Doyle of today is a successful, happily married actress. Little is known of what she faced growing up as a young woman. Her recent revelation suggests she has had her fair share of downs in life.
NAIJ.com earlier reported how much Ireti Doyle made from her movie in one year.
Speaking of life as a pregnant 17-year-old she said: "You have to surround yourself with people who love and support you. I was blessed to have people around me; unfortunately these people are not family members. My mother didn’t take it lightly with me. I wouldn’t have handled it the way she did because I belong to a different generation. I was nurtured by people I met and they constantly reminded me that my life didn’t end with that bad situation.”
As she spoke about her past at Harvesters International Christian Centre in Lagos she mentioned how the event weighed her down but she still prevailed.
She said: "I felt I still remained who I was. I came from a very good home, not by wealth but value. Education was not negotiable in my family. I didn’t want that one mistake to define who I was. But it was quite difficult for me because it was the talk of the town for quite a number of years."
