“If you are a woman and you think you are getting to a certain age and you want to have kids and you meet a responsible guy who hasn’t yet proposed but wants same thing, it depends on you and him. You can go ahead and do it if you think the guy is right and responsible and he makes you happy, Why not?” Those were the words of Yvonne Nelson in an interview with WOW magazine.
She said she has been hoping to get pregnant since she turned 29 years and recalls how she cried her eyes out during her birthday then because she was still single and had no baby.
Speaking on whether the pregnancy was all planned out, she said It was, and the truth of the matter is, it’s been something I’ve been waiting for since I turned 29. On my 30th birthday, I was in Venice, Italy. I remember the night before my birthday, I called my mum and I was crying. I was so sad, I was seeing someone else then and he was an ideal guy and everything. He took me there for my birthday and he proposed.
He is somebody I would have loved to have a family with but he wanted me to move to London. 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 your marriage. I’m sure most people do, so in the long run it didn’t work out.
It’s quite funny because someone proposed and I didn’t get to have a baby for the person, and this person who hasn’t proposed, I’m having a baby for him, so it’s a vibe, it’s friendship, it’s understanding, it’s how the person makes you (feel). It’s not about someone putting a rock on your finger and you forget.’
When asked of her reaction when she knew she was pregnant, Yvonne said
‘’I wasn’t sure but I suspected I was. I was in London at the time with my man. I was so ready; I knew this was what I wanted at this moment in my life. I pray to God all the time and I tell him that I want to start a family and have kids of my own, It was part of my
prayers so I just knew that I’m not married but this is what I want to
do. So when I did a test and it came out positive, I was truly happy.
‘’But the hard part was having to tell my mum, I waited for my mum ,
she had just returned from a trip, I remember telling her I was
pregnant and she was so shocked and her first words were but you are
not married and I replied her back yes mum I know and then it was a
long conversation but right now she is just so happy and so am I.’’
Revealing details about the “Soon-to-be-father”, she said he’s British, has been a father before and is super lucky to become one again.
According to her, they both have an understanding, a vibe and friendship but no marriage plans yet.
