There could be a child in the world with Tiffany Haddish’s genes, apparently.
In a conversation with Daily Pop from E! On Monday, the “Kids Say the Darndest Things” host revealed that she once sold her eggs when she was young and needed the money.
“Here’s something nobody knows. I’ll tell you,” she preferred. “At 21, I was really tough on money and gave up a bunch of eggs.”
She further joked that to this day she does not know if any children were born from egg donation 20 years ago.
“So who knows, I might have kids here on these streets. I doubt that because I never got the bonus. Maybe somewhere though. They’re probably somewhere,” she joked.
In her personal life, however, Haddish is not currently trying to get pregnant or have her own biological children, she said.
“If I get pregnant, it’s all God, knock down all the walls, all the barriers, because definitely, I took the precautions to protect myself,” she said.
But even if pregnancy is out of the question, having children is not. The 41-year-old actress has expressed a desire to one day adopt children, adding that she is taking parenting classes to make adoption possible.
“I want them to know that I did the job and wanted them,” she explained of the classes. She also said she envisioned children “5 and over. Really, 7. I want them to know how to use the toilet on their own and how to talk.”
This echoes a previous comment she made about adoption in a November episode of her boyfriend Common’s Mind Power Mixtape podcast. At the time, she said she wanted to adopt a child who was “between 6 and 10 years old, get them in there because you can mold their minds.
“They are still malleable in a lot of ways until the age of 21, that’s what I think,” she explained.
