Mercy Johnson has set the records straight about her marriage: she begs her husband each time they have wrinkles in their relationship because she is not ready to let him go.
The actress said this in a recent chat with Punch, and this comes months after she scrubbed her Instagram clean of her family pictures, stirring speculation that her marriage hit the rocks.
On how she feels about the breakup rumours, she said: “I did not feel bad when I read the news that my marriage was hitting the rocks because it was not true. I am very comfortable in my own space and I am not out to please anybody. I am always true to myself and I continue to be a happy person.”
About deleting the personal photos and the rumour it stirred , she said: “There was absolutely no problem between my husband and me, I only deleted the old pictures on my Instagram page. They were old so I deleted them to post new ones. I am not letting my husband go; even when he is angry, I would beg him. You see these beautiful rings that he has given to me, I am never returning them.”
Asked if she will have another child, the mum of three said: “I am going to have another baby very soon. I am obsessed with children and while growing up, I had always wanted to have four children, so we have to complete the equation.”
And how her career affects her marriage, she said: “It has not been easy combining my roles as an actress, representative of Kogi State, a mother and a wife but I describe myself as a home girl and everything has always been about a system of priority for me. So God comes first, my family and then work; God and my family have to be settled before we can talk about work because when I am not happy at home, I cannot function in whatever capacity I ought to function, so I have always followed my priorities. As I speak with you, if I get a call from my kids’ school and they inform me that something happened, I would leave everything I am doing and rush there.”
