3 Sep – Jennylyn Mercado recently urged single mothers everywhere to remain strong against people critising them for their status.
As reported on Push, the actress posted her thoughts on Twitter by sharing such comment from an unknown netizen, and wrote, "To all the single moms out there, never let comments like this get to you. Having a kid early doesn't make you less of a woman. In fact it's the opposite."
"Being a single parent made us stronger than ever. It is difficult to be the mother and father of our child but we can do it," she added.
She also expressed her "sympathy" for those who despised people like her, as their criticisms could never bring her and other single mothers down.
"Whatever you say, you can and never will bring a strong woman down," she added.
Mercado has been a single mother since 2008, after giving birth to son Jazz with former boyfriend Patrick Garcia who is now already married to another.
