The pair have been dating for a year and a half and both star on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots. Recently, Sumpter shared that their pregnancy was a surprised and wasn’t planned.
My pregnancy wasn’t planned. I found out around Valentine’s Day, when my boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to San Diego. I never want McDonald’s, but I was like, ‘I need a Big Mac, fries, and a Coke now.’ They were still only serving breakfast, so I insisted we wait there until they started serving lunch. Afterward, I immediately fell asleep. When I woke up, my boyfriend was like, ‘Ha-ha! Are you pregnant?’ I said, ‘Maybe. Go get a test!’ He brought back a generic-brand test, and right away it said positive. I could not comprehend it. So I said, ‘Go get a name-brand test!’ He did, and that one said yes too. I still have the stick. I had to show it to my mom, because she didn’t even believe me when I told her.
Neither Tika nor Nicholas have spoken publicly about their relationship or their new bundle of joy. Anywho, congrats to them!
