- Actress Tiffany Haddish feels it is time to start a family with her rapper boyfriend Common, but she cannot carry a child
- This is due to the fact that when she was 21 years old, the Who's Got Jokes? star needed money so badly that she sold her eggs, meaning she can no longer conceive
- With surrogacy not an option on her table, she has been left to consider adoption as the last resort
41-year-old US actress Tiffany Sara Haddish, who is dating rapper Common, is ready to start a family but she can't.
This is due to the fact that she made a lifelong decision aged 21 that makes it impossible for her to conceive. According to her, there was a time she really wanted money and the only way out was to sell her eggs.
"Here comes something everybody doesn't know. When I was 21, I was really hard up with money and I gave up a bunch of eggs," she told E!'s Daily Pop.

Born on December 3, 1979, the Eritrean-American actress has surrogacy as one of the options, but that is not something she is willing to pursue. She explained that she does not want to pay a surrogate mother to carry her baby because she would need to have a series of injections herself.
That has left her with adoption as a last resort, which is why she has been attending parenting classes to equip herself with the fundamentals.
"I'm taking parenting classes now so I can adopt. I'm looking at ages five and up, really like seven. I want them to be able to use the restroom on their own and talk," she expressed.
After being financially distressed for a better part of her youth, Tiffany's breakthrough came in 2006 when she appeared in Bill Bellamy's show Who's Got Jokes.
DailyMail UK reported that Tiffany said getting pregnant and having a baby would be a miracl3, because she has 'taken the precautions' to make sure that doesn't happen. Presumably this means some intense kind of birth control. When asked about the possibility of getting pregnant herself, she added:
"Let me tell you, if I get pregnant that is all God tearing down all walls, all barriers."
In other news about Tiffany Haddish, Briefly News previously reported that she turned down an offer to host a Grammy's pre-show. The comedienne shared that she couldn't accept the gig because the organisation had asked her to pay for everything.
The actress said the Recording Academy asked her to host a three-hour telecast ahead of the main ceremony in January, 2021. They then told her she wouldn't get paid.
On top of not getting a cent for hosting the pre-show, Tiffany was surprised when she was further told that she would have to pay for her own hair, makeup and wardrobe costs. The star expressed that the Grammy's offer was "disrespectful".
