Actress Yvonne Nelson has revealed that a telecommunication company dropped her from being its ambassador just because she was pregnant.
The actress has therefore narrated how she was broken and hurt as she was just about three months away from delivering her baby who she later named Ryn.
Before she was stripped of the deal, Yvonne said she was due to shoot an ad for the telco company hence was disappointed when she was stripped of the deal.
Yvonne’s story follows a CNN report of a female member of Kenya’s Parliament, Zuleikha Hassan, being removed from the parliamentary chamber after walking into the chamber with a five-month-old baby.
She said the situation nearly broke her down but pushed on to become a good mother.
She posted –

Guess what, the lady who called didn’t even say congrats she said ‘sorry yvonne, the dynamics will change’ i was hurt! I was broken! All these and more made me stronger!! IM PROUD TO BE A MOTHER!!!!
