I'm sure it's uncomfortable when the ex gets a phone call from his ex-wife's new beau saying that he wants to meet him. And, I'm sure it's doubly uncomfortable when the new guy is waiting to hear the response. This isn't the plot of a movie, this was the real-life exchange of Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds when Hall of Famer, Deion Sanders called to talk about now girlfriend and ex-wife of Babyface, Tracey Edmonds.
During a recent episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter,"
Babyface opened up about his friendship with his ex-wife and his feelings on her new relationship with Sanders.
"I knew that Deion, Mr. Prime Time, seems like a nice guy," Babyface says. "But he became a classy guy when he called me and said he didn't want to meet my children until he sat down and had lunch or breakfast with me, so he knew me before he met my children."
Sanders, who stars in the upcoming OWN reality series "Deion's Family Playbook,"
recently sat down with Babyface to have a man-to-man conversation.
"Deion's a good guy," Babyface says. "Tracy's a good girl. She's the mother of my children and we have a great relationship and we live to make sure our children are happy.
Babyface continues and says, "I reached my hand out because Tracey's family, so I want to make sure that she's good. And I know she wants to make sure that I'm good."
This is an amazing picture of what grown men do. I have the utmost respect for Sanders and Edmonds for handling this the way that they did.
