So, Common has revealed that he and Angela Rye are back together and we’re happy about it.
While promoting his album “Let Love” on the Angie Martinez Show, Common was asked who he was currently dating and he confirmed that he and the CNN political commentator are a thing again.
“We dated and then I had to get myself together and she was doing some work. She’s a strong cookie, but she’s good people and really a good balance and fun, too. I need a partner who is fun because we go out there and do the work and constantly, I’m living out the things I’m passionate about. But so many times I’m talking about the things that are going on in the world, serious things in life, so I just need somebody that’s like, we can just talk and have fun.”
Meanwhile on an episode of OWN’s Black Women OWN The Conversation, Angela opened up about motherhood.
“I went through a breakup that was life-shaking for me a year ago,” shared Rye. “At the same time I was going through the breakup, I was going through the process of freezing my eggs.”
“For a moment, as soon as I froze my eggs, I was like, ‘I’m good. I don’t need these fools at all.”
But God had other plans. Angela’s view of motherhood changed after moving her godsons into her home.
“After my godson’s moved in, I was like, ‘This might actually be more rewarding than any speech I’ve ever given, than any book I could ever write, than any opportunity to mentor anyone,’” Rye explained. “I feel like just them being around, I’ve grown as a person. I think that is truly a lesson you can only learn on a motherhood journey.”
