The movie star revealed this in an interview with The Punch, adding that when he made the request people laughed and asked why he said such.
In response, Mr Ibu said he knows that he is not good looking hence the reason for wanting his child to look like his wife.
The father of three also revealed that he does not beat his kids whenever they do something wrong, rather he prefers scolding them.
When did you have your first child?
I had my first child in 1991.
When you held your child for the first time, what came to your mind at that moment?
What are the values you have instilled in yourself that have helped you as a dad?
First of all, you have to build confidence in yourself. You learn everyday as a father, and I never miss any opportunity to learn everyday and this makes me a better parent. I have people who learn from me and I teach them how to build a home even though I had some ups and downs in the course of trying to build a home. My first and second marriages failed; they (my wives) left me after having a child each for me. I wondered what made them make such decisions and they made me know that it was because I didn’t have money. This made me know that I have to be able to keep my family and provide for them and make sure that they are satisfied and not have any reason to look down on me.
Are any of your kids toeing your career path?
How do you discipline your kids?
I do not believe in beating children, I am not saying others who do it are wrong, but it is not my style. In disciplining my children, I have a different method, I rather speak to them, I caution them a lot and they can easily see that I am not pleased with whatever they might have done wrong, they realise their wrongs and apologise to me, and believe me, they mean it and do not repeat such.
