Tiny Harris recently opened up to DJ Vlad about the most heartbreaking moment in her life. The singer recalled the tragic loss of her daughter in 2007.


Tameka "Tiny" Harris has a beautiful blended family with rapper Clifford "T.I." Joseph Harris Jr. The couple has seven kids together that fans fell in love with on their hit reality show "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle."

Unfortunately, the couple was dealt a hard blow in 2007 when they lost their daughter prematurely in 2007. Tiny opened up about the ordeal in an interview with DJ Vlad.

Tiny was six months pregnant when she gave birth to her stillborn daughter. She was her and T.I.'s second child together, whom they named Leyah Amore.

In the VLAD TV interview, which was released on YouTube, the Xscape singer became emotional as she described the rough month that followed the loss.


The mom of seven said that moment was one of the saddest times in her life, and she was "out of it" for weeks. She added:

"Having a baby but not going home with the baby, like, that just traumatized me."


Although Tiny knew there were complications with the pregnancy, she never expected it to end in such a tragedy. The singer said that she knew her baby's sac was split into two and had not combined when she reached 16 weeks.

The star only expected that her baby might get tangled in her umbilical cord, but after a trip to the specialist, she was told the devastating news that there was no heartbeat.

The couple struggled to let go of their baby girl and kept her in the room the whole time after she passed away. The family eventually held a beautiful funeral for their daughter and still visit the gravesite on holidays and special days.

Tiny told Essence that during that depressing time, she kept a lot of company around her so that she could keep her mind off it. The experience also brought her and T.I. closer.


T.I. and Tiny started dating in 2001. At the time, Tiny had a daughter, Zonnique Pullins, from a previous relationship with Zeboe Pullins. T.I. also had his own kids, Messiah Ya’Majesty Harris, Domani Uriah Harris, and daughter, Deyjah Imani Harris, from two other women.


By the time the couple tied the knot in 2010, they had added two beautiful kids to their blended family - Clifford ‘King’ Joseph Harris III, and Major Philant Harris. Heiress Diana Harris was born in 2016.

Keeping the family together has been a full-time job for Tiny and T.I., as shown on their reality show. However, Tiny has managed to keep her household in order while still pursuing her music goals with her former girl group Xscape.
