Their union, however, provoked mixed reactions from curious social media users considering Ben is a Christian and his wife Amina a Muslim.

Addressing the issue, the TV presenter made it clear he would do anything to protect his family should anyone cross their line.

“To those who are not so welcoming, we forgive you… you have a constitutional right to your opinion… however, should any of you cross the line against the law – as I said, I ‘ll protect my family with my all,” he said.
