Tami Roman has decided to join other celebrities in doing an Instagram Q and A via the ‘Stories’ feature. After the “Basketball Wives” star posted a photo of herself that had followers wondering if she was expecting, the VH1 personality answered their burning inquiry once and for all.
A fan sent in the straightforward question: “Are you pregnant?”
The reality star answered with a regretful: “I wish!!!”
Roman has opened up with her struggle of trying to successfully carry a baby full-term for her and her future husband, Reggie Youngblood. The couple has suffered from multiple miscarriages.
Tami admits that the reason that they’ve tried so many times is that she wants to give her boyfriend who is over 15 years her junior a child or she worries that he won’t be happy with her anymore.
“I’ve miscarried three times,” she explained in an interview.

I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE! I Detox, suppress my appetite and make better food choices. So enjoy yourself laughing, leaving negative comments & calling me a “crackhead”…but I have two beautiful daughters and I’m gon’ live for them by ANY means necessary. ? #BeBlessed #HealthyForMe FIT: @fashionnova #fashionnova
While visiting The Doctors, Roman stated: “I love Reggie today, I’ll love him 20 years from today. But my love for him wants him to be happy and if we can’t have a child, I don’t think he’ll be happy somewhere down the road and so I would have to let him go.”
Not only is it extremely difficult for a 48-year-old woman to get pregnant but Tami is a diabetic and longtime smoker.
In fact, her recent weight loss that had many fans talking is due to the “Bonnet Chronicles” host attempting to keep her health in check.
After body shamers continuously critiqued her new appearance on her social media profile, Roman uploaded a photo alongside a caption that read: “I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE! I Detox, suppress my appetite and make better food choices. So enjoy yourself laughing, leaving negative comments & calling me a “crackhead”…but I have two beautiful daughters and I’m gon’ live for them by ANY means necessary.”
Do you think that Tami is going to continue to try for a third child? Do you think the couple will stay together if she doesn’t?
