- Actress Lizzy Anjorin said she got pregnant on her wedding night
- The new mother revealed that she was raised in poverty and also her first child
- Lizzy claimed the fear of poverty made her not have another child earlier than when she did recently
Nollywood actress, Lizzy Anjorin, is still in the celebratory mood after the arrival of her second child.
Legit.ng had earlier reported earlier that the actress welcomed her first child for her husband, who she fondly calls Mr Lawal, in Florida, US.
In a recent interview with Punch, Lizzy spoke about how she got pregnant on her wedding night but she was unaware of it until she was three months gone. The actress said she never planned for the pregnancy as she was taking precautions and that she and her husband had planned to opt for surrogacy.
The actress seized the opportunity to address those saying she did in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). She said she would have bold come open about it so as to encourage other women.
Lizzy noted that many people did not consider her age and health as when she gave birth to her baby. She noted that the age of a 25-year-old struggling woman cannot be the same as that of a 50-year-old lady as it will be a struggle for the older mother than the younger one.
She also narrated how she had her first child who she could not raise herself due to poverty.
“My first child is 23 years old, and I can’t begin to say what I went through. All I can say is that poverty did not allow me to care for and stay with my child."
Speaking further she said it was her mother who helped her in raising her daughter so she could go back to school and also do some other things.
The actress also spoke about raising children while poor as she was raised as one. She noted that despite being an only child of her mum, she could not be raised in affluence because her mother was poor and could not feed her well nor gave her sound education.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Lizzy Anjorin shared a video showing her adorable daughter in a white outfit. The new mother wore a sunshade for the little girl, who was sleeping in an open cot, before recording her. In the caption that accompanied the post, the actress celebrated all mothers over the world.
The actress then went on to share the names of her beautiful princess. Lizzy and her husband gave their daughter 13 names. The Yoruba film star told her fans and followers to give her an additional ten names.
