Tiffany Haddish Opens Up to BF Common About Her Plans to Foster Children

Tiffany Haddish hopes to be a mother in the near future.

In a clip obtained by “E! News” on Wednesday, the “Girls Trip” star spoke to boyfriend Common on his “Mind Power Mixtape” podcast about her plans to foster or adopt children.

“I just want to bring survival skills, share everything I know with them,” the actress told the rapper. “I definitely want to either foster kids or adopt and get them at [age] 7 — where they know how to use the bathroom, they can communicate, tell you they’re hungry.”

“They should have some manners. If not, they can learn them... You can mold their mind,” she continued. “I want the child to know, ‘Hey, I chose you to be here with me and I want to give you all the knowledge that I have.’”

During the intimate sit-down, Haddish also opened up about her drama teacher, who — per Tiffany’s 2017 memoir “The Last Black Unicorn” — helped her learn how to read.

“I think she’s the dopest drama teacher,” Haddish said. “She did all kinds of things and I just admired her so much because she wasn’t just in one lane. She made it so clear, she was like, ‘Tiffany, it’s important for you to know how to read, no matter what you do in life.’”

“It wasn’t that I didn’t want to know how to read, it was that I thought I was stupid,” she added. “I thought I was dumb, because that’s what I was being told on a regular basis. When your parents are telling you that stuff, you believe that stuff. It really affected me, and it still does to this day. But I have a different way to communicate with myself.”

Haddish previously confirmed her relationship with the MC in August while appearing on Steve-O’s “Wild Ride” podcast.

While saying it is “hands down the best relationship I’ve ever been in,” she added, “Knowing that I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back — it seems like he does, anyways — and I love it. I love him.”

Earlier this month, Common revealed on “The Karen Hunter Show” that the two were “doing wonderful.”

“She’s a really incredible human being, and, you know, the more I get to know her, I just see how dynamic she is as a person,” he said. “How intelligent, how selfless she is, how she stands up in Hollywood for Black women.”

“And ultimately... the one thing that I’ll say about anyone I’ve dated that you named, I like good-hearted people, and Tiffany has a wonderful heart at the end of the day.”
