It’s no longer news that Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson is expecting her third child. After the news broke many of her fans have castigated her saying she is not observing proper child spacing.
Mercy, in a new interview with Goldmyne TV, has replied those attacking her saying she is old enough to decide on what is good for her. In her words:
"I am expecting my third child and I'm a married person so I don't think people should ask me why. I understand the ethics of spacing kids but I’m a married person and an adult, I can decide the way I want to live my life. So yes, I’m having my third baby really soon. Thank you so much for the good wishes, thank you so much for the hate speeches. Save some of the hate speeches because the fourth will soon come to round it up then you can show your anger but for now it's good news let's celebrate.
"Actually it will affect your career. That's the truth. It's about sacrifice – scale of preference. Which is more important; that's the one you do. As free as I was six years ago, five years ago, that's not the way it is now. I now have responsibilities. I have kids to think of, I have my husband to think of so even when the jobs keep coming I can't go all out to do them because I have other priorities".
Meanwhile, the beautiful actress turned thirty one August 28th and had a private celebration with her husband and their two kids at their Lagos home.
