In the past, women could have kids as early as thirteen years. Girls were being married to men at only fifteen years. Once the white man invaded our land, everything changed. In the westernized world, it is not okay to have kids at a very tender age.
Nowadays, people focus on their careers, date for years, and by the time they are settling down, they are almost twenty-eight years of age.
Giving birth before you are old enough has become such a controversial topic because, in your early twenties, this is the time when you are building your future, you couldn’t have both. Here are a few celebrities who got pregnant and became parents at a very tender age.
Citizen News anchor Victoria Rubadiri got pregnant when she was eighteen years. The news anchor said she was still in school when she got pregnant and tried to juggle between school and taking care of her baby girl.
