T.I., Tiny and family are photographed arriving at La Guardia airport in New York City.
“I just want to have a lot of different artists to play at my reception — maybe Mariah [Carey], Mary [J. Blige]. I have tons of ideas!” So what makes it the right time to get hitched for the “Live Your Life” rapper
, 29, and former Xscape singer, 34, who have a blended family of five children? “It’s just been time overdue,” says Tiny, who says the wedding will take place “sometime soon” this year. ”We’ve been together for eight years. We know what we have and who we are. He knows everything about me. I know everything about him. And he’s hot!” Tiny says that her co-star Toya will be in the wedding (“She’s one of my bridesmaids and I will have many other ones”) and that T.I., recently released after serving time on weapons charges, will appear on the show
this season. “Once he got a chance to sit down and really watch it when he was locked up, he was impressed and thought the show was really good,” says Tiny. “You’ll see a little more of him — there are some surprises.” And what’s it like to have T.I. home again? “Oh man, it’s great!” she gushes. “The kids are loving it. They take over, so I just fall back and get my time in when I can!”
