Well, she seems much excited to welcome a new family member making their party of five after going through a tragedy of losing a baby. Turns out a few months before the pregnancy announcement, Monique had lost her baby to miscarriage.
She made an emotional confession on the episode of Real Housewives of Potomac where she revealed that she lost the baby while on a visit with Chris to her pastor, Pastor Chad.
During that time the couple had recently moved into a 12,000 square foot home in Potomac. The miscarriage was revealed only a month later in which she expressed that they are still going through the phases of losing their child. She said,
“A little over a month ago, we had a miscarriage. To be honest, I don’t think we fully dealt with it. We have been nonstop.”
Adding to it, she told the audiences,
“As soon as I took the pregnancy test, Chris was grinning from ear to ear. And it never once dawned on me that we would lose it. Until you’ve experienced loss, it’s hard to even put it into words, you know?”
Chirs, who is a former Washington Redskins player, made sure to look after his wife through the tough times. Well, Monique did have the support of her family which includes her husband and two children.
Monique already shares two children - older son, Christopher who is 5 and daughter Milani who is 2, with her husband. They had their first baby after a year of their marriage.
Monique and Chris exchanged their marriage vows in March 2012 in a wedding ceremony. The ceremony took place at the Ronald Reagan building in Washington, D.C.
The couple first met in D. C. and were friends for a long time before being romantically involved.
