Son & Married Life
Tyra became a father at the young age of 17. Still a high schooler at the time, the reality star tried hard to provide for her son, Jeremiah. Although the next step was to get married to her baby mama Cynthia, Tyra figured out her gay sexuality after high school. Thus, the pair didn’t tie the knot but remained on good terms.
When Cynthia couldn’t take custody of their son, Tyra looked after Jeremiah alone during the time. But, there was trouble in the co-parents’ paradise in 2015. Cynthia claimed that the reality star was a dead beat dad and didn’t provide for the family.

The claim was in stark contrast from Tyra’s portrayal of her relationship with her son during her time as a participant at RuPaul's Drag Race. In 2012, she even embarked on the journey to make a documentary titled Drag Dad about her father-son relationship with Jeremiah.
Although the reality star never spoke about the dead beat dad allegations, things seemed sunny in 2017. Tyra tweeted about becoming a dad for the second time, but she didn’t reveal any information about her growing family, beyond that.
Talking about Tyra’s dating life, she keeps her personal life a secret. However, in 2010, she mentioned a boyfriend but didn’t reveal her beau's further information.
