After several attempts at reconciliation, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore and her estranged husband Marc Daly apparently have agreed to end their marriage once and for all.
Daly broke the news in a statement to The Root. The NYC based restaurateur said that after a recent mediation, the former couple agreed to end their relationship and look forward to “amicably continuing to co-parent our daughter Brooklyn.”
“As always, in addition to perpetual self-improvement, my primary focus will continue to be helping the underserved and people of color in Brooklyn to recover from the negative impact of the COVID – 19 pandemic,” Daly’s statement read. He added, “This focus will take shape through using my restaurant as a ‘Community Hub’ where positive and diverse perspectives on important topics such as economic empowerment, social activism, and political engagement can be highlighted in a safe and productive forum. I’m blessed to be a positive change agent for not just my family but also my community.”
The news comes after Moore gave Bravo boss Andy Cohen an update on their relationship status back in mid-December 2020. “I have not filed for divorce. He did file and withdrew it less than 24 hours later, so we’ve kind of gotten past that,” the former pageant queen told Cohen during an episode of “Watch What Happens Live.” “Right now, Marc is really fighting for his marriage. He wants to go to counseling. He’s made appointments. He’s asking to publicly apologize to me and a lot of things that I never thought I’d see the day.”
Moore and Daly tied the knot in June 2017 and welcomed their daughter a year later. The estranged couple announced their first split back in September 2019 after two years of marriage.
Things seemed to be going well as the two reunited in November to celebrate Brooklyn’s second birthday. Moore shared several photos from the day’s event. Both parties were seen in the snaps smiling and seemingly enjoying themselves. The two spent Thanksgiving together as well.
During season 13 of “RHOATL,” Moore discussed her struggles, including her marriage with Daly and how the COVID-19 has affected her. A representative for Kenya Moore has yet to address the news.
