Likewise, there's little to no evidence that Marc got married to her, but he is a divorced man.
In an interview with ebony.com in 2012, Marc Lamont talked about co-parenting his daughter but didn't reveal the identity of his ex-wife. When the interviewer asked,
"You became a single father when you were working on your dissertation. How do you balance parenthood with being a professor, a lecturer, and a television show host?"
His response was:-
“I don't like the term single father. I think that whatever your relationship status, whenever two people are parenting it's co-parenting. I've been fortunate enough to co-parent my daughter in healthy and functional ways. It shows there are multiple ways to raise a healthy child. Because my schedule is demanding my daughter’s mother has been flexible, and I'm grateful for that. Sometimes I have to be creative to make it work. I'm sure my daughter has been to more TV studios and lectures than she'd have liked to be but even those moments create opportunities to bond with her and that means everything. Our children deserve our attention and our love, it's one of those beautiful struggles.”
He and his then-wife separated on amicable terms. The ex-couple has been successful in co-parenting their daughter together. Thanks to his flexible ex-wife, Marc managed to put in a considerate effort when he was too busy with his work.
Maybe he has been dating his secret girlfriend; perhaps he is a single guy, only time will tell.
Nevertheless, Marc seems to enjoy looking after his daughter, who attended the first day of high school not that long ago. His hands-on principle was on full display when he dropped his daughter off at her school.

From dressing her daughter up for her first day in high school to attending her school's talent show, Marc seems to have mastered the motherly instincts otherwise performed by his ex-wife or a girlfriend.
Much like him, his daughter is also a staunch supporter of gay rights. Marc couldn't contain his happiness when he first learned about it. He tweeted:-
"My daughter just texted me, saying "Gay people can get married now!!!!" Her excitement made me as happy as the decision itself."
Nobody can't tell Marc that he hasn't didn't his daughter the right way.

Stauch Gay Supporter Fired From CNN For His UN Speech
Less than 24-hours after delivering his infamous UN Speech, political commentator Marc got fired by CNN on 30th November 2018 amidst an outcry of protests from the right-wing defenders of Israel.
In his speech, the Pennsylvania native had used the phrase "free Palestine from the river to the sea" -- a slogan regularly used by anti-Israel terror groups including Hamas.
Following his speech, he received widespread backlash for indulging in the act of "dog whistling." Critics have accused him of advocating for the eradication of Israel -- an accusation, Marc has denied vehemently.
Temple University - Marc's employer where he works as a professor of Media studies & Urban education - however, didn't fire him claiming that the political commentators' views were his own.
Less than a week after his speech at the United Nations assembly, on 4th December 2018, Marc issued an apology via an op-ed in Philadelphia Inquirer.
In it, the former CNN personality acknowledged the need to respond to the controversy surrounding his remarks. Reiterating his previous stance, he claimed that his comments got drawn out of context as it didn't endorse any form anti-semitism.
The University of Pennsylvania Alum then added:-
“Although this was the furthest thing from my intent, those particular words clearly caused confusion, anger, fear, and other forms of harm. For that, I am deeply sorry.”
In the latter section of the piece, Marc lamented how his choice of words derailed his agenda of highlighting the plight of Palestinians. If anything, his UN Speech - and the subsequent firing from CNN - only helped further his career and boost his repertoire.
Since then, the 40-year-old political commentator has become a member of MESA, attended the University of Virginia as the event's keynote speaker, and discussed the global refugee crisis at the 2019 Doha Debates.
