Tami started dating former NFL player 17-years-younger Reggie Youngblood in 2013. In 2018, the couple stunned fans by eloping and announcing a Las Vegas wedding on social media.

Tami admitted that getting married was Reggie's idea, and one she finally agreed to after some soul-searching. She revealed:

"This man genuinely loves me. And this is something that he wants and never experienced. So I’d be selfish to not travel down that road with someone who I really love.”

Tami now 50, revealed that in 2015 she suffered a miscarriage at 10 weeks, losing the baby she and Reggie so desperately wanted. Tami admitted that the miscarriage was due to her health issues. She said:

"I have a prolapsed uterus and am diabetic. I battle bouts of hypoglycemia due to my diabetes and my blood pressure continually ran high."

The loss of their baby hit Reggie, who is 17 younger than Tami, particularly hard. He revealed:

"This is a tough time for us. It is the worst pain I've felt since losing my mother."

In February 2020, Tami revealed that she and Reggie have suffered 3 miscarriages and are currently looking for a surrogate to carry their baby. She said:

"I saw Kandi had somebody have her baby. I said 'Oh okay, chile, that's what we doing now?'"

Tam has revealed that they have already harvested the eggs, so this may be the year that Lyric and Jazz welcome a brand new baby brother and sister.
