Actress Genevieve Nnaji said “getting pregnant at age 17 shocked me….”
Genevieve lost her virginity at 17 and got pregnant afterwards. The actress spoke on a topic she never talks about on her daughter who she had when she was a teenager. Genevieve talks of how her world came crashing when she discovered she was pregnant at the age of 17.
“The pregnancy was seven months gone before my Catholic mum discovered it. She couldn’t believe it,” she said.
How can she be pregnant when she was “very careful” according to her still remain a mystery to her till date. When a test confirmed it, her parents were disappointed but stood their ground against the abortion.
“I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t even know till I was about four months. It was there, but I was still in shock. I didn’t believe it”.“The only time I actually believed it was when I saw it in a scan. Seven months! And I saw it’s in there and I said, “Okay, it’s true!” I was like, “Oh, it’s like some disease….” I think I was pretty much hard on myself then than my parents or people. I was harder on myself, really. My parents reacted the way any parent would react – disappointed. I didn’t know. My mother discovered it for me. I didn’t know anything really. She discovered it.”
