Following the report of her childbirth, she was slammed by many for having a baby out of wedlock.

In a recent interview with BBC that was aired on Thursday, Nelson said she does not regret giving birth to her bundle of joy out of wedlock.

The first time mum further revealed that although she believes the best thing to do is have her child in marriage, she does not regret keeping her pregnancy.

”I believe it’s the right thing to do. To get married, have kids, raise a family is ideal but I believe society puts a lot of pressure on women, young women in Africa especially.”

On how she felt when people criticised her after welcoming her daughter, Yvonne said;

”I am a very positive person. I don’t let all the negativity and all the bad talks get to me. I was staying positive. I had loved ones around me plus I had this beautiful blessing in my arms.

It was all joy for me. I wasn’t listening to all the negativity outside at all. It didn’t really affect me at all”

According to her, what matters most is that; ”At the end of the day if my mum, my family is happy with me, I am happy with myself, that’s it.”

You will recall that during an interview with WOW magazine last year (read here), when Yvonne Nelson was asked whether her pregnancy was Planned, she said;

”It was, and the truth of the matter is, it’s been something I’ve been waiting for since I turned 29. On my 30th birthday, I was in Venice, Italy.

I remember the night before my birthday, I called my mum and I was crying. I was so sad, I was seeing someone else then and he was an ideal guy and everything. He took me there for my birthday and he proposed.

He’s somebody I would have loved to have a family with but he wanted me to move to London. My whole life was going to change because of him and it’s not something you should do.

You don’t have to change your whole life because of a man, because of your marriage. I’m sure most people do, so in the long run it didn’t work out.

It’s quite funny because someone proposed and I didn’t get to have a baby for the person, and this person who hasn’t proposed, I’m having a baby for him, so it’s a vibe, it’s friendship, it’s understanding, it’s how the person makes you (feel). It’s not about someone putting a rock on your finger and you forget.”
