We’re going to go on a limb and say it. NFL player Antonio Cromartie has got to be the most fertile man on the earth because even after reportedly undergoing a vasectomy, he managed to impregnate his wife with twins who will become his 11th and 12th child….again.
Stick with us a little here.
Back in April 2012, Cromartie’s wife Terricka Cromartie (nee Cason) tweeted that she and Antonio were expecting twins that November 2012.
“Without the lies i’ll tell u anything u want to kno just ask me.. I”ve always been an up front person.. Oh yea we are expecting twins in Nov,” Terricka wrote in a tweet announcing the twins’ due date. That tweet too has since been deleted.
We reported it and so did other outlets like NecoleBitchie (now xoNecole) . The news was picked up by the New York Daily News and the NY Post who linked to the Instagram image of a sonogram of the twins that Terricka posted. (now deleted).
She accepted congratulations about the twins and even tweeted “Twins run in my family.” (tweets since been deleted)
She never delivered twins in 2012.
But then, this past October, Terricka told US Weekly that again she and the New York Jets cornerback are expecting twins but she added that she was surprised to learn she was expecting because her sportsman hubby had a vasectomy in 2011.
“I really thought I was dreaming, even after, I was just in total disbelief,” she told Us about a trip to the emergency one night over what she thought was severe cramping. “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.”
Terricka told the magazine that Antonio too was shocked.
“Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s–t! Are you serious? How did this happen?'” Terricka said. “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.”
Well…hmmm. If he got her pregnant with twins in 2012, then neither of them should be too surprised Antonio did it again 3 years later. scratches head
In all seriousness, however, condolences may be in order here if Terricka perhaps lost the babies (or baby) due in November 2012. The tweet was made perhaps at the 8-10 week point in her pregnancy, at that critical point during pregnancies when miscarriage is common.
It has been a bumpy road for the couple because the NY Post reported when Terricka was 7-months pregnant with their second child, she sent Antonio fake suicide texts leading him to call 911 emergency paramedics who arrived to find Terricka fine in bed with her daughters. She later confessed to officers that she did it to get attention of Antonio who she suspected was cheating at the time and submitted to an involuntary psych eval.
But still, back to this pregnancy, what are the odds really, though, of getting pregnant with twins twice by a man who had a vasectomy? That’s got to be a medical miracle…or someone botched his procedure (or someone maybe isn’t being honest).
According to WebMD, a vasectomy is an 99.85% effective birth control method. Only one to two women out of 1,000 will have an unplanned pregnancy in the first year after their partner has had a vasectomy, the site said.
Terricka later tweeted (now deleted) that she was not expecting twins and perhaps set up the media with a bogus claim Larry Brown Sports suggested in 2012, or not. Who knows.
Nonetheless, Terricka considers this miracle pregnancy a blessing.
“To be honest, I’ve gone back and forth about if I wanted to share the news or not,” she told the gossip magazine. “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.”
This will be the 4th and 5th child for the couple, together. They are parents to 3-year old son Jagger and 5-year old daughter Jurzie (love that name!).
Terricka has a daughter, Jordynn, from a previous relationship. Cromartie has 8 children from 8 previous relationships.
After famously dissing the 8 baby mamas for trying to make money by doing a reality TV about blended families and how all 8 women and their children get along well and have a great relationship, Terricka is now leading the new reality TV show she and Antonio are shooting which will launchpad off their book about blended families the couple is working on, US Weekly reports.
Recall, the reality show the baby mamas were trying to do could not be greenlit because Antonio refused to grant permission for his children to be featured in it.
