Black gay dads Kordale and Kaleb break up, call off engagement
Kordale Lewis and Caleb Anthony, who up until now were simply referred to as Kordale & Kaleb, lit up Instagram as the “hot gay dads” after a viral image of the two fathers doing their daughters’ hair went viral.
The couple is now breaking up and have called off their engagement.
“My love for them will always prevail even if ‘Daddy’ and I are no longer together,” Anthony said of his three children, Desmiray, Malia and Kordale Jr. “Truthfully, they are the ONLY reason I am sad to leave and move on.”
Anthony continued on to say that he would still be “Pop” to his kids despite “this screwed up situation that has recently transpired between their dad and me.”
“You should never have to question your worth or [compromise] your morals when you’re with your soulmate; it doesn’t work out that way … I am happy to be ‘Caleb’ again.”
“I still love him,” Anthony said. “I’m willing to start over with MYSELF and find who I really am.”
He admitted that he was not the only one at fault in the breakup but expressed frustration just the same. “I cannot sit here and act like I was not part of the demise of ‘KordalenKaleb,’ but at no point do I or anyone else deserve to be disrespected the way I was and to continue it on while we’re together as a family on vacation,” he pointed out.
Kordale & Kaleb even captured the attention of Nikon, which added the family to its “I Am Generation” ad campaign in early 2015.
Nikon released a statement to Page Six today saying, “We are aware of the news and wish the best to Kordale, Kaleb and their entire family. We were happy to have them participate in our campaign and there were no plans to extend marketing efforts with any of the featured participants.”
