Who is the father of Keke Wyatt's 11th baby? Singer says she wants 'one more' child after 'miracle baby'
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA: Keke Wyatt recently welcomed her 11th child in June and she already wants "one more" child. The 40-year-old singer had a boy, named Ke’Zyah Jean Darring, whom she refers to as a “miracle baby” since it was revealed in March that he was diagnosed with a severe genetic disorder called Trisomy 13.
Wyatt had the child with husband Zackariah Darring. Trisomy 13 causes all or a portion of chromosome 13 to appear three times. The disorder is also known as Patau Syndrome. According to Hollywood Unlocked, doctors had warned Wyatt of a risky delivery.
Wyatt was performing at the City Winery on Sunday, March 13, when she opened up on her son’s diagnosis. The singer-songwriter reportedly revealed her son Rahjah’s past battle with leukemia. She said, “When the doctors told me that my son Rahjah had Leukemia cancer … I said, 'Hallelujah.' And recently I found out the doctor say my baby has Trisomy 13.”
The couple also share a son named Ke'Riah David. A clip from an episode of TV One’s ‘Uncensored,’ sees Wyatt speaking on her love of motherhood. She said, “I have 11 children. What was I thinking? I always said when I was a little girl I wanted a lot of children. I used to always say, 'Mommy, I gonna have between 8 and 10.’ Well, I’m at 11 so, we’ll see what the rest brings of life.”
Wyatt went on to add, “I think I’mma do one more. I keep saying, ‘One more, one more,' and I done did one more. That was four kids ago." Keke explained that her love of motherhood keeps her going. She said, “I love being a momma. If it wasn’t a mommy, I don’t think I would be who I am today.”
Wyatt added, “I started my career with a child and I’m still in my career with 11 kids. After they told me, ‘Well, you have a baby. You’re not going to do what you need to do. You can’t travel, and you can’t such and such,’ I said, ‘Ok.’ My mother looked at me in my eyes and said, ‘Baby, you can do whatever you want to do, with or without a baby.'"
Meanwhile, Wyatt married Darring in 2018 after she divorced Michael Ford. The singer has nine children, including one child from her marriage to ex-husband Rahmat Morton. Wyatt had announced her divorce from Ford in September 2017 with a heartfelt Instagram video where she explained how she was eight months pregnant at the time and one of her sons had cancer.
