Tami Roman Claims She Gave Her Husband Permission To Have A Baby With Another Woman

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 have 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.

Whew!

Tami's comments about allowing her husband to have a baby with another woman lit up Twitter.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

When I was a child, one of my favorite pastimes was theater. There was something so fulfilling about being on stage and connecting with the talented individuals breathing life into characters and stories. So naturally, I entered college as a theater major, hopeful of creating more of these moments; I ended up switching later on. However, the love for the craft never left, and my respect for actors only grew. And every now and then, I watch a movie or television show, come across a new actor, and think to myself, ‘Ooh, you can tell they’re for real about this.’ This background brings me to the present and our conversation with NAACP award-winning actress Gail Bean.
