The reality TV star made her preference known during an episode of her trending podcast Spill With Phyna which had her colleague, Tacha as a guest.

She expressed concerns about potential “baby mama drama” and recalled seeing cases in which the baby’s mother causes drama and problems for the man.

Phyna said; “I am not sure I can date a guy that has a child. I’ve met two guys who have children, these are my friends and I’ve seen the drama around it. I’ve seen situations where the baby mama will come and be like ‘who are you now leaving me for?

The stress is more than when a girl has a child and it’s more chaotic with guys. Even if the men don’t like you, even if they don’t want to settle down with you, the baby mama just doesn’t want them to move on.”
