In a recent interview, reality TV star Mercy Eke shared that she is ready for marriage and does not want to be a "baby mama."
The former Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate stated that her Christian faith is an important part of her identity, and that it is a factor in her decision to get married rather than have a child out of wedlock.
Mercy Eke has previously spoken about her faith on social media, posting on her Instagram stories about attending church services and praying.
Mercy said, “I don’t want to be a baby mama. At this point, I’m ready to settle down and have a family.
I’m ready to have my own kids. If I wanted to be a baby mama, I would have been one, but no disrespect to ‘baby mamas’, but I would rather be married first because I’m from a Christian home.”
She added: “In as much as you want to be a boss lady, we just need that care, that somebody who just wakes up and checks on you. Someone who will be by your side and just do little things for you.
“Yeah, husband dey hungry me but I feel like I’m much more ready to have a little one.”
