LUPITA Nyong’o is not sure if she would want to raise her family in Kenya or America but will wait until she meets the right man before worrying about the decision.
The ’12 Years a Slave’ actress who has been single since splitting from rapper K’naan last year has fond memories of her childhood in Kenya, but also loves her life in New York.
“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,” she said.
However, the 32 year old star won’t worry about making that decision until she finds the person she wants to have children with.
“But I think that will all be determined when I have that moment. When I have that man,” she added.
For the time being, Lupita is content with her low-key life in Brooklyn.
“I live alone there. I lie quite low. I take the subway. I do yoga. I meditate. I definitely feel there’s a lot of America in me,” she said.
“The idea that you can be self-made is very vibrant in America. You can do anything that you want to do. That spirit pushes you on. But it took me leaving Kenya to really appreciate the glory of the place. Ultimately, I will always be a child of Kenya,” she added.
