It's an exciting time for Tami Roman who is expecting her third child with boyfriend Reggie Youngblood, but the pregnancy has admittedly been a bit of a stress considering her age.
In a recent interview with Necole Bitchie, the 45-year-old television personality spoke about being filled with fear and anxiety while being with child at such a "late" stage. Still, Roman remains confident that everything will turn out as planned.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.
On why she announced the news so early...
"I don’t know…wanting to share my excitement with the people who have shown me love. I hope I didn’t jinx myself. I hope and pray that will not be the case."
On having a baby at 45 years old...
"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."
On any issues with conception...
"Surprisingly, I have always been very fertile. I didn’t really feel the anticipation that other women experience with regard to attempting to have a child. I didn’t have fertility treatments or freeze my eggs. It was the grace of God."
