Tanisha Thomas just stepped into the world of motherhood. Alongside her boyfriend Carey, the Bad Girls Club star hopped on Instagram to show off her newborn son Aiden — who was born just before midnight on March 7 — calling the baby her “greatest accomplishment.”
“I am a woman of many hats however this blessing right here is my greatest accomplishment,” she wrote alongside a sweet mommy-and-son photo. On his own Instagram, the new dad wrote that Aiden’s birth is the “proudest moment of [his] life thus far.”
“Forever grateful to the amazing staff at NYU I really couldn’t do it without you,” Tanisha continued in the post. “And Thank you for all of your beautiful words and love.”
The new mom —who made her television debut during season 2 of Bad Girls Club — had been boasting her bump for months, super excited to be bringing her first child into the world. She announced the news in the fall of last year (October), posting a string of maternity photos with her baby daddy Carey.
“I’m still in shock myself […] However God makes NO mistakes,” she captioned pictures of herself in a long, maroon-colored gown. “With patience and faith we waited for our miracle… And now with love, we joyfully announce our very special blessing.”
She stated that this experience was only bettered by her “partner, soul mate and Father to be.”
“Forever Grateful and Blessed”
“From the moment you entered my life you’ve brought me so much joy, laughter and peace. And despite my occasional antics you [love] me unconditionally and effortlessly,” she wrote about her “king,” Carey. “I wouldn’t trade you for the world and even though I’ve developed slight anxiety recently, with you by my side I know there’s nothing I can’t conquer.”
After saying that the feelings she has for the father of her child are unexplainable and “more than love,” the-32-year-old said she was “forever grateful and blessed” to have Carey in her life. “God saved the BEST for last,” she added.
Fans were overjoyed to see Tanisha so happy, especially after her first marriage went down in flames on public television.
Try & Try Again
Clive and Tanisha’s relationship spanned from 2009 to 2014, with the two getting married in 2011, after three years of dating. Two reality television shows — Tanisha Gets Married and Marriage Boot Camp — after the fact, the duo just could not make it work.
Fans were exposed to the many issues the couple had as they watched Clive and Tanisha prepare for their weeding. During the 10-episode season, Tanisha caught Clive on a dating site, opting to draft a prenup afterwards. The couple fought over Clive’s jealousy of Sean, Tanisha’s best friend. All alongside several other blowout fights.
Not even one month after the wedding, Clive and Tanisha separated, citing personal conflicts. The counseling they received on Marriage Boot Camp didn’t help much, as the two still opted to divorce.
“It is a work in progress. It is not easy, I am in the public eye so I am constantly on the go. Clive works in a grocery store as a stock person, so he definitely gets overwhelmed and this is all brand new for him,” Tanisha said at the time.
