Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, may have been criticized for rushing her child birth without observing child spacing but she does not care about how people perceive her.
The actress believes it’s her life and she has to run it the way she wants without allowing people’s opinion affect her.
Mercy speaking about having her fourth child soon stated that it has been the way she has designed her life before she became famous and will like to keep to that.
She explained that she got married at the time she had gotten to the peak of her career and when it came she grabbed it because age was not on her side.
In her words, “I feel that when you haven’t gone through life and you don’t have a bearing in life, that’s when you see certain decisions as unreasonable. Most of these people who make these statements have not even realised what they want to do with their lives yet.
“I had planned my life right from when I was growing up. I arranged my life the way I wanted it to go. And that is why even when I was at the peak of my career and marriage came, I grabbed it because I know age keeps going and time waits for no one.
“It means that I can have all of my four kids and then still get back to shape and come back to what I love to do. So I am not going to say things like, ‘I don’t want to have kids yet’ or ‘I am not going to get married and I want to keep acting because the young shall always grow’, you are not going to be number one forever. That is why when it is time for you to do something, you do it. Yoruba will always say in their prayers that when the time for a child to talk has come, by the grace of God, she will talk. When it’s time to go to school, he will go to school. That’s what I’m trying to do. I want to define my life in a way my daughter will want to define her own life,” she said.
