The love between Tika Sumpter and her fiancee, Nick James remains strong and they have Valentine’s Day posts to prove it. The couple who share a daughter paid tribute to their relationship by reminding each other of what they each mean to one another.

Since their romance blossomed on the set of “The Haves and the Have Nots,” the engaged pair has been showing the world that their union is a lasting one. In spite of haters bashing their interracial relationship, they’ve proven time and again that their love is worth fighting for.

It’s clear from the couple’s posts that one thing remains constant. They are each other’s best friends. In sharing a photo of the two of them taking a selfie, the actress wrote,

“My lover, my best friend. You make me a better human. Love you to life.”

Meanwhile, Nick thanked Tika for being his partner and so much more.

“You’re my best friend. You’re my best supporter. You’re my best audience for my dad jokes! You’ve changed my life, my way of thinking, and opened my eyes to so much.”

Nick also acknowledged that “it hasn’t been easy” but adds, “nothing that is this great is.” He ended his message by saying, “I praise the day we met and I thank god for keeping us together and laughing! I love you happy Valentine’s Day to my 2 gems!”

Nick’s sweet message accompanied a photo of the couple taken inside a theatre. Judging from Tika’s smile, it’s evident she feels safest in the arms of the father of her daughter, Ella.

Nick and Tika welcomed Ella Loren three years ago and the little girl just solidified their bond even more. As the couple’s detractors slammed them for their biracial union, Tika fought back by defending it. However, she still admits that raising her mixed-race child scares her.

“I have a child who is biracial and it’s amazing and also crazy and scary at the same time,” she told Newsweek in September. But she’s grateful to her show, “Mixed-ish” for teaching her how to build confidence in Ella.

In “Mixed-ish,” Tika plays Alice, the wife of a White man named Paul (played by Mark Paul Gosselaar) with whom she shares mixed-race daughter, Bow. Bow was the character portrayed by Tracee Ellis Ross in the original show, “Black-ish.” In the spinoff, Arica Himmel stars as the young Bow.

Tika is proud of the fact that her show delves into issues very close to her. And it’s not just about being Black and what it means, according to Tika. Neither is it just about mixed race and biracial issues. More importantly, she stressed that the show is about identity. One thing she hopes her daughter will learn to embrace as she comes into her own.
