EXCLUSIVE: T.I. & Tiny's Glamorous Baby Shower Is a 'Royal Affair'
By Zach Seemayer
T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris celebrated their upcoming bundle of joy with a lavish baby shower on Sunday, and ET has an exclusive look at the revelry.
The celebratory bash was held at The Royal Harris Castle in Atlanta, Georgia, where T.I., Tiny and their children made a grand entrance into the baby shower to excited fanfare.
Before the event, Tiny spoke exclusively with ET about the party, where she said she wanted the baby shower's theme to be "a royal affair," and it looks like the 40-year-old singer-songwriter certainly got her wish.
Among the guest were Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost, Married to Medicine's Dr. Jackie Walters and Sarah-Elizabeth Reed, wife of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
T.I. flew into Atlanta for the big event, coming from Las Vegas where he had performed live at Drai's Nightclub at The Cromwell hotel.
According to Tiny, who is due in April, her latest pregnancy "has been great," but this will be the couple's last kid.
The new baby will be Tiny and T.I.'s third child together after welcoming their first son, Clifford "King" Joseph Harris III, in August 2004 and their second son, Major Philant Harris, in May 2008. T.I. has two older sons, Messiah Ya'Majesty Harris and Domani Uriah Harris, and a daughter, Deyjah Imani Harris, from previous relationships. Tiny has an older daughter, Zonnique Jailee Pullins, from a previous relationship as well.
According to the expectant mom, their other kids "are excited" about the upcoming addition.
"They are trying to pitch in at home," Tiny beamed. "King has already bought the baby gifts. He found some socks the other day for the baby."
She added that, this time around, her 35-year-old husband is "much more involved" with her pregnancy than ever before.
"I think it's because it's a girl," Tiny explained. "His protective nature is already coming out."
The Xscape singer also opened up about her pregnancy style, which can be difficult for some celeb moms. But for Tiny, "Dressing hasn't been tough because I dress comfortably and I don't wear a lot of heels. I've had to get some different pants to accommodate my stomach, but that's about it."
