Tami shared:

I am in a committed relationship with a younger man who has never had children. In an effort to compromise for the benefit of our relationship, and because I am in love with this person, I decided to have a child with him and I am happy I made the decision to do so.

‘Marriage Bootcamp’ helped us a great deal in all aspects, especially communication. It showed us that we do love each other and are in it for the long haul.

I’m not going to act like I’m not afraid. Deciding to have a child at the age of 45 is very risky and when I first found out that I was definitely pregnant I went through a lot of emotions; fear, excitement, anxiety and stress. I find resolve in knowing that the person I am having this child with absolutely adores me and wants to build a family with me so I’m excited about the possibility of that.

I think all babies are miracles! As it pertains to Halle, I looked at her as inspiration and said she did it, Alyssa Milano did it, Gwen Stefani did it, Julianna Margolis did it… Why not me? People put more emphasis on my age when this is not new, other women have done it and received nothing but congratulations, [so] not sure why my announcement was viewed so negatively.

With that being said, congrats to Tammy Roman and her 28-year-old tenderoni, Reggie Youngblood. We wish her a happy and healthy pregnancy.


After people began to question Tami about her big baby bump at 7-8 weeks pregnant, she responded saying, “I’ve read the comments on this and this is why I don’t know why I announced and why I don’t like taking pictures.” She continued, “The negativity is overwhelming. Last week I was showing too, my clothes make a difference. I wanted to share, but I see that’s not possible. Just praying for a healthy baby and a stress free pregnancy.”

Tami has since removed the photo.
