BBNaija All Stars 1st Runner-up, Mercy Eke expresses that she may never consider the idea of getting married as she hopes to either buy a child or get pregnant outside of wedlock.
These thoughts were shared by the BBNaija All Stars ex-housemate during a recent interview with the media personality, Hero Daniels.
Mery Eke revealed that she is currently pressured by her mother and societal factors also make it hard for her as regards the concept of marriage.
Adding to her point, the BBNaija Lockdown winner mentioned that she had previously considered the option of having a baby through surrogacy but would prefer to get pregnant out of wedlock.
Mercy Eke on why she may never get married
“I had said that I was gonna buy a baby. Not like buying a baby. Just get someone, take my eggs, get someone to be a sperm donor, hire a surrogate, and have a beautiful baby.”
“That is what I was thinking because [of] my mum and her village people. She’s always going from one traditional wedding to another. You know, when you had gone to one thousand traditional weddings, they are now asking, ‘When is your daughter doing her own?’ I said, ‘Mummy, nobody should pressure me o!’
“So, I was like I could just have a baby. Happiness is happiness anywhere you find it. If you wanna give birth, you wanna get it elsewhere. That’s why I love Westerners. They just do what they like. Unlike where people would want you to be a certain way. But right now, I love that people, especially women, are doing what they like, however they deem fit.
“Now, that marriage sef. It’s like I go just carry belle, born, and rest. And, once I have a baby outside of marriage, I am not getting married again. Because the kind of love I will give to that baby, I will not love any man again. All my love, I will give it to my baby. So, I’ve only one relationship left in me.”
