Tiffany Haddish Wants Common To Buy Her an Apartment Building Instead of Engagement Ring

Share on Facebook

Tiffany Haddish made an engagement request to her boyfriend Common that was rather peculiar, and he thought she was crazy for it.

But, when you think about it, it does kinda make sense…

Tiffany Haddish, an American standup comedian, actress, and author, asked her boyfriend, Common, an American rapper and actor to propose to her with an apartment building.

Yep, you heard that right… a building, not a ring.

The forty-one-year-old comedian, who pursued a career in comedy after always trying to make her mom laugh, once saying to Complex: “I would try to make my mom laugh, because if she was laughing she wasn’t hitting,” has everything planned out for her future.

And, don’t get us wrong, that’s one heck of a request to make by anyone’s financial standards…

But, the girl’s got brains, and she’s most certainly thinking ahead.

Talking on the SmartLess podcast with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett on Monday, the Girls Trip star expressed her desire to be able to give her kids something much bigger than a $2,000 or $3,000 engagement ring.

Now, normally, when it’s time to pop the question that makes your heart pound repeatedly, you usually expect to be slipping a ring onto your soul mate’s finger, after they’ve said yes, of course…

Because, otherwise, that would be a little awkward, wouldn’t it?

But, if and when Common proposes to Haddish, he’ll be presenting her with a whole building, instead.

“If he decides he wants to marry me, cool. I don’t want a ring, I want an apartment building,” she said to the hosts.

“You know how they like to present you with a ring, I want him to present me with a deed to a duplex or a thirty-six-plex,” she said.

And, when Common said she’s “crazy for that”, she gave a pretty logical response.

“No, I’m not crazy, I’m smart because marriage is a union of 2 businesses, and the whole point of coming together is to grow yourselves but also grow a family and make sure they have something to inherit,” she continued.

“If you get an apartment building that will increase in value, the children will always be able to to go to school, and if we get sick or something, we’ll have something to cash out, and be able to take care of ourselves.”

“Come at me with a deed baby, don’t come at me with a ring,” she then insisted.

And it really isn’t a bad plan. In fact, it’s pretty excellent if you ask us.

She deserves all the buildings in the world to be honest…

Because all the success that’s come Haddish’s way was all a result of her dedication to pushing toward her goals, and her ability to light up any room she’s in with laughter.

Doing it all on her own, too…

When Haddish was just a nine-year-old girl, her mom was diagnosed with a mental illness after a car crash, resulting in the comedian entering into the foster care system.

She was also homeless for a while, living in her car after she’d graduated from high school.

And, when the young stand-up comedian was attending comedy camp, Kevin Hart changed her entire life.

“Kevin Hart said, ‘You can’t be living in your car on these streets,'” Haddish remembered vividly. “He gave me 300 bucks and was like ‘Find yourself a place for the week. And then write out a list of goals of what you want to do then start accomplishing those goals,'”, according to Complex.

But, she didn’t just find a place for the week, she put down a deposit on an apartment.

And, although it’s certain that, without Kevin, Haddish would have had the drive to achieve great things…

He really did give her the jump-start she needed, because she had nobody else to help her along with life.

And now, she’s mapping out financial security for her future children so that she can give them what she didn’t have growing up.

So, you see, Haddish wanting a building instead of a ring is quite an amazing idea, really, because she’s getting ready for what’s to come.

“I do want to adopt, because I wish someone would have adopted me and taught me a better way, so I want to do that for somebody else,” she disclosed to the hosts of the SmartLess podcast.

Let’s hope Common sees just how beneficial proposing with a building can really be for their future!
