Tiffany Haddish tells boyfriend Common she wants to 'adopt or foster' kids after she spent five years in foster care


TIFFANY Haddish revealed to her boyfriend, Common, she wants to 'adopt or foster' kids.

The comedienne and actress had spent five years in foster care herself.

Tiffany told Common on his Mind Power Mixtape podcast: "I just want to bring survival skills, share everything I know with them.

"I definitely want to either foster kids or adopt and get them at [age] seven—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.

"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."

In Tiffany's 2017 memoir The Last Black Unicorn, she discussed her experience in the foster care system claiming she was bullied, abused and molested between the ages of 13 to 18.

She also revealed she was only at a first or second-grade reading level until ninth grade.

The actress credited her drama teacher though with turning things around recalling: "I think she's the dopest drama teacher.

"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.

"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."

Tiffany also recently said of her budding romance with Common on an episode gushed on Steve-O's Wild Ride! podcast in August: "This is hands down the best relationship I've ever been in.

"I've lost 20 pounds since I've been in this relationship. I feel more confident in me and it's not him that's doing it."

"Knowing that I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back—it seems like he does anyway—and I love it. I love him."

Tiffany showed off her hard work in a recent video wearing spandex and pushing through intense training sessions of cardio on the treadmill, pushups, lunges, running outside on a soccer field and more.

She said in the new clip on Instagram: “It hurts so Good to make changes to my body!”
