Popular Nigerian actress Lizzy Anjorin is currently enjoying her status as a new mum after the arrival of her second child.
The actress recently welcomed her first child with her husband, Mr Lawal in Florida, USA.
The mother of two however spoke on issues surrounding motherhood and why it took her so long to have another child after her first.
In an interview with Punch, Lizzy spoke about how she got pregnant on her wedding night but was unaware of it until she was three months gone. The actress said she never planned for the pregnancy as she was taking precautions and that she and her husband had planned to opt for surrogacy.
She further addressed the issue of those saying she did in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) stating that if she truly did it, she would be open about it so as to encourage other women.
Speaking on her first child, Lizzy revealed that she could not raise the child herself due to poverty.
“My first child is 23 years old, and I can’t begin to say what I went through. All I can say is that poverty did not allow me to care for and stay with my child.”
She said it was her mother who helped her in raising her daughter so she could go back to school and also do some other things.
