Sierra And Eric’s Love & Hip Hop Journey
Sierra Gates met Eric Whitehead outside of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ sometime before the tenth iteration of the reality show.

Despite Sierra’s significant onscreen presence, he did not appear much on the show; however, throughout the tenth season, she seemed pretty content and happily in love with him.
Furthermore, Sierra didn’t shy away from calling Eric “the one” in front of the camera during the show. The couple went to Dubai with most of their fellow cast members, where she told him that she wanted to have a baby with him, and he appeared to be totally on board with that idea. In the summer of 2021, Eric bought Sierra a luxurious mansion in Atlanta as well.
In a May 2022 interview with BET, Sierra disclosed earlier details about her relationship with Eric and how they came together. “I brought my truck from him and looked at his page after — God was like, this is your husband,” she revealed. The reality star added, “I know that sounds a little crazy (laughs), but once he delivered that truck, we’ve been together ever since.”
Both Sierra and Eric live in Atlanta, Georgia, and their relationship status has long been an intriguing topic of discussion among fans. Given their popularity among fans, many wonder if they got married or had kids in secret. At the same time, due to the rocky and shaky histories of their previous relationships, it is natural for viewers to have a few doubts about their future as a couple.
