Kalonji and I met in September 2001 and it was all over from then on out! As we got to know each other, we decided our worlds would not be the same without the other and got married on New Year’s Eve 2001.
My name came from an episode of the Six Million Dollar Man. The episode is titled Taneha. Lee Majors and Jess Walton (of Young and the Restless fame), are hunting down a wild cougar named Taneha. The episode aired about 3 weeks before I was born and my motherreally liked the name. However, somehow, I have a “y” in my name instead of an “h”.
KALONJI’s name originates from Central Africa and means “Man of Victory”. He was named for one of his ancestor’s whose name meant “Champion”.
We have a daughter together, Kaleya, and Kalonji has four sons from previous relationships – Kamau, Miles, Jihad & Qacheyta. Visit the kids pages to learn more about them.
