Although the Benue state born actress have been ‘vomiting’ children more often than expected, she has not forgotten that her fans need to see her on-screen as much as her husband needs her at home to carter for their children.
After giving birth to three children in three years, it seems like the actress is pregnant with her fourth baby, as that is the latest rumor.
Normally, it is nobody’s business, but as a celebrity, fans are concerned about how she manages her family, multiple childbearing and her career as an ace actress in a country as demanding as Nigeria.
Recall that Mercy Johnson got married in 2011 to her Edo state Prince, Prince Odianosen Okojie, who has plans to contest for the deputy governor of Edo State.
Mercy Johnson and Family
In her early years of marriage, she took a brief break to give birth to her first two children, after which she came back to screen and joggled childbirth and acting. The fact that she still maintains her curvaceous body and looks prettier than ever, has made her fans love her more than ever. Just like Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who got married in 1996 and had all her four kids in six years, Mrs. Okojie is planning to do the same or similar.
In a recent interview, Mercy Johnson assures her fans that she knows just what she is doing as her life has already been planned from the onset. She talks about child spacing as well and how focused she wants to be with her career.
“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.
She also talked about her husband’s role in her life and how she adores her family and considers them as a major determinant in her decision-making.
Now isn’t this what a role model should be? Successful, career focused and family oriented? This is why fans just can’t stop loving the big bosomed, hourglass-shaped actress.
