His little princess arrived early! THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm) and his girlfriend, model Jeisree Dizon, have welcomed a daughter, less than two weeks after the actor announced that he was preparing to become a father for the first time at the age of 52. “Ya boy is officially a dad!” Moore raved on Instagram. “Dreams come true! The rest of my life is here!”
The couple first shared the news of their daughter’s birth with People, with a rep for the S.W.A.T. star sharing, “Shemar Moore and his partner, Jesiree Dizon, are happy to announce the birth of their baby girl. The family is very happy and healthy.”
Moore and Dizon publicly revealed her pregnancy earlier this month with an Instagram video of their gender reveal party, in which the couple found out that the baby she was carrying was a girl. At the time, Moore revealed that they planned to name their daughter Frankie, but there has been no confirmation whether the new parents opted for another moniker for their daughter.
The former Y&R star first announced that he was preparing to be a father during a taping of THE JENNIFER HUDSON SHOW, which will air on Jan. 26. During his chat with Hudson, Moore excitedly admitted that the timing of his child’s due date was serendipitous, as it coincided with the date that he lost his beloved mother, Marilyn. “My mother is in heaven right now. It’ll be the three-year anniversary on February 8,” Moore said. “And on February 8, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true. Because in real life, on February 8, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy!”
Dizon gave birth more than two weeks ahead of her due date, but we are glad to hear that both mom and daughter are doing well. While the baby girl is Moore’s first child, the couple’s blended family includes Dizon’s 5-year-old daughter, Charli, and her teenage son Kaiden. Please join us in sharing our congratulations to Moore and Dizon on the birth of their daughter!
