Celebrated Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson has disclosed how she was pushed by society to hastily get married at age twenty-nine (29).
The movie producer for the TV series dubbed: ‘Heels and Sneakers’ acknowledged that pressure from society on a woman at a certain age to marry especially in the Ghanaian culture is bound to happen.
According to Nelson, she looked up to her mother who had kids at a young age so at age 29 she also desired to have kids though she was unmarried.
“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. 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,” Nelson told Blakk Rasta on Zylofon FM.
The award winning actress and Movie Producer gave birth to her first child on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at a Hospital in Accra.
Nelson gave birth to a girl with her Fashion Photographer boyfriend by her side.
Her boyfriend, who is based in London flew into Ghana on Saturday to witness the birth of his daughter.
The ‘Heels and Sneakers‘ actress and people close to her were tight-lipped about the pregnancy. They’ve also stayed away from congratulating on the birth of her daughter on Social Media, which is usually the case.
In July 2017, this website reported that several persons on the set of season three of her Television series Heels and Sneakers, told us that she was careful not to show signs of her pregnancy or engage in activities that could affect her unborn child.
She was however excited about the new journey of being a mother.
