Antonio Cromartie shares theory why he kept having kids after vasectomy
Antonio Cromartie is the proud — and presumably frazzled — father of 14 children. Despite having a vasectomy in 2013, former New York Jets cornerback and wife Terricka had twins in 2016, three years after the procedure. And just this past August, the couple welcomed daughter Jhett Paxton.
So, what gives? Cromartie has an interesting theory on why the procedure evidently isn’t doing what it’s supposed to do.
“It’s a blessing from God,” Cromartie said, via the New York Post. “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.”
Terricka, Cromartie’s spouse of nine years who is the biological mother of six of her husband’s children, shared a somewhat different take about “rolling with it.”
“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.”
The trials and tribulations of the Cromartie family’s attempt to oversee a houseful of 14 kids are being chronicled in a new reality series “The Cromarties,” which premieres Thursday on USA Network.
“He puts as much effort into parenting as he did on the field,” Terricka shared of how perceptions of her husband may change due to the reality show. “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.”
And what does the future hold for Cromartie, at least as it relates to his ever-expanding brood?
“That is it. We’re done,” Cromartie said.
That’s all well and good, but how can he be so sure about it, right? He’s clearly been surprised more than once on that front.
