She is a divorcee 

Bernice is a divorcee. Together, they welcomed their seven children, 6 boys and a girl. Jeremie was the fifth born among their seven kids. 

The family initially stayed in a cramped three-bedroom flat. 

Jeremie started playing football at an early age but she and her then-husband didn't take it too seriously because they were doing two jobs and couldn't afford all the transportation as well and she was more concerned about his career. 

Bernice and her then-husband parted ways when Jeremie was just six years old after which she became a single mom.

The sacrifices she made for her kids

Jeremie credits his success to Bernice because of the sacrifices she made throughout his football journey. 

Following her separation from her then-husband, Bernice moved to the UK with her kids thinking about their better education and future. 

When Jeremie joined Manchester United's youth academy at the age of nine, Bernice took extra jobs in her job as a cleaner. 

She would accompany him to the training taking three bus rides and would return to pick him up after finishing her job.

Her elder son Jeffrey told Athletic that as a single mom raising six at the time, she started doing more hours at her job because she wanted them to be happy.

She used to lure her son with incentives to push him for better

In an interview with Athletic, Jeremie's older brother Jeffrey shared how he and his mom used to lure Jeremie to play better. 

According to him, he would tell his brother that he and his mom would get him PS3 if he scored certain amounts of goals. 

He was telling him for around four months, that he would score a hat-trick in every game. 

He went on scoring and it eventually became a habit and he no longer had to tell him to do anything.

Jeremie said his brother quit the job for him so he can't let his family down.
