3rd Pregnancy In 3 Years! Mercy Johnson Blasts Fans For Criticizing Her


By Ayeotan Shola

The news of Notable actress, Mercy Johnson‘s third pregnancy in 3 years seems to have drawn a lot of backlash and criticisms from a section of her fans.

Mercy who got married in 2011 to Prince Odianosen Okojie, is already the mother of two children – a boy and a girl.

Her first child, Purity Ozioma Okojie, aged 2 years was welcomed in December, 2012 while her second child, Henry Ozioma Okojie was welcomed last year on October 15, 2014.

Reasons cited by her concerned fans for their backlash is none other than the closeness between births and the short age differences between her children.

Mercy Johnson has however responded to all the brouhaha been caused by the the news of her recent pregnancy.

During  a recent interview with Goldmyne TV the movie star responded, stating;

“I am expecting my third child and I’m a married person so I don’t think people should ask me why. I understand the ethics of spacing kids but I’m a married person and an adult, I can decide the way I want to live my life. So yes, I’m having my third baby really soon. Thank you so much for the good wishes, thank you so much for the hate speeches. Save some of the hate speeches because the fourth will soon come to round it up then you can show your anger but for now it’s good news let’s celebrate.”

Talking about the pregnancy affecting her career she said:

Actually it will affect your career. That’s the truth. It’s about sacrifice – scale of preference. Which is more important; that’s the one you do. As free as I was six years ago, five years ago, that’s not the way it is now. I now have responsibilities. I have kids to think of, I have my husband to think of so even when the jobs keep coming I can’t go all out to do them because I have other priorities.
