The heartwarming story of Paul Okoye and his wife – How they met, age difference, their children and much more (PHOTOS)
Paul and Anita Okoye: Most people know Paul Okoye as a member of a famous duo P-Square or as a solo artist RudeBoy a.k.a. King Rudy. However, the fact that he is also a wonderful father and husband often escapes media’s attention. Therefore, today we are going to talk about Paul Okoye wife and his adorable children. Check it out!
The story of Paul Okoye and wife
Paul Okoye (born November 18, 1981) met his future wife Anita Isama (born November 8, 1988) all the way back in 2004, when he was attending the University of Abuja. Even despite a significant age difference (Anita was only 16, when Paul was already 23), the two hit it off right away and became close friends.
In two years, their friendship had grown into something more, so Paul and Anita started dating. In her interview to NAIJ, Anita recalled that she was head over heels in love with Paul and that she knew him better than she knew herself. Anita also said that his growing popularity never affected her much, and that she always just took him for who he was.
It has always appeared as if these two were just made for each other. They enjoy spending their free time together by going on bike rides, relishing in the outdoors, playing beach volleyball or even just watching TV. The only things they could never agree on, were interior design, style and fashion, but those were of minor importance.
All that said, the couple did not seem to think about tying the knot up until the birth of their first child. On April 11, 2013, Anita gave birth to their son Andre in Atlanta, Georgia. It was probably what influenced Paul to make a move and finally propose to her.
On March 22, 2014, Anita Isama officially became Anita Okoye. The two got traditionally married in Port Harcourt and legalised their union two years ago at the Ikoyi Registry.
You most likely know everything there is to know about Paul Okoye by now. However, you might not be aware of the fact that Anita is actually much more than just Paul Okoye’s wife. She has a degree in Law and an MBA, and she is an entrepreneur, author and philanthropist.
One of her ventures is called #TheCashewAppleProject, the goal of which is to uncover the hidden jewels of Africa. The project began with Anita’s book called The ABCs of Africa, which you can pre-order on Anita’s website (anitaokoye.com).
If you want to see what Paul and Anita are up to these days, you can follow them on Instagram (@rudeboypsquare and @anita_okoye respectively).
Now that we have talked so much about the happy couple, it only makes sense to talk about their beautiful children.
Paul Okoye children
As we have mentioned before, the couple had their first child back in 2013. Today, little Andre is not so little anymore, as he is already four years old. Time flies!
If his parents’ pictures or Instagram are anything to go by, both of them love Andre very much and try to give him all the best things he could ever dream of.
One thing they could not give him for quite some time was siblings. Anita once shared her despair, when she valiantly tried to conceive but could not. However, God smiled upon her, and 2017 became the year that the Okoye family got a little bigger.
On July 9, 2017, the world welcomed the two beautiful twins of Paul and Anita. They were born in a hospital abroad, but soon arrived to Nigeria to be properly introduced to their daddy and older brother. The twins are named Nadia and Nathan, and they are just the cutest babies in the world!
The two bundles of joy became famous even before they were born. Their mom (with the help of her friends) documented her journey of delivering the twins and shared it with her Instagram followers. In addition, the babies have their own hashtags and even an Instagram page!
You can often see posts of them or about them on their parents’ accounts with hashtags #doubledouble and #Nsquare. You can also check out their own Instagram account @nadiaandnathanokoye. It has not been updated much, but it still has almost two thousand followers.
These days, Paul and Anita have their hands full. After all, having two tiny babies and another one that is just slightly bigger is no small feat. Nevertheless, it looks like they are able to deal with everything almost effortlessly. Despite his music career, Paul Okoye always finds time to spend with his family and to help with kids and around the house.
All in all, Paul has been blessed with a beautiful caring wife and three adorable kids. In addition to being a talented musician, he is also a great father and a loving husband. We wish him and his family all the best, and may God watch over them.
