The couple, who recently got engaged, had their traditional wedding in Warri, Delta State on the 19th of November in a star stud ceremony. During the ceremony, Peggy gave a powerful speech reaffirming her love and submission to her husband she said “I get on his nerve and he thinks I’m taking him for granted, baby I am just a woman, we can be silly sometimes but I love you, I will respect you. 

“You would always be the crown on my head; you would be the man I ask for decisions before I make them. To everybody you have fought my case for; I will fight your case for you. Thank you for waking up in the morning and saying let’s pray, Fredrick as much as you look good, you make me want to love God more, Freddie doesn’t stop praying..”

The beautiful actress went on to state that she met Frederick when he had nothing but she knew he was going to become somebody and that was why she waited this long for him.

She sent a message to all the ladies out there, urging that they should learn to be patient with their broke boyfriends because they would eventually make it. 

Before now, the duo has had an on-and-off thing going, leaving fans guessing about the actual state of things. Their relationship dates back to 2015 when Frederick confirmed they were dating.

However, in 2017, Ms. Ovire denied romantic affiliation with the actor. In an interview, the former beauty queen said that Mr. Leonard is her friend who encourages her.

“In the entertainment industry, it is tough to find someone that would look out for and advise you. He does all that for other people in the industry and me, like my brother. Contrary to what was reported, I have never been married, and I have never even introduced any man to my dad. I am still single.”

However, in October 2022, the couple confirmed they were in a relationship after Leonard took to his Instagram page to celebrate Peggy on her birthday.
