How Many Kids Does Bernice Burgos Have?
Bernice Burgos is an American social media star and model. She is of Puerto Rican descent and was born in the Bronx, New York City on 17 April 1980. Bernice did not have a supportive family as a child, her father left when she was young and her mother got married to Peter Baggio. Bernice became a mother at the age of 15 to her first daughter named Ashley. Her partner at that time was not supportive of Bernice’s pregnancy and she also was embarrassed about being pregnant at a young age but she decided to have the baby.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Bernice said that she had to rush into being a mother because of her pregnancy at a young age. People used to say things like ‘Oh my God! A baby having a baby.’ Which made her feel like at 15 she will have to act like a 30-year-old. That pregnancy changed her life, Bernice’s grandmother disowned her and kicked her out of the house and she must live with her boyfriend’s mom doing chores because she was unable to pay rent. That burden also affected her studies and Bernice had to drop out of school. She is now a mother of two daughters, the youngest is named Sarai who was born in 2006.
