Odartey Lamptey’s mum warned him not to marry Gloria but he was in LOVE -{Check more details}

What would be your response if upon seeing someone you believe you so madly love as a guy and ready to settle with, but your mother urges you not to marry that person but rather find someone else?

That was the predicament of Nii Odartey Lamptey some 28 years ago at the zenith of his footballing career when he met Gloria Appiah, a gorgeous woman at his team training field in Europe.

Like many supporters, the gorgeous Gloria Appiah had come to observe the team’s training session when by some chance the two met— Odartey Lamptey fell in love!

The two were seeing one other often following that encounter and Gloria got pregnant.

The year was 1994 early January and by 28th May 1994, the two were married in a posh ceremony in Accra despite Odartey Lamptey’s mother’s continual caution and protest against the relationship.

Odartey Lamptey intended to marry Gloria before the pregnancy became visible but already his mother had been against his involvement with Gloria Appiah right from the day he introduced her to the family.

This is a truth Odartey Lamptey disclosed in a former interview himself.

With the pregnancy, which years later proved out not to be his, Odartey Lamptey stated he didn’t want to have a first child outside matrimony and despite all the reluctance and advice from his mother not to marry her, he married Gloria Appiah.

His mother was against the marriage because of the conditions he met Gloria, how fast she fell pregnant and “her own intuition as a mother who carried Nii for more than 9 months”, a family source suggested to MyNewsGh.com.

During his career as a soccer star, he played as a striker from 1990 until 2008 notably for Anderlecht, for Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven, Coventry City and the Ghana Black Stars with Gloria beside him for the best part of at least 15 years until the day DNA test exposed all three kids they had as not his.

The three kids, Latifah, Kadijah and Moesha Odartey Lamptey (now all adults) were proven not to be his offspring.

Recalling how his mother warned him over and over again about the girl he was seeing, Odartey Lamptey said he regretted not listening to his mother.

After having 3 children behind Odartey Lamptey and allowing him to take care of these kids without knowing he was not the father, the family was quite astonished to discover the same Gloria had brought the issue to court to collect 50 per cent of everything their son possessed after their divorce.
