Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Marc Daly have split, a little over two years after saying their “I dos.”
Moore, 48, and Daly, 49, have been married since June 2017, when they tied the knot in a romantic sunset ceremony on a St. Lucia beach. Their separation comes less than a year after Moore gave birth to their first child, daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly, on Nov. 4, 2018.
In exclusive statements to PEOPLE, both Moore and Daly asked for privacy.
“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” Moore said. “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.”
Daly said, “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. Rumours, 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.”
Daly appeared briefly on RHOA with Moore in season 10 before her exit from the show. She’ll be back for season 12, which is being filmed now.)
In a recent interview, Moore called Daly “the love of my life” as he recounted how he supported her through her long IVF process.
In an exclusive interview about their nuptials in June 2017, Moore told PEOPLE that their bond was nearly instantaneous. The two first met through a mutual friend (and fellow Bravolebrity) Chef Roblé Ali back in June 2016, though they didn’t start dating until December of that year.
Soon after welcoming Brooklyn in December, Moore told PEOPLE that Daly had been a source of strength in her early days of motherhood. It helped that he had experience as a dad already, with two children (one grown and the other a teenager) from a previous relationship.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s next season is expected to premiere before the end of the year.
