In Yvonne Nelson’s episode of E! VIP she discusses what it is like to be in the limelight whilst pregnant: ‘For someone like me being in the limelight, when I had a baby everyone was so nosey wanting to know who it was because I don’t put my relationships online so it was a shock to them that I was pregnant and it was like “who’s she pregnant with, who’s the dad?” and then a lot of controversial stories came out. The first few months when I had Ryn were really hard.’

Nelson also opens up about her ban from acting and how this pushed her to register her own company and go into producing: ‘How does anyone wake up and say they are banning a talent and not allow them to act, and do what they love for a whole year. It wasn’t such a nice place to find yourself. ‘I’m like Yvonne you can tell you own stories so why don’t you go for it, so that’s when I shot my first movie, The Price with Majid Mishel’
