Actor Shemar Moore is officially a father.
A rep of the 52-year-old actor said in a statement, “Shemar Moore and his partner, Jesiree Dizon are happy to announce the birth of their baby girl. The family is very happy and healthy.”
Earlier this month, we reported that Moore and Dizon revealed that they are expecting their first child together with a gender reveal. This child is Dizon’s second one. She has a child from a previous relationship with actor Stephen Bishop.
While doing an interview with Jennifer Hudson, he spoke about the baby’s due date having a special meaning.
“I’m Shemar Moore, 52 ½ years old. My mother is in heaven, right now it’ll be the three-year anniversary on February 8th,” he said. “And on February 8th, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true because, in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy.”
Hudson congratulated him and he went on to say, “I’m so excited. I’m sorry she can’t be here. I was worried for a while that it was a ‘that ship has sailed’, kind of thing but God had my back, and things lined up.”
Before ending the interview, Moore added, “It’s going to be the best part of… My life is already pretty grand, but I know whenever God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
