Actress Ireti Doyle opens up how her family reacted when she got pregnant at 17

Veteran Nollywood actress Ireti Doyle recently opened up on getting pregnant during her teens.

Mrs Doyle while speaking at Harvesters International Christian Centre, Gbagada, Lagos, revealed that her family members, including her mother, were hard on her when she got pregnant at the age of 17.
She told students, "You have to surround yourself with people who love and support you. I was blessed to have people around me; unfortunately these people are not family members. My mother didn’t take it lightly with me. I wouldn’t have handled it the way she did because I belong to a different generation. I was nurtured by people I met and they constantly reminded me that my life didn’t end with that bad situation.”
She added:
'I felt I still remained who I was. I came from a very good home, not by wealth but value. Education was not negotiable in my family. I didn’t want that one mistake to define who I was. But it was quite difficult for me because it was the talk of the town for quite a number of years'.


While admitting that the situation affected her hugely, she said that she chose her friends very carefully.

She urged young girls who have experienced similar situations to remember to keep their dreams alive and go back to school after having their babies. For her, it is not about how many mistakes you make or times you fell; it is about how many times you get up.
