Say it ain’t so. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore and her husband, Marc Daly, have announced they are getting divorced after just two years of marriage. The former couple also welcomed their first child together, daughter Brooklyn, less than a year ago in November 2018.
“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” the 48-year-old mother revealed to Us Weekly in a statement. “Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”
Her 46-year-old partner also issued his own statement to the publication as well. “I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time. Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible.”
The businessman also addressed the prospect of coparenting with his ex, as well as the potential for unfounded rumors at such a tumultuous time for their family.
“I cherish our family’s good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits,” he concluded. “Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”
Believe it or not, Kenya and Marc were spotted together just the other day on September 17, when the then-couple attended a benefit reception Marc hosted to honor the Black Man Lab at the Wimbish House in Atlanta. Just a day prior to that, the couple and baby Brooklyn were seen together in NYC attending an episode of The Tamron Hall Show, which marked their first TV appearance as a family.
Marc even gushed on the talk show that Kenya was “the love of my life” as they discussed their long and laborious IVF process, which was difficult for the RHOA babe. “It’s incredibly challenging because the success rate for these these treatments are very low,” he said. “There’s expectations, but you also have to be prepared for disappointed. So just being there, being supportive, being hopeful, being positive and just being behind her was what it’s all about.”
