Moore is excited and grateful for this new addition to his life but does vulnerably admit he was worried that having a child may not happen for him. “I thought, maybe that ship had sailed, and, you know, God had my back and things lined up. …My life is pretty grand, but I know once God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”
We’re sending him love and support and can’t wait to see the baby and Moore in the leading role as a father.
