Ghanian actress, Yvonne Nelson is not one to regret her actions especially having her daughter out of wedlock.
Yvonne Nelson who welcomed her baby girl, Ryn Roberts in October last year with her fiancée, Jamie Roberts in an interview said she does not regret giving birth to her daughter out of wedlock
The actress in a recent interview with BBC, Yvonne also mentioned the things that mattered most to her.
Yvonne says she believes the ideal thing to do is have her child in a marriage although she does not regret keeping her pregnancy and giving birth to her daughter.
‘I believe it’s the right thing to do. To get married, have kids, raise a family is ideal but I believe society puts a lot of pressure on women, young women in Africa especially.”
On how she felt when people criticised her after welcoming her daughter, Yvonne said
“I am a very positive person. I don’t let all the negativity and all the bad talks get to me. I was staying positive. I had loved ones around me plus I had this beautiful blessing in my arms. It was all joy for me. I wasn’t listening to all the negativity outside at all. It didn’t really affect me at all”
According to her, what matters most is that;
“At the end of the day if my mum, my family is happy with me, I am happy with myself, that’s it”.
She also granted an interview last year with WOW magazine and when asked whether her pregnancy was Planned, She said:
“It was, and the truth of the matter is, it’s been something I’ve been waiting for since I turned 29. On my 30th birthday, I was in Venice, Italy. I remember the night before my birthday, I called my mum and I was crying. I was so sad, I was seeing someone else then and he was an ideal guy and everything. He took me there for my birthday and he proposed.
He’s somebody I would have loved to have a family with but he wanted me to move to London. My whole life was going to change because of him and it’s not something you should do. You don’t have to change your whole life because of a man, because of your marriage. I’m sure most people do, so in the long run it didn’t work out.
It’s quite funny because someone proposed and I didn’t get to have a baby for the person, and this person who hasn’t proposed, I’m having a baby for him, so it’s a vibe, it’s friendship, it’s understanding, it’s how the person makes you (feel). It’s not about someone putting a rock on your finger and you forget.”
