Bossip got the chance to sit down with Lil’ Wayne’s first baby mama, Toya Carter, mother of their daughter Reginae, and star of BET’s hit show, “Tiny & Toya.” She discussed her new man, Lil’ Wayne’s baby mamas, and her plans for the future.
Are you still with James Hardy? People said you made tweets that made them think y’all weren’t together?
James is a great person.
You say that you don’t like drama and get along with all of Wayne’s baby mamas. Has it always been that way, and what was your first reaction to them?
Dwayne has not always had “Baby mamas.” This is something new for me, but we are making a conscious effort to change the stereotype of baby mamas. We get a long great! We don’t have any reason not to. It’s about the kids at this point and I love all of them.
Anymore kids for you soon?
I would love to have another kid but not in the near future.
You care a lot about your image. Now that you’re in the spotlight more, how hard is it to balance being a mother and a reality star?
I won’t pretend it’s easy. Being in the Spotlight now, I have found that my motherly skills are getting stronger. I can see more clearly now the things I need to protect her from and prepare her for. Reginae and I have a great relationship. We spend lots of time together.

There is a video out with you dancing at a Halloween party looking a little scandalous. How did that happen?
I’m not a scandalous person and I don’t pretend to be square. I go out and have fun like most people my age…I’m at a Growth stage in my life and right now I’m learning that people would try to twist the truth until it looks like something else…it was Halloween and I was just having fun!
