Nollywood actress Monalisa Stephen was under fire on social after she openly said that that she does not intend to get married and have kids.
According to her, she does not want to have children because there are a lot of children out there who deserve to be in good families.
So, my decision not to have my own kids is due to myÂ experienceÂ and the fact that there are millions of kids out there who deserve to be in a good family , who need to experience genuine family love and care. And I will not hesitate to give that chance to 2 kids , help them educationally, mentally andÂ spiritually with the help and grace of God,â said Monalisa.
She further stated that people should not mistaken her decision for hatred for children because she loves children very much but circumstances have made her to make such decison.
âI love children a lot. When I was a teenager I would volunteer to go Care Homes and work since I donât have money to give them and till now I still do it. Not to blow my trumpet or anything I just love caring for children and I know how it feels not to have parents. I lost my dad when I was one and my mum some few years ago and itâs still affecting me.” she said.
She then added that people should not think that it is abnormal not to have your own flesh and blood.
âMost people think itâs abnormal not to have your own flesh and blood and they think I took this decision because of my pastÂ relationship/heartbreak. Even someone personally chatted me and said she hopes I will find time to heal from what I am going through, blah blah, but this is a decision I took when I was 15, even though I am in my 20s but I relate well with older people and they thought me a lot of good things which changed my approach to life decisions and situations,âÂ she said.
