T.I. and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle are expecting a new baby, and making the most of plugging the new season of their reality show as well.
“It’s going to add to a house of madness,” Tiny, 40, tells People. “A new baby, that's something we haven’t had in seven years."
"It’s going to be a little chaotic.”
Her husband, 35, adds, “It’s definitely going to stink the house up a little bit! But in the end, all additions make the family closer and better.”
This will be third child together and seventh addition to their blended family, which they consider all one family and for good reason.
The Atlanta-based couple, whose series T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle returns to VH1 later this year, still have a few months to go.
“I haven’t had any morning sickness, and the baby’s been moving a lot,” the Xscape singer says. “I’m having a good second trimester.”
Tiny announced her pregnancy in an Instagram video, thanking God (and perhaps T.I.) for providing "our new heir to the throne."
True to form, T.I. is already in hype mode: “The baby’s dropping a mix tape February 14 called ‘For the Love of Everybody.'”
“It was recorded from the belly. Y’all gonna need some special headphones, which we will also provide. You all can look forward to that!”
We're not entirely sure if he's kidding.
In all seriousness, he says their focus is on “staying together, staying friends, being understanding of one another and continuing to care.”
Their secret to a loving home life and thriving marriage, he says, is putting family first. Words of simple, yet profound wisdom from ... T.I.?
