The actor did not think he would ever become a father, but then at the age of 52 years old, he finally realized a dream he always had in his heart…


A few weeks ago, actor Shemar Moore finally revealed to the public that he was going to be a first-time father. He made the announcement when he appeared on Jennifer Hudson’s talk show.

The actor told a smiling Jennifer Hudson, “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,” he said. “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.”


His mother Marilyn Joan Wilson-Moore passed away on February 8, 2020, and had been suffering from Multiple Sclerosis for the last few years of her life.

Moore even shocked Hudson with the announcement. The host said, “That is news. And your mama gonna be so proud smiling at you from heaven.”

After making the announcement, he seemed beside himself with glee at the prospect of finally becoming a father. He said, “I was worried for a while that maybe that ship had sailed kind of thing, and, you know, God had my back and things lined up. …My life is pretty grand but I know once God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”

Later the actor shared a clip on his Instagram account for the gender reveal party they had for him and his girlfriend Jesiree Dizon.

Moore was never shy about expressing his wish to be a father. In 2017 during an interview he said, “I want to be a family man. I want to be a father, I want to have a partner in crime, a woman to share [my life] with. I want to continue to evolve, I want to continue to take the next step in my life. In my personal life.”

And now he has realized his dream. It was confirmed to sources that he welcomed his daughter along with his girlfriend Jesiree Dizon. And of course, the proud papa was quick to post his bundle of joy’s picture on social media.

He posted a sweet shot of him holding his baby girl with the caption, “FRANKIE MOORE!!!! BABY GIRL in da building!!!” he captioned the pic. “Born January 24… at 3:38pm…. 7.1 Pounds… 20 inches…. 10 fingers n 10 toes… Already THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!!”

He continued, “I’m a Girl Daddy!!!! HOLY S**T!!! DREAMS COME TRUE!!” Moore continued. “Grandma Marilyn is in heaven puff puff passing, drinking her wine, and doing her happy dance… I LOVE and MISS YOU everyday Mom.” 

He ended the post with, “Frankie is gonna grow up to be a KILLA!!! Watch out World, here comes ‘Frankie Muthaf**kin Moore’!!!!”

Congratulations to Sheemar Moore and Jesiree Dizon on welcoming a beautiful baby. We are sending all our well wishes to this young family.
