Some of us have always maintained that a child is a wholesome blessing whether out of wedlock or otherwise and no one has the propriety or whatsoever to ridicule anyone who decided to keep their baby. Baby mamas are often seen as disappointments and a deviation in society although in recent times it has almost become fashionable.
Radio and media personality Caroline Sampson is herself a mother of one and the father of her son has remained unknown. Caroline says people should stop it with the backlashes and indiscriminate ridiculing of baby mamas because they have done nothing wrong. According to Caro, having a child out of wedlock is not a death sentence.
“I used to worry a lot when I was called names because those commenting did not know the real story as to how I had my child. And it is hurtful for someone to say very bad things about you when you know very well what is being said about you is not the truth.
“I know some people talk loosely because they see one or two baby mummies doing just anything to take care of themselves and their baby but if you are not in their shoes, you cannot tell them how to walk. Everyone has their hustle so people should not attack us because we have kids. Having a child out of wedlock is not the end of the world and we are not lesser women.”
“What about those in the church always praying to God to have babies? It’s quite unfortunate some of the men who impregnate the women have children elsewhere, but they don’t call them born-one.
“There are a lot of single mothers out there who are making it big time on their own to cater to their children. Not all baby mummies are lazy and do anything for money,” she said.
