The cornerback’s wife says that despite his vasectomy, she is pregnant with twins, which now gives the fertile football player enough children to field a little team of his own. And a kicker.
“I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible,” Terricka Cromartie told US Weekly. “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 sex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point.”
Cromartie, who famously already has 10 children, now 12 with multiple women including Terricka, was blindsided.
“Originally, he was like, ‘Oh, s–t! Are you serious? How did this happen?’” Terricka recalled. “It was shocking news for the both of us. It took me a while to process it, but Antonio stood firm and was saying, ‘It’s God’s will.’ And he’s been excited the whole time.”
Cromartie recently joked on Instagram about his child support issues. He posted a picture last week on the social media site that read, “New ‘CHILD SUPPORT CARD’ Controls What Mothers Can and CANNOT Buy With Child Support Money…And They Are Not Happy About It!” Cromartie wrote in the caption of the photo, “Sign me up TODAY!!! … Nah but foreal though.”
In September, he got into a Twitter war with the son of Jets tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson after the coach’s son mocked Cromartie and his family. A couple months later, Cromartie’s wife sparred with Jets fans on Twitter when they sent posted insults about her husband and the number of children he has.
Cromartie became infamous thanks to an unforgettable Hard Knocks scene in 2010 in which he appeared to struggle to recall all of his kids’ names:
Cromartie, 32, and Terricka, 35, were married in 2008.
