Popular actress Toyin Abraham-Ajeyemi has opened up to Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on recently losing a pregnancy.
On the latest episode of ‘Rubbin Minds’ with the BBNaija Host, the movie star stated though she has a son and a step-daughter, she still desires to have one or two more kids.
She explained that she cried a lot after losing her pregnancy as she was in great pain coupled with people who kept questioning when she would have another child.
She also noted to add salt to her injury, people body-shamed her at the time, claiming she was fat without realising that she just lost a pregnancy which left her looking bloated.
The filmmaker said: “They always want you to have a child, obviously yes! I have a stepdaughter and a son. So they keep asking, “When are you going to have another one, When are you going to give birth?”
“It’s not always easy… When the time is right, the pregnancy will stay.”
When asked if she plans to have more children, Toyin Abraham replied: “Yes, I was actually pregnant recently. I lost it, but it’s fine. You know, most times they don’t always know what we are going through.
“When it happened, I cried. I just wanted to have one or two more children and I will be done. Things happened, I was so bloated and everyone kept battering me! Saying, ‘Look at you! You are too fat! Look at your husband! He is young’.
“But they don’t understand, so when they say all these things, guess what, I’m used to it. As an actress, you just have to, or else you’d fall into depression.
“Once I see it and if I am not okay with the comments and you keep going, I will just block you. I don’t have time for negative energy.”
