Academy Awards winning, Mexican-Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o revealed that she is under her mother's pressure to get married and have children.
The 32 years old actress known for her role as Patsey in 12 Years A Slave which earned her the Supporting Actress award at 86th Academy Awards, said that a few weeks ago when she was in Kenya, her mother had in a subtle way hinted that it was time she had grandkids. “I would be driving along with my mother and she would say, ‘That’s a nice school for children’ and look at me like” Lupita said in interview with Vogue when she made the second cover for the Magazine
In her full words, Lupita Nyong’o said that it’s not the right time yet, as she not yet found the right man to settle with. “This is my conundrum. When I was back in Kenya this past week, I would be driving along with my mother and she would say, ‘That’s a nice school for children’ and look at me like” My mom wants me to have children now. But I think that will all be determined when I have that moment. When I have that man.”
Lupita Nyong’o was reported to be in relationships. The recent is Somali rapper K’naan who was spotted with her a lot of time, but other reports said that they broke up. Common and Jared Leto are other men who were rumored to be with her.
But this is not surprising for me, as we are in Africa where parents are made proud by carrying their grandkids in their arms.
