“People go blind in youth and love”
Nina Gupta also said, “At that time, everyone was giving me the same advice about how you’re going to raise the child alone, whose name you’re going to name. By this time, Vivian Richards was already married. I couldn’t drop everything and go to Antigua to be with him. What happens when you’re young, you’re blind, when you’re in love, you don’t listen to anyone. No child even listens to their parents at that age… That was my situation.”
