Leading Lady: Essence Atkins Bares Baby Bump, Talks Marriage & More


Check out an excerpt from her interview below:
I put myself in the frame of mind where I wasn’t going to waste any more time. I met my husband at 36; a lot of people have questioned it like, “she’s so desperate.” I didn’t want to waste any more time. After 35, I felt like I’d been in these relationships, some were great, some weren’t so great, but they weren’t right partnerships. So I did this inventory, I’m not going to just settle for anyone, and at this point I don’t have anymore time to waste if I wanted to have children.”
Looks like her plan worked! Be sure to check out the rest of Essence.com’s interview with Atkins here.
