Prior to his wedding last year, numerous stories came out about everybody’s favourite ‘playboy’ John Dumelo and how he had dumped one lady he was dating for another lady he had allegedly impregnated.
Everything was eventually borne out as the truth as Dumelo got married to Mawuenya, the lady he had impregnated who to nobody’s surprise gave birth just a few months after marriage. Dumelo also reportedly dumped his then-girlfriend, a lady known as Frances who also happened to be a cousin to actor James Gardiner.
Dumelo himself has not spoken out about these issues but appearing on ‘Dining with Cooks and Braggarts’ with Yvonne Okoro alongside his bestie, Yvonne Nelson, Dumelo opened up finally about the chaos surrounding his relationship at the time and his eventual marriage.
Dumelo admitted that he was dating Frances, Gardiner’s cousin for a while before meeting Gifty Mawuenya, who was also dating at the time.
Dumelo said things did not work out well between him and Frances and that led to him dating Mawuenya.
The actor, who joked when a fan asked him a while ago how his wife gave birth so early after marriage that he used ‘double track‘, finally admitted on the show that their pregnancy wasn’t planned and that it really took them by surprise.
Numerous reports stated their marriage had to be fast-tracked after Mawuenya became pregnant and John all but confirmed it that in his appearance on Okoro’s show.
