After announcing on the Love and Hip Hop New York reunion show that she was expecting her sixth child with husband Karl Dagan earlier this year, singer Lil’ Mo shared that she actually miscarried in February.
“just now i watched the #LHHNY reunion and we were hype to share that we were expecting what would be baby #6 for me. thank you for all the congrats and well wishes. regretfully we lost the baby on Feb 6! BUT all is well,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “God has bigger plans and I know when the time is right, there will be another one!!”
Many people connected with the “Superwoman” singer’s situation and provided encouragement to her in the wake of her loss. That’s probably why a number of those same people were confused when the 42-year-old was seen talking about that loss in the context of someone else making a crude statement about wishing they’d kept their baby since the summer wasn’t as eventful as hoped. Mo, real name Cynthia Loving, said “FACTS” in response to the utterance and revealed that she was supposed to be due in the next few weeks:
When people caught wind of Mo’s comments, there was understandably quite a bit of confusion and annoyance over them. Was she saying she actually had an abortion? Was she just making a poor joke? Was this just her way of coping with her loss?
She soon clarified on Twitter that she wasn’t, in any way, claiming to have had an abortion, but was just ruminating out loud over the fact that the child she lost was due in the summer.
Mo has spoken about having to get an abortion in the past. When she left her relationship with ex-husband Phillip Bryant, she told The Breakfast Club in 2014 that he was doing sneaky things to try and get her pregnant in the hopes that it would salvage their marriage.
“I had to get an abortion,” she said. “He just tried to get me pregnant and do dumb stuff so he could have me locked in. I had to because my son wasn’t even 1. So just like health reasons, because I had a Cesarean and it was just like there was too much scar tissue. They were like, ‘You’ll die.'”
But when it comes to this most recent pregnancy with Dagan, she says there’s no doubt that it’s something she wanted very much and is hopeful for a future rainbow baby.
