Antonio Cromartie is taking being potent to an entirely new level.
US Weekly is reporting that the New York Jets' cornerback and his wife, Terricka Cromartie, are pregnant and expecting twins... despite Antonio having previously undergone a vasectomy.
"I really thought I was dreaming, even after, I was just in total disbelief," Terricka told US Weekly about initially learning she was pregnant in October. "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 sex! I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point."
Evidently, not. The couple are already parents to a 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son and Antonio has eight children from previous relationships, making the impending arrival of twins the cornerback's 11th and 12th kids.
Antonio's first reaction to the news?
"Originally, he was like, 'Oh, s**t! Are you serious? How did this happen?'" Terricka continued telling the publication. "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."
Cro can fill one side of a football team with his little ones.
