The former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria and singer, Anna Banner who was later dumped by Flavour also said she never used her pregnancy to trap her baby’s daddy.
In an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats, she disclosed she was still in love with Flavour, even if he has yet to marry her after having a child for him.
Below are excerpts from Anna Banner’s interview:
On Getting Pregnant for Flavour
“I couldn’t have purposely got pregnant because I wanted to hook a star. I was already a star too. I wasn’t looking for fame; I was even running away from fame. But I got pregnant for somebody I really loved.”
On having a child out of wedlock
“It wasn’t planned. It was my mistake but I wouldn’t call my child a mistake. I was careless. But I thank God it happened with a man who I loved and who didn’t turn his back on me.”
Anna Banner on still being in love with Flavour
“When you love someone, it is hard to fall out. You cannot fall in love today and fall out of love tomorrow. Love is strong. Before you tell somebody you love him, you have to be sure. Flavour was the first man I fell in love with.”
She continued further:
“I still love him as the beautiful soul he has and as the father of my child. I don’t know what the future holds but we are just taking things one step at a time,” she said.
Recalling how she felt when she found out she was pregnant, the young lady said she was devastated.
In her words, she said:
“I was demoralised. I was finished! I was frustrated! My parents were disgusted at my sight. It was my cross, so I had to carry it.
I decided I was going to keep the baby even if I wasn’t married. It turned out to be the best decision I have made.
I am not saying it is good to get pregnant at a young age and have a baby but whatever choices you make, you need to know there are consequences and you have to get ready to face the consequences.
I was ready to face mine and I will not advise anybody to get pregnant at a young age. But if you get pregnant, abortion is not the next step.”
