Tami Roman visited The Real to talk about her return to the popular reality TV series The Real World and she also updated the co-hosts about her surrogacy plans.
The former Basketball Wives reality star is married to Reginald "Reggie" Youngblood and while she shares two daughters, Jazz and Lyric Anderson, with her ex-husband, Kenny Anderson, Reggie doesn't have any children.
Last year, Tami disclosed that she and Reggie were open to trying surrogacy after the actress experienced three miscarriages. Tami is 17 years older than Reggie and has had health issues, including diabetes, that has affected her ability to carry babies to term.
However, in the Nov. 17 episode of The Real, Tami announced that the surrogacy plans have been put "on pause." "I feel like I'm at a point where my career is starting to do and reward me for all of my efforts in the time that I've been in the business, and a baby for me right now would just not be the thing to do," Roman explained.
But just because she isn't ready to have a baby right now, that doesn't mean she wanted to stop her husband from having one.
"So what I offered him was an opportunity for us to take a break for a year or two. Let him go find someone to have a child with and when he has his baby we can get back together," she said.
Leaving The Real co-hosts astounded, she continued that she would be open to help raise the baby, but that her decision had more to do with him. "It's really more about him being able to have his legacy here because he's an only child and he does not have any children. So, it's really more for him than it is for me," she revealed.
However, Reggie rejected the idea of having a baby with another woman. "He said, 'I don't want that. I fell in love with you. You're the woman that I'm going to spend the rest of my life with, and if God put me here and I'm not supposed to have children then that's what it is,'" she said.
Tami's comments about allowing her husband to have a baby with another woman lit up Twitter.
Not Tami Roman saying she'd lend her nigga out so he can have a baby😭😭😭???? Its so many other options— The Great Negro (@jiggyjayy2) November 18, 2021
What might seem outrageous to some women could also be acceptable to others. I personally would never give my spouse permission to step outside our marriage to procreate with another woman. If Tami is ok with it then so be it.— CadillacContessa (@TruthContessa) November 18, 2021
