Actress Catherine Kamau Karanja has cautioned young girls against getting pregnant, saying that taking care of a child is not as easy, as many may think.
In an update seen by Pulse Live, Kate mentioned that young girls should not emulate other people (women) who probably fell pregnant at an early age and managed to sail through, as things might not be the same for them.
She also warned against the mentality of getting pregnant with the purpose of trapping a man in a relationship, as most of the time the trick doesn’t work.
Things are not easy
“Can we stop telling young girls …it’s oaky when they fall pregnant? Because it’s not! And it’s going to extremely hard. Just because the person you look up to made it doesn’t mean you will, we are different and we come from different backgrounds. Think about your parents who are scarifying everything for you. If you are already there, please learn from it and rest assured liufe will never be the same. It’s not about you anymore, that’s baby is your life now. If you are thinking about getting pregnant to keep a man who will disgrace you (I promise you) he will in a few months, please my dear Don’t. Please wait. It’s a beautiful thing when you just wait a little. Secure your future young queen. Aki sikizeni tu” said Kate Actress.
She added that; “This Teenage / Early pregnancy epidemic just breaks my heart... They have so many people to learn from, so much information, The DMs and messages just make me angry sometimes. What is to be done? Haven’t we told our stories enough! Do you agree with my post this morning . THE NARRATIVE HAS TO CHANGE ! ITS NOT OKAY YOUNG QUEEN! WAIT!!”
Her advice comes days after she opened on the struggles she went through in the quest to have a baby with her hubby Phillip Karanja.
"I remember I really wanted one even before our wedding, I was in a rush to get one but being the planner he is we delayed mpaka I was like me I’m good. Now the trying period is something else and I’m the most impatient person so I kept on wondering, so kukurukakara zikihappen ndiyo huyo mimi kesho nishapima. And kept on getting disappointed to a point I was feeling like, I don’t want to try any more. When you really want one that’s when it doesn’t happen and I went to the doctor, I didn’t have a problem it was just anxiety” said Catherine Kamau.
