Criminal Minds actor Shemar Moore becomes a dad for the first time at 52
Criminal Minds actor Shemar Moore has become a dad for the first time.
The actor and his partner welcomed a baby girl together.
A representative for the 52-year-old confirmed the news to People.
"Shemar Moore and his partner, Jesiree Dizon, are happy to announce the birth of their baby girl. The family is very happy and healthy."
The new dad revealed his partner was pregnant just two weeks ago.
He shared the news during an interview on The Jennifer Hudson Show.
He said: “I’m Shemar Moore, 52 and a half years old. My mother is in heaven, right now it’ll be the three-year anniversary on February 8. And on February 8, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true because, in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy.”
Moore said it hurts knowing his mum isn't here to see him become a parent.
However, he said he knows she's there in spirit, especially because his baby girl was due on February 8th, which is her anniversary.
"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.”
“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.”
The couple has not yet revealed the name of their baby girl.
