Egypt Was Reluctant to Have Kids | Black Love | Oprah Winfrey Network


We got married
September of 2010. I did not know if I was
ready to have a child ever. I didn’t– I mean, I watched
my sister give birth, and it scared the devil out of me. And so– [LAUGHING] Yeah– I think that’s why I waited
so long to become a mom. But, um, we definitely–
if we were going to do it, it wasn’t going to happen
any time soon, right? Right. Well, April of 2011– we hadn’t even been
married a whole year– I found out I was pregnant.
– Yeah. He looked at me. He– it was the last thing
he expected me to say. I said, you’re going
to want to sit down. I’m pregnant Yeah. And do the face. [LAUGHING] See, but, the thing is– the thing is that she
was so focused on career, so I was in baby
mode to an extent. So for me, it wasn’t
that she was pregnant. It was the fact of, but
you don’t even want a baby. How is this going to work?

  1. How old was she? Only asking because ppl put a time stamp on when women should have children. I’m 33 and don’t have children. And the question do you have kids gets on my nerves. But beautiful couple and many blessings to them.

  2. It's don't bother me If the woman doesn't wants kids i see many men an woman putting pressure on people with that

  3. So they weren't using birth control?

    This kind of sounds like dude was blaming her for getting pregnant. Married men should be prepared for this possibility … heck,
    all sexually active heterosexual men should but particularly a heterosexual married men.

  4. Is this black love series going to actually feature black couples?
    Because all I'm seeing from the last 8 videos is biracial women with black men.

  5. Jesus. Me nowadays are in baby mode more than women and that’s scary asf. I’ve heard a guy say “a woman’s purpose is to make babies”. I asked “how kids does he have with his wife”? He replied “he’s not married and have 3 and a possible”. I asked “are you on child support”? He replied “yes”. I walked away 🤨🤨🤨
