BN exclusively broke the news about Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson’s 3rd pregnancy (click here if you missed it) and they was backlash from a number of fans who questioned the spacing between her 2nd and 3rd pregnancy.
Well, in a recent interview with Goldmyne TV the movie star has responded to the criticism.
“I am expecting my third child and I’m a married person so I don’t think people should ask me why. I understand the ethics of spacing kids but I’m a married person and an adult, I can decide the way I want to live my life. So yes, I’m having my third baby really soon. Thank you so much for the good wishes, thank you so much for the hate speeches. Save some of the hate speeches because the fourth will soon come to round it up then you can show your anger but for now it’s good news let’s celebrate.”
Talking about the pregnancy affecting her career she said:
Actually it will affect your career. That’s the truth. It’s about sacrifice – scale of preference. Which is more important; that’s the one you do. As free as I was six years ago, five years ago, that’s not the way it is now. I now have responsibilities. I have kids to think of, I have my husband to think of so even when the jobs keep coming I can’t go all out to do them because I have other priorities.
