He also had a message for those who say he’s lucky, noting that he’s been through a lot.

“I saw a man who was ready to earn money. I saw a man who was not a woman, most importantly. That’s why I stayed for a long time.
“So to all the ladies out there, if you have a guy you like. You love him, but he has no money; please stop Listen to him. cheer up That’s what I’ve done all these years. I got to a point where I thought Frederick would marry me. I am like Frederick; I’m a nice girl; you are wasting your time,” he added.
