UPI News Service, 08/03/2015
Tami Roman and boyfriend Reggie Youngblood have lost their baby to a miscarriage.
The 45-year-old reality star's rep confirmed the news to TMZ on Thursday, saying the couple are "mourning the loss with their close friends and family." The pair announced they were expecting their first child together in June.
"I am deeply saddened that after 10.5 weeks, we suffer this loss," Roman told E! News. "We knew this would be an uphill battle. We were up against the odds. I have a prolapsed uterus and am diabetic ... We were prayerful, we had and still have faith. We are not giving up."
"This is a tough time for us," Youngblood added. "It is the worst pain I've felt since losing my mother. I want people to understand the sensitivity of this situation. We are hurting and negative comments don't help."
Roman and Youngblood, who is 17 years her junior, started dating in 2014. The reality star was previously married to retired NBA star Kenny Anderson, and shares two daughters, Lyric and Jazz, with the former basketball player.
