Bre Tiesi is in support of an important message about parenthood!
The model, who shares her son Legendary with rapper Nick Cannon, knows all too well the pressure that comes with being a first-time parent. Considering their shared experience, she showed support for Keke Palmer‘s recent acknowledgment of the struggles faced by single parents.
Bre Tiesi Backs Keke Palmer’s Views On Single Parenthood
Palmer, who welcomed their first child, Leodis, on Feb. 25 with her boyfriend Darius Jackson, posted a video to her page expressing admiration for people able to raise their child on their own. In the clip, the “So Uncool” singer said:
“I just came on here to say, if you’re a single parent, pull out your cape. Matter of fact, clip off your angel wings. Because I don’t know how you guys are doing it.”
The “Nope” actress clarified that she was not trying to pander to them but that she knew there were “a million and one reasons why somebody wants to be a single parent or has become a single parent.”
The 29-year-old noted that the situation could have been caused by several things – “Maybe they have lost somebody, maybe they don’t want to deal with somebody, maybe it’s a choice.” She continued saying:
“But when it comes to raising a kid, I’ve already learned in these short few days that it takes a village. And sometimes that’s a privilege.”
The “Akeelah and the Bee” star then added, “And I just want anybody out there that is a single parent that has been doing this – Friends of mine, people that I don’t know, family members of mine. I’m really in my heart, it brings tears to my eyes, I’m just truly profoundly impressed.”
The “Selling Sunset” star then showed her agreement with the candid video by writing, “Well said 🙏🏻👏🏻,” across the clip. Despite her agreement, Tiesi had previously shared her own views on the topic of being a single mom.
The mother-of-one opined that the tag of ‘single mom’ was something she wasn’t willing to accept. This is because she has developed a solid co-parenting relationship with Cannon, which is frequently showcased on social media.
However, some fans label her a single mom, most likely due to his numerous other children with different mothers. The Blast shared that to silence the critics the social media influencer pushed back against this label in a video via her Instagram story.
The clip featured a conversation on “Nice and Neat The Podcast” between a woman and two men. One of the men asked if she considered herself a single mom, and she said, “No.”
Instead, she referred to herself as a “co-parenting mom,” explaining that her mother raised her as a single mom growing up. She elaborated that someone shares the responsibility of parenting with her and is actively involved in her children’s lives. She also pointed out that she chose her co-parent deliberately.
The woman acknowledged this was not the case for her mother, who raised three children independently without any support or fatherly presence. Hence, she believes her mother is a single mother, unlike herself. Tiesi appeared to fully agree with the post, as she captioned it with a simple, “this…”
The Reality Star Reveals Education Plans for Son Legendary Love on Instagram
Tiesi took to her page to share her plans for her seven-month-old son. The Blast noted that she already has a clear vision for his education and intends to homeschool him when he reaches school age.
The mother-of-one shared a TikTok video featuring YouTuber and real estate mogul Ryan Pineda, in which he gave several reasons why he had chosen that path for his children.
She revealed that being able to travel as a family at a moment’s notice was one of the main reasons, adding, “I don’t really want the school system telling me when I can and can’t take my kids somewhere.”
Pineda also noted that he did not support what the schools were teaching and believed they would learn better by being around him at work. The third was that he felt online teaching would blow up soon and become insanely preferable to many people.
Clearly, in agreement, Tiesi wrote, “My exact feels.., I will 100% be homeschooling.”
