Actress Tika Sumpter is engaged to white chocolate boyfriend, ‘Haves And Have Nots’ co-star Nick James who happens to be the daddy to daughter Ella-Loren!
It was announced that American actress, producer, television host, and model Tika Sumpter got engaged to her new fiance and baby daddy, Co-Star Nick James over the holidays. The New York City native broke the big news to the ladies of “The Real” that is scheduled to air next week.
Joseline Hernandez; who recently gave birth and a first time mommy was a co-host of the daytime show when Tika made the announcement. If Tika Sumpter can keep her pregnant body and baby bump a secret for more than six months, could it also be that she’s secretly married already and Nick James is her husband and baby daddy, NOT her fiance? The big diamond engagement ring looks more like a wedding ring to me…
