‘Grandfather Tip’: Fans Are In Stitches Over T.I.’s Reaction to Zonnique’s Pregnancy Reveal

Zonnique Pullins recently announced she was pregnant and it seemed everyone knew except for her pops, rapper T.I.

The 24 year old is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of two years, rapper Bandhunta Izzy, 23. Pullins, who is the daughter of singer Tameka Tiny Harris and stepdaughter of T.I., revealed the baby news to T.I. during the Aug. 4 premiere episode of FOX Soul’s “The Mix,” a show presented by Pullins’ mom. Pullins is one of the show’s hosts and listened on as a co-host asked T.I. about a sonogram, more specifically to which of the hosts he thought it belonged.

The “Whatever You Like” rapper responded by saying, “Anybody but Nique Nique.”

Well, it turns out the father of six was wrong. Seconds later, Pullins, who fueled pregnancy rumors last week, confessed to a stunned and speechless T.I. that she is expecting. The musician refused to believe her until his wife Tiny joined them and confirmed the news.

The soon-to-be grandfather yelled, “I need a another drink and a joint.” He also learned that Tiny and Pullins had been exchanging messages about buying baby clothes, something to which he was clueless. He also didn’t seem too thrilled that he didn’t know.

I’m getting more excited by the day!! @zonniquejailee @bandhunta_izzy Congratulations to you both!! I love y’all 👑💙‼️”

T.I. hasn’t said anything else about Pullins’ baby news.

Pullins and Bandhunta Izzy, who already has two children, are expecting a girl. The former OMG Girlz member is currently five months pregnant.
