Tammy Rivera’s husband isn’t her baby daddy, but he and her daughter have an adorable relationship.
Juaquin Malphurs aka Waka Flocka Flame, Tammy Rivera’s longtime spouse, is not the biological father of her adolescent daughter, Charlie Rivera.
Rivera’s daughter was around six years old when she met Flocka for the first time in Miami in 2011. When they first started dating, her child’s presence had no bearing on their relationship.
They married lawfully three years later, in 2014, with no formal ceremony. If the couple’s marriage lasted until their fifth anniversary, they vowed to reaffirm their vows in a lavish ceremony.
Their marriage reached the five-year mark, as expected, despite a temporary break-up in 2016 due to Waka’s infidelity. Rivera and her husband repeated their wedding vows in a traditional ceremony on a Mexican beach in January 2019 after recovering from the event.
The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star is accessorized with a 5-carat diamond ring and 3-carat wedding bands from Zuhair Murad’s 2018 bridal collection. Her husband wore a white tuxedo with a red bow tie and matching shoes.
Rivera’s 15-year-old daughter was also present at the wedding and shared the delight with her parents.
Relationship of Daughter with Baby Daddy and Husband
Brian Williams is Rivera’s father. Before marrying Waka, the 34-year-old was in a relationship with Williams, with whom she had a daughter, Charlie, on July 1, 2005.
According to Williams’ Instagram, Charlie spent her childhood with both her father and mother following their divorce. She has been seen at the beach and having fun with her biological father.
In the days ahead, though, her stepfather became the ultimate father figure.
Waka reared Charlie as if he were his biological child. He even had Charlie’s face tattooed on his arms. Rivera was quick to express her joy in an Instagram post. The tattoo was photographed and published by a mixed-race TV celebrity. Then she wrote in the post that labeling her husband “a stepfather” was an insult because he lavished unselfish love on their kid.
When they performed a dance on Charlie’s Quinceanera, a celebration of her 15th birthday, the father-daughter combination charmed hearts with their relationship.
Charlie had asked her parents before the Quinceaera if her partner may accompany her to the party. Her parents, particularly her stepfather, were supportive of her decision.
The television series Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka does chronicles the Rivera family’s daily lives. Their romance has previously been shown on WE TV’s Marriage Boot Camp and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
