Actress Lilian Esoro and her estranged husband, Ubi Franklin stepped out with their son, Jayden for the first birthday party of Prince Chimeguzola Arthur-Paul Anyaso son of Billionaire businessman, Chima Anyaso, and wife, Ada.
It looks like the estranged couple may be reuniting in a way as they have been co-parenting their son Jayden well.
When Ubi Franklin celebrated his birthday a few days ago, Lilian took to Instagram to wish the father of her child a happy birthday in her own ‘unique way’. She shared a photo of him on her Instalive came with this caption;
‘Happy birthday guy. More blessings’
According to online reports, Ubi had an affair while engaged to Lilian Esoro. The affair led to the birth of his daughter with his US-based babymama, and Ubi Franklin allegedly concealed the entire incident from Lilian; only to reveal it to her after their marriage – this allegedly led to their marriage break down.
Also, a filmmaker and close friend to Lilian Esoro, who pleaded anonymity sometime in 2016 revealed what led to Ubi Franklin’s failed marriage to the actress.
According to the source, the Popular TV series actress always complained about how distanced her husband was.
“He never showed up in any of her filming locations and this was often a thing of worry for Lilian,” he said.
Other reports claimed infidelity and physical abuse as other reasons their wedding packed up 4 months ago, immediately their son Jayden was born.
And it was also reported once that Lilian wanted to marry another Nollywood actor who is now married, but opted for Ubi who was a backup plan from the start. And their marriage is said to be loveless from the beginning.
Another claim alleged that Ubi Franklin wasn’t even plan B as she has always been the girlfriend of a very successful comedian. However, Entertainment commentators say Lilian Esoro said no when Ubi initially proposed but he did all he can to convince her including her family as he was overly generous to them.
