Leo Babarinde DaSilva, a Big Brother Naija contestant, has explained why he chose to keep his engagement a secret.
Remember how the realtor sparked questions about his marital status a few days prior when he tweeted about how he convinced his parents to approve of a low-key wedding?
Leo also mentioned in an interview that he fully believes in getting married before starting a family.
“I am engaged. I did not make it public because I will announce it when I am married. I did not see the need to announce what had not been formalized in God’s presence yet.”
When asked what he can’t do in a relationship, Leo said; “That would be having kids. I think it is just my preference. Some people prefer to do it that way too. I just prefer to do it when I get married.”
Leo added that he would not regret anything about bachelor living once he gets married.
Leo claimed that he could have married when he was much younger if his parents were still alive, but he put off all of that in order to get his life in order.
“I will not miss anything. As one gets older, one would understand how important it is for one to settle down. I would have settled down a lot earlier if my parents were not late. I just felt I needed to get things together, and I needed to make sure I was hundred per cent ready to delve into it,” he explained.
“The most important lesson I have learnt is patience. One cannot be with someone and not be patient with that person. We both come from different backgrounds with different upbringings and ways of life. The way we process things are different. Our emotional capacity would also be different. One needs to understand the other person’s differences. With patience and God being with someone, everything will be fine.”
