Talented Ghanaian actress and film producer, Yvonne Nelson has finally spoken on how society 'pushed her around' to get married at age 29.
According to Yvonne, growing up as a kid, she looked up to her mother, who gave birth at very early age compared to her.
Speaking to Zylofon FM in Accra, the actress admitted that she was fully aware pressure was bound to happen from society on women at certain age to marry, especially in the Ghanaian culture.
The beautiful actress mentioned that although she wanted to have her own kids at early age, she was still not married at age 29.
“It’s fate and can happen to someone at 25 but mine happened to me when I turned 29. I felt like this is the time for me to have kids and I need to start,” the actress said.
She added that, “Of course my mum is my role model, she had kids when she was young. Yes you will feel a little pressure as a woman but not to force someone to marry you. Someone proposed and I didn’t even marry him. I felt like okay this is the right guy I can start something with”.
The award-winning Ghanaian actress in October last year gave birth to her first child after several contradictory media reports about her pregnancy.
The actress who earlier denied several media reports about her pregnancy, months later gave birth at a private hospital in Accra.
Yvonne Nelson gave birth to a baby girl with her British fashion Photographer boyfriend who is based in London.
Though the actress has been widely criticized for giving birth out of wedlock, she has brushed the comments off and is excited about her new journey of being a mother.
