After a wild number of newly additions to one’s family (fourteenth this time) former Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie claims he and wife Terricka are now focused on raising their family, not expanding it.
“That is it. We’re done,” the 11-year NFL vet said Tuesday in an interview with For the Win.
On August thirtieth, his wife Terricka gave birth to their daughter Jhett Paxton, the sixth child she shares with Cromartie.
“We’re blessed and thankful for our kids,” Terricka said. “I don’t want to be pregnant anymore. I enjoy being a mother to my kids that are here.”
Although Cromartie got a vasectomy in 2013, three years later in May of 2016, he and his wife Terricka welcomed twins in their family. He is adamant about the births of his children (after the procedure) being the work of a higher power.
“It’s a blessing from God,” Cromartie said. “I’m part of that 1 percent that it happens to. That’s just the story of it. We figured everything was a gift from God, and we’re rolling with it.”
Once the doors to the reality TV cameras were opened, Terricka was eager for the world to see how the father of 14 battles toddlers instead of receivers with Thursday’s premiere of “The Cromarties.”
“He puts as much effort into parenting as he did on the field,” she reveals. “People will get to see him as a father. You’ll get to see how hands-on and present he is and how the kids love and adore him.”
In addition to the six children he shares with Terricka, Cromartie is also the father to eight other kids with different women.
