Pop Mom: Famous Gay Dads Kaleb And Kordale Are Expecting Baby Number 5! Hmmm…
When it comes to gay black dads you won’t find a more famous couple than Kaleb and Kordale who won our hearts a few years ago when a picture of them combing their daughters’ hair went viral. In no time, Nikon swooped them up for an ad campaign featuring them and their three kids in a video just living their daily lives, and their instagram exploded with followers. Just when it seemed like things could get no better, they broke up, sending many of their fans into therapy. Kaleb posted an instagram message that eluded to the fact that Kordale may have been unfaithful- say it ain’t so!- and then like a page out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, they got back together, and to speed things up, now everything is fine and they’re expecting baby number five via a surrogate in the fall. Talk about drama.
While I love when couples work things out, especially when kids are involved, I have to bring up the elephant in the room.
Here are two very popular gay men living in Atlanta, the Black gay capital of the world, with what we strongly speculate to be a history of infidelity. What are the chances that they’re going to stay monogamous? And it’s not that they’re gay that makes me question how faithful they can be, it’s that they’re men. If we accept that men and women are wired differently and men have a harder time being with one person, I’m thinking this family might not make it past sundown and what about the future of those kids?
Curious to get an outside, or perhaps, inside view, I discuss it with Jamal, a gay friend in his 30’s.
He says, “If two people want to be together they will find a way. If they are TRULY committed to each other Big City temptations and social media shouldn’t play a role at all. It’s about the strength of the bond they’ve created. It’s a no brainer to me.”
Devon, another gay friend in his late 40’s isn’t as optimistic.
“Unfortunately,” he says, “the gay culture, especially the young ones, tend not to be monogamous. I choose to be exclusive because I’m not trying to be out there catching any diseases.”
