I opened up my email yesterday afternoon to see the above and was like OMG, that’s US! Lateef and I were asked in May to be interviewed for the show Black Love and had an amazing conversation with the director Codie Elaine Oliver (her husband Tommy Oliver is the Executive Producer). We didn’t know if it would air or not – they still hadn’t sold the special, but we were happy to spread our story in hopes it would help others. We talked about so much more – how we met and fell in love, how we’ve built the relationship we have today and how it helped us get through COVID as a family and made us stronger as a couple.
It was honestly beautiful to tape this on the tail end of our harrowing journey. We feel very lucky as a couple to have found each other and we know we have a special bond, friendship and relationship. But that’s just our little secret – we’ve never shared it. I can’t wait (and I’m nervous) to see how it turns out!
Black love is beautiful. It is a privilege to be a testimony.
Check us out TODAY, Saturday, October 17th on Black Love on Oprah’s OWN Network, 9:00pm ET. Check out the teaser for the show below!
