Cynthia Bailey Says Her Mom Put Her On Birth Control As Soon As She Started Her Menstrual Cycle: I Would Have 3 Or 4 Kids Now
Cynthia Bailey is opening up about the importance of birth control to her, revealing that her mother put her on the pill when she was old enough to start her menstrual cycle.
She said while on Lady Parts show with Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland:
“[I] grew up in the South, my mom didn’t really talk to us a lot about sex. We didn’t have the bird and the bees talk. Literally once we were old enough to start our menstrual cycle, she put us on the pill.”
“It was like no real explanation. It was like ‘Oh you can have a baby now, so you take this every day.'”
She added that she was grateful for her mom’s action.
“I think it was her way of saying ‘I don’t want you guys to get pregnant.’ Had we not gotten on the pill, because we didn’t have a lot of information, I probably would have three or four kids now and my life would have been very different.”
She went on to say that much of her success is also connected to her mother:
“I’m just trying to live my best life and making up for the things my mom was not allowed to do. So, I kind of feel like I’m living a double life. I’m living for me, I’m living for her and in a lot of ways she’s living through me.”
She said ultimately, she wants her mom to think:
“Thank god I had you. What blessing you’ve been to my life.”
