Curtis’ Secret Second Pregnancy
Curtis did everything in her power to hide the news from the Medias and was extremely private about her second pregnancy with son Harper. According to The Detroit News, currently, she is in a custody battle over with the kid’s father, Shane Maguire.
Curtis made the public announcement about her second pregnancy in 2015, after much speculation.

Curtis is accused of Hiding Her younger Son Harper From His Father Maguire
Curtis and her ex-boyfriend, Shane Maguire are locked in a nasty custody battle for their son, Harper, for over one and half years. And the problem is getting progressively worse rather than approaching a light at the end of the tunnel.
Maguire filed the sixth motion against Curtis, in April 2017, claiming that she is keeping him from meeting his son, despite the court ordered visits.
Talking with E!, Maguire’s lawyers said:
“Nicole has denied Shane parenting time… Nicole Curtis has been sanctioned by the court more than once for violating parenting time and for violating the judge and the court’s orders.”
According to court paper files, Curtis claimed that their son Harper is sick and thus unable to fly. It seems something she has done to avoid taking Harper to his father.
“If [Curtis] did not want a young child to be on an airplane, she should not have moved from Minnesota to Michigan just days after the birth of Harper, they added.”
Maguire reported that he also took a plane ticket to meet his son in March 2017. But Curtis told that she and Harper would be in Atlanta that weekend and she has not responded to any of Maguire’s claims.
