Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, who welcomed her baby girl, Ryn Roberts in October last year, has spoken on giving birth out of wedlock.
The actress in an interview with BBC revealed that no matter what the society thinks about her having a baby out of wedlock, she remains happy as long as her family is happy with her.
The actress said: “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.”
Recall that the actress sometime ago came under criticism for having a baby out of wedlock.
Yvonne speaking further on how she felt when criticized added “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.
“At the end of the day if my mum, my family is happy with me, I am happy with myself, that’s it.”
