Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has disclosed the reasons behind her choice to not have children with her second spouse, Kazim Adeoti.
After ending her seven-year marriage with ex-husband Lanre Gentry, Mercy Aigbe remarried to Kazim Adeoti.
In a recent interview with The Nation, she candidly explains her decision to refrain from having children with her current husband.
During the interview, Mercy Aigbe was first asked “Let’s talk about motherhood with a teenager and a young adult, how has it been?”
MERCY AIGBE: “So, my daughter is so grown, she’s an adult now and you know she has been far away in Canada studying and at times when I look at her, I wonder aloud saying so, this is my daughter who is all grown up and it feels like I am getting old. To me, aging is a blessing but I want to be a baby girl for life so when I look at her, she reminds me that I am no longer a baby anymore.
Another thing is before when she did something wrong, I would shout at her, but now, I can’t shout at her because I remind myself that she’s now an adult, we have to dialogue and I would rather give her that liberty to make some decisions herself so I don’t influence all her decisions, I just have to be there to guide her and make sure she doesn’t make mistakes although mistakes are allowed if it’s not too much, it’s fine because you learn from it. And for my son, he’s also a big boy now and we give God the glory.
Then she was asked, “Are you still going to have more kids considering your young marriage?”
MERCY AIGBE: “You know someone asked if I was going to have another child and I am like no, maybe I would adopt but for now, I don’t know and we are good and to God be the glory.”
