Kenyan Oscar winner speaks on family pressure to marry

Lupita spoke in a recent interview on the pressure she gets from home


Kenyan Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong'o has disclosed that she too is under silent pressure to start a family. She says like many women in their 30s, her mum is already giving hints.

In a recent interview with Vogue, the 32-year old has revealed she hasn't found that man she wants to have kids with at the moment.

“This is my conundrum. When I was back in Kenya this past week, I would be driving along with my mother and she would say, ‘That’s a nice school for children’ and look at me like (raising eyebrows). My mom wants me to have children now. But I think that will all be determined when I have that moment. When I have that man.”

Lupita broke up with rapper K'naan in 2014 and hasn't to be seriously dating since then.
