Meet Judy Austin, Yul Edochie's second wife and an actress: How He Went From Her Movie Director to Husband

Judy Austin, a Nigerian actress, may not have been a household name in the past, but her romance with legendary actor Yul Edochie is set to catapult her into the spotlight.


On social media, Edochie has been known as the pinnacle of morals, and his latest announcement of Judy as his second wife has elicited conflicting emotions from his many admirers.

May Edochie, the actor’s first wife and mother of his four children, did not seem pleased with the news based on her social media reply.

Judy’s true name is Muoghalu Uchechukwu Judith, and she is from Umuoji in Anambra’s Idemilli North.

The actress, on the other hand, had no intention of becoming a filmmaker or appearing on television when she began her career. Judy stated in previous interviews that she had fantasized about becoming a model or a musician.

Despite having a good voice and producing her own songs, she noted that while the modeling component seemed to work for her, the music aspect never fully clicked.

Judy decided to give acting a try after meeting actor and film director Sylvester Mmadu in 2013. He handed her her first movie part in his film Secret of the Riches, according to her. Sylvester had used his camera to audition her after persuading her to try acting.

For the first time, Judy opted to direct and produce her own film, Native Girl. Edochie was the film’s director, and the actress clearly thought highly of him based on how she spoke about him in interviews.

She told Edochie about her intention to make a film, and he pushed her to find a decent story for them to work on. Judy hailed the actor as “one in a million” in an interview with The Sun.

Judy had previously stated that working with him on Native Girl was her most memorable moment as an actress because it was a difficult project.

Judy had previously stated that she did not consider marriage to be an accomplishment before becoming Mrs. Yul Edochie. She considers it a blessing to marry someone for love rather than for the sake of social media.

The actress has previously stated that she does not believe in bouncing from one man to the next since it is preferable to have only one and not give herself out to every man that comes her way.

As she puts it:

“I’m not a fan of bouncing from one man to the next. I’m a person who thrives in relationships. I feel that you should have someone, a man, with whom you do this, rather than giving it out to every male who crosses your path at the same moment. You do what you think is best for you. On the subject of relationships, I adore them since they are the foundation of my being. If a relationship doesn’t work out, you have the option of breaking up and getting hooked again, or you can take a break. Relationships aren’t just about sex or feelings. I enjoy having normal relationships with intelligent individuals from whom I can learn. As a result, any “relationship” with the appropriate person is a good idea.
