Cromartie — famed for fathering 10 kids from eight women in six states — and his wife Terricka told Us Weekly she’s pregnant with twins, which came as a total shock. The Jets’ All-Pro cornerback reportedly got a vasectomy late in the 2011 season with his 10th child on the way, The Post previously reported.
But Terricka learned she was pregnant in October, according to Us Weekly, when she went to the emergency room with cramps. “I really thought I was dreaming, even after, I was just in total disbelief,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible. I was going back and forth in my head how it could even happen. In my head we were good to go, we were having free sex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point.”
Of Antonio’s reaction, she commented,
“Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s - - t! Are you serious? How did this happen?’ It was shocking news for the both of us. It took me a while to process it, but Antonio stood firm and was saying, ‘It’s God’s will.’ And he’s been excited the whole time.”
The couple married in November 2008 and are already parents to daughter Jurzie, 5, and son Jagger, 3. Cromartie has eight other kids.
“To be honest, I’ve gone back and forth about if I wanted to share the news or not,” Terricka told Us. “All my children are blessings, and all of Antonio’s children are blessings, for that matter. It was made to seem that my children weren’t a blessing because they were categorized by a number, and for that reason and that reason alone, I hid both of my [first two] pregnancies with my husband, just so I could enjoy them with those who were really happy for me.”
