Viewers of the OWN reality television series Love & Marriage: Huntsville have been entertained with drama since the show aired in 2019. Most of the mess has centered around Martell and Melody Holt’s rollercoaster marriage due to his long-term mistress Arionne Curry – and their subsequent divorce. The fallout of the friendship between the Holts and Marsau and LaTisha Scott has also been a major storyline. But fans have something new to focus on as Louis and Tiffany Whitlow have announced they are having their first child together.
The blended family have been discussing having a baby together for some time now. And their dream has come to fruition.
The couple previously disagreed on expanding their family
Tiffany and Louis are already parents to teenage sons they both had in previous marriages. She surprised Louis with a wedding on his 40th birthday in 2020. Two years prior, he proposed to Tiffany on her birthday. Their wedding was covered by a local news station and took place at Toyota Field.
“We have been talking about getting married,” Tiffany told the outlet. “So marriage has just been an afterthought.” She chose the baseball stadium in Alabama because of Louis’ love of the sport. “His passion for the game of baseball is really just making sure that the athletes are prepared on and off the field for life,” she added. “So I said hmmm, our life can happen on the field — [I] pitched the idea and it worked!”
After two years of marriage, Tiffany began conversations about wanting to have a child together. Though she admitted they agreed on not having children previously. Louis had reservations, complaining that Tiffany is a workaholic. Whenever she’d broach the subject, things would get intense.
