Marques Houston Welcomes His First Child

Actor and musician Marques Houston welcomed his first child. He and his wife, Miya Dickey, became parents to a beautiful baby girl named Zara.

The couple tied the knot in August 2020. They have faced public backlash due to their age difference. Some alleged that Houston started dating Dickey when she was still 15. However, the singer said these accusations were false. He made a statement via Instagram post that read,

This is not music or television, this is my family, my future wife, and my life. We have [our God] Jehovah’s blessing. So to all the rumors about me, none of it is true! And that’s the story. No twists, no turns, no scandals, just true love. There is nothing that can come to light because there’s no darkness in my life.”
