Hollywood hunk Shemar Moore, 52, is a successful actor known for various roles across TV. Many know him from his appearances on the hit soap The Young and the Restless or from playing Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds. However, when Shemar is not busy working on the set of hit shows, he often spends time with his loved ones. Now, he’ll spend time with his newborn baby because Shemar is a dad!
“Ya boy is officially a Dad!!” he posted to Instagram in the early hours of Jan. 25, right after PEOPLE broke the news that he and his girlfriend, Jesiree Dizon, 39, welcomed their first child together. ” Dreams come true!! The rest of my life is here!” he added to IG. PEOPLE noted that the happy couple “welcomed a baby girl,” adding to the growing list of A-listers giving birth in 2023. Both baby and mother are “happy and healthy,” reported the outlet – but who is the mother of Shemar’s first child? And who has he dated in the past? Let’s find out.
Shemar’s Current GF, Jesiree Dizon
Jesiree Dizon is a professional model, signed with several agencies — Wilhelmina Models, MGM Germany, Renew Artists Hawaii, and NTA Talent – per her Instagram bio. She has also dabbled in some acting, according to an IMDB attributed to her. Shemar’s new love has appeared in the 2018 film, Solver, along with making an appearance in the Netflix series Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love. Some of the other hit shows she has appeared on include the cult classic True Blood, Hawaii Five-0, and CSI: NY.
She is also a makeup artist behind the @J_birdbeauty Instagram profile. “Beauty isn’t just about how you look, it’s about how you feel,” reads the profile, along with ways to book her for your glam squad.
While this new child is Demar’s first foray into fatherhood, Jesiree is already well-versed in being a mom. She shares a 5-year-old daughter named Charli with actor Stephen Bishop, according to PEOPLE. Jesiree also has a 16-year-old son, Kaiden, from a previous relationship.
The gorgeous mom often shares all about her kids via her Instagram account, as she did on Nov. 27, 2022. Jesiree took to the social media platform to share a birthday tribute post for her daughter. “5 years ago you came into my life and changed it in a way I never knew I needed…. And I’m glad I never have to know what life is like without you again,” she captioned the sweet clip.
Their Baby Announcement
The coming years will surely be exciting for Shemar and Jesiree, as the S.W.A.T. star officially announced the news of their bundle of joy on Jan. 9, 2023. Shemar sat down with actress Jennifer Hudson, 41, on her talk show, The Jennifer Hudson Show, and told her and the world the marvelous news. “So, I’m Shemar Moore. 52 and a half years old,” he began. “My mother [Marilyn Joan Wilson-Moore] is in heaven right now. It’ll be the three-year anniversary [of her death] on Feb. 8, and on Feb. 8, I’m going to make one of her dreams come true. Because in real life, Shemar Moore is about to be a daddy.”
Later that day, the dad-to-be took to Instagram to share a video from the gender reveal party that he and Jesiree hosted. “Mama’s smiling from Heaven… Miracles happen … Here comes the BEST part of my life,” he captioned the clip. During the party, a helicopter flew over their loved ones and shot out pink-colored powder to signal that the duo was expecting a baby girl. Toward the end of the clip, the ecstatic expecting parent held up a green t-shirt with the words “Girl Dad” written across it.
During the video, Shemar also hinted at the then-unborn child’s name. “It’s either going to be Legend, little homie, or it’s going to be Frankie, little baby girl,” he said.
His Ex Anabelle Acosta & Others
Aside from his romance with Jesiree, Shemar has been linked to other beauties in the entertainment industry over the years. Prior to getting involved with the expecting mom, Shemar was linked to Quantico actress Anabelle Acosta, 35. Shemar and Anabelle dated from 2018 until their split in 2021, according to Distractify. The S.W.A.T. alum later sat down on the Steve show with Steve Harvey in 2019 to chat about his then-girlfriend.
Their first date was at the 2018 GRAMMY Awards after Shemar hunted her email down to ask her out, he revealed to Steve. “She said to me, ‘Whatever the attraction is, the interest is there, but let’s work on being friends… Let’s get to know each other. Let’s vibe it out. Let’s not speed through it because you are cute, I am cute,’” he said at the time. Prior to his romance with Anabelle, the talented man was linked to soccer player Shawna Gordon, 32, along with Instagram model Lauren R. Wood.
