TIFFANY Haddish got emotional as she discussed her Grammy win with Gayle King in an early morning interview.
The Girls Trip actress, 41, wore patterned pajamas and eye patches as she talked about nabbing Best Comedy Album the night before.
Tiffany scored the gong for her Netflix special, Black Mitzvah, making her the first Black woman to win the award since Whoopi Goldberg in 1986.
Discussing the accolade with Gayle on Tuesday morning, the comedian admitted: "I've been crying ever since I found out.
"I've been crying every 45 minutes since because it's huge. For a woman to get something… it's a man's world, for us to be able to win…"
Tiffany appeared overwhelmed as she went on: "It's not just for me. I've been through so much in my life. I always feel like I have to work so hard – I want to create a generation of work for my family."
The actress broke down in tears when she found out she'd won the Grammy while filming an episode of ABC's Kids Say the Darnedest Things.
After a producer broke the news, she said: “I just won a Grammy? Are you serious? Y’all serious? I really won?”
Wiping away tears, she told the kids: “Can I tell you why I’m crying? It’s a lot of bumpy roads that you cross.
"It’s a lot of times you feel like Well, am I doing the right thing? Is this good enough? Am I good enough? Am I strong enough to do this job?"
She went on: "And you just have to believe in yourself as much as you can, and against all odds you say, ‘You know what, I’ma just put my best foot forward and I’m gonna give the world the best that I got.’
"Anything is possible.”
Tiffany's milestone moment comes after she reportedly shaded Nicki Minaj by branding her "disrespectful" on the exclusive chat app, Clubhouse.
The Like A Boss star was called “the Nicki Minaj of comedy right now” during a talk in the popular app by a fan.
Another fan shot down the comparison, saying Tiffany “shows up on time,” to which the star responded, “And unlike Nicki, I treat everybody with respect and dignity".
The pair fell out back in 2018 MTV VMAs, after Tiffany made a joke about Fifth Harmony when Camila Cabello racked up five nominations.
She dragged Camila's former bandmates by saying: “Those of you watching at home, hi Fifth Harmony!”
While accepting an award, Nicki defended Normani, one of the members of the group during her speech, saying: "Don't be coming for Fifth Harmony because Normani is that b***h!"
Meanwhile, Tiffany – who is dating actor and musician Common – recently revealed she has shed 40 pounds over the past year.
She decided during the pandemic that she wanted to get healthier and work on her food and fitness game and took on a 30-day transformation program in January.
The Self Made actress showed off her weight loss in lingerie while dancing with Common and kissing him in a raunchy Silhouette Challenge video.
