WHILE it is the desire of many women to have children after marriage, singer Noella Wiyaala, who has been married for the past four years says having children is not her priority.
Speaking on the Delay Show on Sunday, February 25, Wiyaala said, “I am not yearning for children at all. I have been married for four years and having children is the least of my worries.
"Children are not like teddy bears you can play with and throw away when you are tired of them, they become part of you. I need to think through before making that decision.”
Asked if her husband is in support of her decision, Wiyaala said he is an understanding man who always wants her to have her way.
“I have discussed with my husband about children and he says he is in support of anything I want. If I want children fine and if I don’t he is cool with it.
“Maybe my mother is the reason I might have a child because I know she loves children and she would love for me to have one,” she said.

Away from childbirth, Wiyaala, who doesn't wear a ring said she does not need to wear it for people to know that she is married.
According to the 32-year old singer, once her husband is cool with her not wearing a ring, she doesn’t really care what anyone says.
“I have an understanding man who doesn’t care about what people say about me but always makes sure I am happy. We understand each other and I believe that is the reason we flow,” she said.
Wiyaala also disclosed that there were only four people at her wedding. Explaining how it happened, she said her husband proposed out of the blue and requested that they get married on the same day.
According to her, she was casually dressed but the man, who she did not name, said they could still marry and he wasn't bothered.
“The day he proposed was the day we got married. It was only my mother, father, and an uncle who were around at that time.
"As for my husband, he doesn’t care too much about crowd and necessarily inviting his family so we got married, when I was even in slippers,” Wiyaala disclosed.
Some people have suggested that the Rock My Body singer is not beautiful but Wiyaala said she is used to such comment and doesn't care.
“I am used to this girl is not beautiful and I am not bothered anymore. Back in the days I was just worried and will beat you if you say such things to me but growing up I realised it is not necessary.
“This is my look and there is nothing anyone can say for me to change that. I love myself and everything about me,” she stated.
Wiyalaa is known for songs like Make Me Dance, Sun and Moon, Siiko, Bunsun, Africa, Leno, Village Sex, Tuma, Angel, Got The Power among others.
