"The Real" co-host Loni Love might be head over heels in love with her man, James Welsh, but that does not mean she is ready to take their relationship to the next level. Here is what she really thinks about marriage.


Loni Love and her partner, James Welsh, are closer than ever. The pandemic has given them plenty of time to be around each other and the good thing is, their relationship is thriving rather than falling apart like most couples'. 

Love feels like she and Welsh are perfect together and even thinks that they are meant to be. She recently had a chat with the "Tamron Hall Show" host Tamron Hall about how her relationship with her partner is really like.

The "The Real" co-host told Hall that she and have a special relationship that has only gotten better as they quarantine together. She said:

"If me and James can be together and he doesn’t die from my cooking, then we’re meant to be together. He is my boo."


Love's new book "I Tried To Change So You Don’t Have To" documents how she met Welsh later in her life when she was not expecting love to come around.

She wants people to never give up on love because you never know when it might come around. When it comes to marriage, though, Love thinks that it is not everybody's cup of tea.


Welsh is the first White person that the co-host has ever dated.


Love is an independent woman who got a taste of how it feels like to be responsible for your own life from a young age. She learned a great deal by living on her own after her mom kicked her out of the house when she was 17.


In the same interview with Hall, Love shared how she really feels about the idea of getting married to Welsh, stressing that she is not entirely against the institution of marriage. 

" I did the road for over 20 years. I had to realize, 'Hey, if I’m going to be married. That's a whole different lane I’m going to have to take.' I chose a different lane."

Welsh is the first White person that the co-host has ever dated, but she still has a hard time remembering that she is in an interracial relationship.

Back in March, she confessed in an episode of "The Real" that she forgets that Welsh is white, especially when they are in bed. The couple made their relationship public in 2018.
