Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins couldn’t be happier for her TLC “sister.”
The “No Scrubs” chart-topper said she had “never seen so happy” Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas since she started dating Matthew Lawrence.
“Take it from your brother. T-Boz, 52, told People at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Monday, trust me—I’ve never seen him like this.
Chilli interrupted, “I’m so happy. He’s the best and he approves.”
The “Waterfalls” singer confirmed with her ’90s icon friend in January, nearly five months after they first ignited the love rumors.
Despite their relatively austere relationship, the “Boy Meets World” actor made headlines earlier this month when he told “Entertainment Tonight” that he and Chilli had a “game plan” to start a family.
Chilli, 52, later revealed that her boyfriend’s comments were taken out of context and actually referred to the family plans of her older brother, Joey Lawrence.
The singer, who is already a mom, said, “They didn’t show that part but when you go there and see the whole interview, you see that she wasn’t talking about us trying to have a baby… because that’s not what happened,” said the singer, who is already a mom. to his 25-year-old son, Tron, who is with his former Dallas Austin – “Ryan Cameron Uncensored” radio show.
The singer did not completely turn off the idea of \u200b\u200bhaving children with the actress, coquettishly telling the radio host that “you never know”.
“I would never say that [I’m done with families]he continued, giving a nervous laugh.
“I should definitely be married… and I’m not married, yet”
Matthew, 43, also revealed that he wasn’t trying to “pressure” his girlfriend with his initial comments.
“When Joe and I were growing up, we were grappling with this plan that we should have kids together. And I missed the first round, and now he’s starting a new family and I was thinking, ‘Man, it would be great if we could do this again when I don’t have a chance to start a family together’.” He told E! News.
“So that’s what I meant. I didn’t want to put any pressure on someone I was dating.
Chilli shares a son with the former songwriter, while Matthew was previously married to Cheryl Burke.
The ex-couple, who had no children in common, said “yes” in 2019 but separated three years later and finalized their divorce in September 2022.
The “Dancing with the Stars” graduate supported her ex when she heard that she hoped to start a family.
“I really, really hope he has a child with Chilli,” he said in the final episode of “The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever With Chris Harrison.”
