Much loved Nigerian celebrity couple, Akah and Claire Nnani, have shared a part of their enviable relationship that people do not get to see every day.
In the video that has since gone viral on social media, the couple showed themselves having a conversation as they tried to understand each other regarding breastfeeding their child and what they could do to make it better.
Akah was of the opinion that his wife had to increase her breast milk supply so that she could pump and store enough that can last for a year to feed their child.
Claire on the other hand was of the opinion that her priority was to make sure their daughter got enough breast milk for the day so that she could know that her supply had increased.
According to her, she was having issues producing breast milk and her husband’s manner of telling her that she was not pumping enough was insensitive because she was the one doing it and feeling the pains alone.
Akah also explained that his concerns about her storing milk was to protect her from when the child starts growing teeth and biting the mum while feeding.
Eventually, they seemed to reach a resolution and understood better what the other was saying.
The couple explained in the caption of the post that communication is key in a marriage.
Part of the caption reads:
“Guys, when they say "communication is key in marriage" it is no joke cos, when one person says a thing, the other person hears another.
"It's a real thing that men don't like to talk or express their feelings but over the last year plus, I have painstakingly learnt and practiced talking and sharing my feelings, no matter how much it hurts me or the other person.
"We tend to bottle it up especially if we are not sure of how the other person will take it. But with what I've learnt? I've learnt to just say it! My brothers, it seems simple but e no easy oh.
"Men are usually more logical and goal oriented in responding to life and in conversation but that's not always the best way to respond because we are dealing with humans with real feelings and emotions and situations.”
