Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson has revealed that she hurried to have her kids after marriage because time was not on her side as she was aging.
The actress has been criticised by many for rushing her child birth without enough spacing between them but Mercy believes it’s her life and she has to run it the way she wants without allowing people’s opinion affect her.
The mother of three who is considering baby number 4 soon said she had a life plan before fame and she is sticking to it.
“I had planned my life right from when I was growing up. I arranged my life the way I wanted it to go. And that is why even when I was at the peak of my career and marriage came, I grabbed it because I know age keeps going and time waits for no one,” she said
Mercy added: “It means that I can have all of my four kids and then still get back to shape and come back to what I love to do. So I am not going to say things like, ‘I don’t want to have kids yet’ or ‘I am not going to get married and I want to keep acting because the young shall always grow’, you are not going to be number one forever.”
Mercy got married to Prince Okojie in 2011 amidst several controversies but has been able to keep the marriage alive despite all negative speculations. The couple has three children now; 2 girls and a boy.
