I can become a babymama because things are changing – 46 year old Bimbo Akintola
The veteran actress made the disclosure in an interview with Tunde Ajaja. When asked if she could consider having a child out of wedlock, she said: “Of course, I can. Definitely I can do it because I don’t see anything wrong with it.
Things are changing in the world at large. If you look around, you would find a lot of women are having babies and taking care of themselves. It’s everywhere.
There are women who are not actors but are single mothers, and for a lot of people I think it’s about their biological clock. Instead of waiting for manna from heaven and you know there is no manna, and you feel the need to have children, then do it.”
On whether she’d be bothered that people would feel she’s incomplete without a man, she said: “We have to change our thinking, due to the time. You can’t be rooted in the past when the present and future are a totally different place.
If you look at what is going on now, there are women looking for husband but can’t find. So would you now say because of that they shouldn’t have children? That’s unnecessary and it’s like making them suffer twice.
I think for anybody that wants to have children, as long as you know you are capable of taking care of them financially and emotionally, why not.”
