Many times on social media, stories make the rounds of wicked stepmothers or fathers who go all out to frustrate the other children of their partners.
The Nigerian film industry also did not help matters by focusing most of their stories on this ill, with only a few of them telling positive stories about the relationships stepmothers have with their stepchildren.
It is now more popular for a man to marry just one woman but this has not stopped men with kids from their previous unions from getting married.
As a result, there are a number of young ladies who find themselves being stepmothers to their husband’s other children, including celebrities.
Legit.ng has decided to shine the spotlight on some Nigerian celebrities who have good and enviable relationships with their stepchildren.
