KENYA Moore held back tears when she revealed her sex life suffered because she and her now-estranged husband Marc Daly co-slept with their daughter.
On this week's Real Housewives Of Atlanta episode, Kenya, 48, confessed to Porsha Williams, 38, that she and Marc hadn't been intimate for some time because they slept in the same bed with their 13-month-old Brooklyn Doris.
"The baby has changed so much in our lives," the Real Housewife told her friend prior to Cynthia Bailey's annual cookout.
"She's in the bed all the time. He does not want me to put her in her crib."
Kenya admitted she and Marc don't have sex "as often as she would like," prompting her pal to look at her incredulously and ask exactly how long it's been.
"Girl, I'm not even going to say that number," Kenya replied.
Porsha suggested that she and Marc have "got to connect sexually" in order to repair their marriage, to which Kenya agreed.
"I agree, we've gotta do better than that. I just don't like where we are right now," she told Porsha, who recently got re-engaged to her fiancé Dennis McKinley after news of his infidelity surfaced earlier this year.
Kenya and Marc's marital woes began look before baby Brooklyn entered the picture, as viewers saw on last week's RHOA episode.
The first-time mom admitted to Kandi Burruss, 43, that there are "no holds barred" when Marc sometimes gets upset and compared his anger to an "alter ego" that comes out.
"I feel like we love each other but this thing just…just gets nasty sometimes and I don't want that," she tearfully told Kandi.
"And I don't want it for Brooklyn. I've waited my whole life for her and I will – I was that little girl who was never protected and I want to protect her."
She added "the communication is not where it should be" between her and Marc.
Their separate living situations – Kenya in Atlanta and Marc in New York City – made it difficult for the new parents to spend time with each other baby-free.
Kenya celebrated their second wedding anniversary solo with Brooklyn because Marc refused to get a nanny and ultimately canceled on the trip to Turks & Caicos.
The couple announced their separations in individual statements to People shortly after clocking two years together in September.
"It is profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly," wrote Kenya.
"Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and always will be my daughter Brooklyn, my miracle baby."
Marc also spoke on the "difficult" decision and cautioned that any falsehoods spread about their relationship would be "addressed through counsel as the law permits."
Both asked for the public to respect their privacy during the ongoing divorce proceedings.
Despite their rocky relationship, Kenya hopes that she and her estranged hubby will eventually resolve their issues and reconcile.
"I didn't get married to quit," she told People in October.
"I believe in for better and for worse and I believe in trying it all before you walk away, especially when we do have a child and we are a family."
