With the return of Black Love on OWN, Friday, May 14th, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the Season 5 couples.
Dretona & Keith
Years married: 29
Residence: Riverside, CA
What we love about them: Keith was born to a teenage mom and Dretona grew up in foster care. When they married after knowing each other less than a year, they were immediately pregnant. They admit to not being emotionally ready but they were ready to create the stable, loving home they didn’t have growing up. They went on to have three biological children and adopt three more. We fell in love with them and so will you!
Memorable Black Love quote:
Keith: “I was accustomed to just being us. And then not long after that, now we have a child that is coming. I had to mentally adjust, because it’s something that I wasn’t planning.”
Dretona: “And I, I don’t want to say my, the, the nicknames that I have for my children. But – I’m gonna tell you. He calls my kids Oops, Darn, and Oh Well. That’s what he used to call my kids.”
