I won’t marry again once I have a baby outside marriage – Mercy Eke (Video)

Written by fazazy39

Big Brother Naija reality star and brand influencer, Mercy Eke, has shared that she wouldn’t consider getting married if she had a child out of wedlock.

Mercy, often referred to as Mercy Lambo, expressed how her mother had been pressuring her about marriage and that she had even contemplated having a child through surrogacy. In an interview with Hero Daniels, she explained that she had considered the idea of using her eggs, a sperm donor, and a surrogate to have a child to appease her mother’s wishes for her to get married.

She said, “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.”

Mercy humorously mentioned her mother’s constant attendance at traditional weddings and how she was being pressured to have her own. She added, “You know, when you have gone to one thousand traditional weddings, they are now asking, ‘When is your daughter doing her own?’ I said, ‘Mummy, nobody should pressure me!'”

“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.”
