Big Brother Naija Season 4 winner, Mercy Eke, has revealed that her mum attempted to get rid of the pregnancy that produced her.
The reality star disclosed this in a recent chat with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
She said one of her aunties advised her mother to get rid of the pregnancy because she already had five children.
Eke said, “When she [my mother] was pregnant, there is this aunty of mine…She [my mother] has already had five children then this last one which is me. She has four girls and one boy. So, when that my aunty came, she was like, ‘Ah! Emilia, is this another pregnancy? With all these children you’ve dumped here.’
“So, that thing messed with her [my mother] mental health. It really messed with her that she wanted to like get me out then. She was going to the farm, she would climb something you would fall so that I will go but me I stubborn na. I no go anywhere. I dey gidigba.
“Yeah, it was a true story. She wanted to get me off.”
The 32-year-old said her mum told her the story recently.
She said, “One day, she [my mother] was like she wish that person was alive to see what that girl that she wanted to abort that time has grown to become. Yeah, that was how she told me the story.
“She is happy with me. She is happy that she didn’t remove me or abort me. She is happy that I didn’t die. And she is happy she gave birth to me like she took that risk even without anything. Because now, my mother is one of the happiest people. My mother is just sleeping. She is enjoying life. She wake up, eat what she wants to eat. So, now she is happy.”
