On a recent episode of the Bravo series, Kenya shared that co-sleeping with her newborn took a toll on the intimacy she shares with her husband.
Kenya Moore Reveals Co-Sleeping and Her Pregnancy Body Affected Her Marriage
“The baby has changed so much in our lives. She’s in the bed all the time,” she shared.
“He does not want me to put her in a crib. It’s been difficult. We [sleep together] when we can, but it definitely is not as often as I would like.”
This vulnerable moment led haters to share all of their opinions. Some said this is a relationship red flag, while others attacked Kenya for valuing sex over motherhood.
The couple’s intimacy issues, though, appeared to have begun before baby even arrived. In the episode, Moore says that her husband, Marc Daly, had issues with her pregnancy body.
“Maybe when I was about 6 months, 7 months, he just started getting really freaked out about my belly growing,” Moore said to Kandi Burruss on the show. “He thought it was kind of awkward.”
Kenya Moore and Husband Marc Daly Announced Separation in September
In September, Kenya revealed that she and her husband Marc were separating.
“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” she said in a statement to People. “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.“
At the time, Daly issued his own statement to the same outlet, saying:
“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. 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. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”– Marc Daly
