Cromartie nixes reality show about his 10 kids

New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie recently had his second child with wife Terricka— making it 10 kids from eight women in six states if you're keeping score.

Their little baby boy, Jagger, joins his sister Jurzie and eight other half-siblings from different mothers from around the country— making the brood one player short of a football team.

Now a TV production company wants to create a reality show about the group "trying to co-exist as a modern family," a source told the New York Post.

Most of the baby mamas want to do the show, but Cromartie nixed the idea.

The moms he left behind have banded together so their children— who are living in California, Florida, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey— can bond with each other.

They could call it "Ten is Enough" or "Hard Knocked Up."  How about "Octo-Moms?"

The single mothers hoped to pick up a little extra money to help raise their kids, but they think it's important to "document their journey," said the source.  "They want Antonio's support."

Maybe it would help the 28-year old Cromartie get to know his kids' own names which he famously struggled to remember on HBO's "Hard Knocks" in 2010.  He even forgot one child altogether.

Several of the women, who met the former San Diego Chargers and Jets star while he was playing on and off the field, stay in touch with each other for support.

"We are not catty women.  We have a close, tight-knit friendship and understand what each other's going through," said Ryan Ross who had his fifth child, son Tyler Jae, now 4.  "We reach out to share news about the kids, to talk, to vent."

Cromartie has deflected the plan, blocking any filming of his offspring and his PR rep had no comment.
