Award winning Ghanaian actress and movie producer, Yvonne Nelson has opened up on motherhood and her readiness to be a mother in an exclusive interview with Akwesi Aboagye of Accra based Peace Fm on Saturday.
In the said interview, Yvonne Nelson disclosed that she was ready to be a mother and didn’t have her child by accident. “I was ready for motherhood. It wasn’t an accident so I was ready.”
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, she told Akwesi Aboagye, the host of Entertainment Review how challenging motherhood is and how much she has come to appreciate her mother for being a mother to her and her two other siblings. “Motherhood is challenging, but I enjoy it. I always tell my mum she’s done a good job. I haven’t gotten anywhere in terms of motherhood but the little I’ve seen, it makes motherhood a full time job.”
Hitting on whether or not she intended to be a mother, she disclosed that it wasn’t a part of her plans but it happened. “I didn’t plan to be a mother but as a woman, you reach a certain age and you realize that you have to start a family.” She further spoke about her daughter and how she got her name RYN. She added that she gave her the name and had nothing wrong with doing that. “Her name is RYN. Her father is Robert and I am Yvonne Nelson, so I coiled the name from the initials. I don’t think it’s a big deal to give my child a name”.
The actress again visited the issue of whether she strongly desired to give birth with a white man and whether she believes in racial marriages. She said she didn’t look at skin colour and loved her baby daddy not for his skin colour and race. “I don’t look at race. I met him and fell in love with him. He’s an amazing guy and loves his kids”.
Yvonne Nelson was in the studious of Peace Fm to promote her upcoming movie, SIN CITY. Touching on the story line of the movie, she said it was about a couple and their get- away fun which didn’t go too well and asked people to come watch the movie. “SIN CITY is about a lawyer who wasn’t getting time for his wife so they decided to go on a trip out of town to have fun. That is where they got to a cub called sin city. I want my fans to come and watch the movie on the 14th of this month”.
Yvonne addressed the issue of fusing Nigerians in Ghanaian movies and said she feels it’s a smart thing to do to enable her projects sell in the country. “In most of my movies I feature Nigerians. We work hand in hand. You will want to premiere in their cinemas too. They will accept the movies when it gets there but you will need some of them to promote it. If you make it all Ghanaian, you limit your expectations”.
She disclosed that she has a surprise for men on that day at the premiere. “I need roses on the red carpet and a date for the premiere. The men should come with their roses.”
