Tiffany Haddish Reveals Adoption Is In Her Near Future

Our girl is gearing up to be a mommy!

Celebrity News

Tiffany Haddish is on a path. She's hustled for most of her 20's. She built a successful comedic career in her 30's. And now that she's hit her 40's, our girl is gearing up to be a mommy!

That's right, the actress exclusively revealed to E! News that she has taken a big step in her adoption journey. In an Interview with the Daily Pop, she tells host Justin Sylvester:

"I'm taking parenting classes now to adopt."

She continued:

"I'm looking at [ages] five and up, really like seven. I want them to be able to know how to use the restroom on their own and talk. I want them to know that I put in the work and I wanted them."

Haddish, who has been in a relationship with rapper Common, since early 2020, true to fashion, joked that she wasn't interested in having a baby with her bae until she was married, exclaiming, she's "not going to be the baby mama," but a wife. However, naturally having a baby seems unlikely to her at the time.

"Here's something everybody don't know, I'm going to tell you: when I was 21, I was really hard up with money and gave up a bunch of eggs. So who knows? I might got some kids out in these streets. I doubt it though because I never got the bonus."

Oh, Tiff.

This moment comes full circle, as just last year, after a frustrating year of continuous Black trauma, her sentiments were the opposite. During an appearance on Carmelo Anthony's weekly YouTube series, What's in Your Glass, Haddish discussed how racism has played into her fear of having children:

"I'm a little older now and people are always asking when I'm gonna have some babies? There's a part of me that would like to do that, and I always make up these excuses like, 'Oh, I need a million dollars in the bank before I do that, I need this, I need that.' But really, it's like, I would hate to give birth to someone that looks like me knowing that they're gonna be hunted or killed. Like, why would I put someone through that?"

Whew.

But the Grammy-winning, Kids Say the Darndest Things host, has since had a change of heart, thankfully, cementing the fact that if anyone deserves the love she has to offer, it is a child who comes from a seemingly hopeless situation--one she is all too familiar with.

We couldn't be any more excited to witness where her journey takes her from here!

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
