After reading this post, you will notice that most of the people mentioned above gave birth before they rose to stardom. What I am trying to say is that they still chase their goals after giving birth early. It is natural for girls to make the mistake of getting pregnant early, although not advisable and good for that to happen but it happens often and it is no longer a new thing. These days early pregnancy means the end of some girl's dream, as they tend to give up on anything called plan or career. To all ladies that are already with a baby, note that a child should never be seen as an embarrassment and they deserve all possible love and attention. If you had given up before, you still have enough time to revive your dream, and trust me you can achieve it if you work hard with faith.
