New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is 31-years old, has a four-year, $32 million contract, and a $336,000 child support payment. He pays an average of $3,500 a month to seven women who have borne him eight of his ten children.
The football star recently found out he was having twins with his current wife. This came as quite a shock since he had a vasectomy after his last child was born. The surgery is said to be 99.85 percent effective in preventing pregnancy.
His wife, Terricka, said she found out that she was pregnant when she went into the hospital with bad cramps in October. She said she was floored when they told her she was pregnant.
When she found out she was pregnant again, she said, ‘I really thought I was dreaming, even after, I was just in total disbelief. 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 $ex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point.”
What was Cromartie’s response? “Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s**t! Are you serious? How did this happen?'”
Later, he said, ”It’s God’s will.” The football hero already has two children with Terricka, daughter, Jurzie, five, and son Jagger, three.
If his current $336,000 child support payment isn’t enough, the Daily Mail reports that several of the former lovers and mothers of his children have taken him to court over custody and finances. For example, a Houston woman who is the mother of two of the children wants bigger monthly allotments.
Cromartie posted an Instagram about a child support card that restricts what mothers can and cannot buy. His caption, “Sign me up TODAY!!! Nah but foreal though… lol.” It was not met with fondness by the children’s mothers.
While Terricka says that the children are, indeed, a blessing. After this pregnancy, she is getting her tubes tied.
