Besides her flourishing career in the film industry, let’s take a look at the facts you need to know about her marriage and her four daughters.
Who Is Uche Nancy’s Husband
Uche Nancy was once a married woman but is now divorced. According to records, she got married to a man known as Mr. Nnebe at the very young age of 16. Nothing is known about Uche Nancy’s marital life with her ex-husband or the man’s identity, but the marriage is said to be short-lived.
The union hit the rocks when her children were all still very tender. Hence, she trained all of them singlehandedly. The actress has never spoken about what led to the end of her marriage, so it remains under wraps. However, some speculations had it that the fact that she married at that young age, considered too early, could have contributed to the crash of the union.
Meanwhile, while speaking with Sun News Online, one of her daughters, Sonia Uche, stated that growing up wasn’t pleasant for her, given that she came from a broken home.
