‘I really thought I was dreaming, even after, I was just in total disbelief.
‘I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible. Was going back and forth in my head how it could even happen.

The corner back is no stranger to being a father as he and Terricka share a daughter Jurzie, 5, and son Jagger, 3, but he also has a staggering eight other children from previous relationships.
Terricka also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
He has previously been criticized for the amount of children her has and his wife of seven years told the magazine she thought about hiding her pregnancy because she wanted the twins to be more than a number.
She told US: ‘To be honest, I’ve gone back and forth about if I wanted to share the news or not.
‘All my children are blessings and all of Antonio’s children are blessings, for that matter. It was made to seem that my children weren’t a blessing because they were categorized by a number, and for that reason and that reason alone, I hid both of my [first two] pregnancies with my husband, just so I could enjoy them with those who were really happy for me.’
But while they may all be blessings after the babies arrive, the model said she plans to ensure there are no more blessings for her family by getting her tubes tied.
