Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson has some advice for couples. In an exclusive interview with Wow magazine, the 32-year-old new mom talked her pregnancy, love life and how her mother reacted when she informed her about her pregnancy.
Yvonne opened up about praying for the ideal man and how she had to let go.
Read an excerpt from the interview below:
“On my 30th birthday, I was in Venice, Italy. I was seeing someone else then and he was my ideal guy and everything. He took me there for my birthday and he proposed, looking up in the clear blue sky almost shy but I didn’t post online. I’m one of those people that would make a lot of noise on stuff like this”.
She began to caress her bump. “He is somebody I would love to have a family with but then he wanted me to move to London”. Rolling her eyes, “My whole life was going to change because of him and it’s not something you should do, you don’t have to change your whole life because of a man because of marriage.
I am sure people do, so in the long run if it didn’t work out and although I had been praying for a man like that, I had nothing I was doing in the UK, so I decided that I just had to chill, maybe see what the future holds and keep praying for someone else to come around.
Then she starts laughing so hard, it’s quite funny because someone proposed and I didn’t even get to have a baby for the person then this person who hasn’t proposed I’m having a baby for him, so it’s a vibe, friendship, its understanding, its how the person makes you happy, it’s not someone putting a rock on your finger and you forget”.
The award-winning actress welcomed her first child on baby girl at a health facility in Accra on Sunday, October 29, 2017.
