Actress Sylvia Ukaatu has taken a swipe which she claims is a piece of advice at women who are in their late 30s to consider having a child if marriage is not approaching.
Slyvia says that is what she did six years ago and now she has a daughter she can gist and be with all the time.
Her advice follows after her daughter marked her 6th birthday. According to her, she was in a dire situation of keeping this child or getting rid of it because she was unmarried and friends advised her that having her would have a toll on her acting career.
Today, she says she can only be thankful that she decided to have the baby after all.
“6yrs ago, I fell pregnant with my damsel, and friends advised that I should get rid of her and move on with my career. I asked myself which career will be better than having a child that I can call mine. Then I decided to keep her. Now, she has grown to someone I can gist with. Someone that I would look at and never back down on my pursuit for greatness.”
Without mentioning names, she advised other ladies to muster the courage and have kids before hitting menopause even if it out of wedlock.
“If at 38, 39 and you are not married yet and you don’t have a child of your own, it is such a pity for you as a woman. Try as much as possible to be pregnant and have a child. Women don’t have time. At 35, some have already gone into Menopause.
“I do hear people say having a child or children outside wedlock is a sin. Don’t worry don’t be the judge. Those same people that you fear would mock you when you have kids out of wedlock would also be there to make jest of you when the days are dark.”
Sylvia Ukaatu in no way mentioned Rita Dominic’s name but she is 44 years old and has no child so…
