Talented Kenyan actress Catherine Kamau commonly known as Kate Actress has sent a word of advice to single mothers advising them not to be desperate.
One of her fans asked her how she was able to deal with being mother and whether she thought she would ever get married when she was a single mother.
The fan asked “Did it ever cross your mind that you might never find you a man as a single mother mom? If yes, how did you deal with it?”
To which Kate responded;
“I honestly wasn’t looking for a man because my heart was shattered then. I had committed myself to giving my son the best. Men can smell desperation miles away. They also notice a focused, ambitious woman especially one who loves her child unconditionally. I am talking about a real man here of course. The way you carry and value yourself as a single mother will determine the kind of man you will unconsciously attract.”
In a past interview Kate narrated that being a single mom was never easy, and even got rejected by her family after getting pregnant.
“My parents rejected me at first because they felt like I had brought shamed to them before the entire community.”
