Nollywood and Ghallywood actress, Yvonne Nelson, who has been under a lot of pressure and backlash from fans for birthing a child before getting married, has come out to make it known to the public that she will do everything it takes to make sure her daughter is safe, and her image kept intact.
The actress endured intense controversy for getting pregnant for her UK photographer boyfriend, Jamie Roberts, and eventually giving birth to a baby girl.
Many social media commentators and some mainstream media commentators questioned the rationale behind her decision to give birth before getting married and why she chose her photographer boyfriend.
She stated, however, that she will not take it lightly with people who try to involve her daughter in those stories.
“I don’t really care about negative stories. I think I’m used to it. People just want to sell their newspapers and whatever, so you just leave them but if you talk about my baby, I will come for you.”
She narrated an instance where she took on someone – whose identity she did not to disclose – for making some “unpleasant” comments about her baby.
“Like the recent one that happened: I don’t want to mention his name but he was talking about the baby,” she told the ladies.
“He kept making very weird comments about her and the last one I just felt it was too much so my lawyer wrote to him and he retracted and apologized.”
She explained that the name of her daughter is a combination of the initials of her boyfriend and her own names – Robert and Yvonne Nelson (RYN) – and that she wants her daughter to have her parents’ names with her wherever she goes.
