Actress Essence Atkins has been glowing lately and its not because of a new skincare product. The beautiful Vixen is happily married to husband Jaime Mendez, enjoying a booming acting career and is expecting a new addition to her family. The 39 year-old star of “Are We There Yet?” sat down with Essence.com and dished on the milestone year she’s been having and how she found her man on an online dating site.
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.
