Monique, who married Walter Jordan in 2012, had channeled her grief about her 2019 miscarriage into art. On Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in 2019, she shared on Instagram a short dance piece she filmed.
“On August 7, 2019 I had a miscarriage,” the actress wrote at the time. “For the first time in my life, I couldn’t string together eloquent enough words to express what I had been through in a meaningful and impactful way. However, when I learned that 1 in 4 women experiences this devastating and unexplainable loss I knew I couldn’t remain silent. I decided to use the language of dance to say what I couldn’t with words.”
She continued, “I pray that this piece promotes brave conversation & healing and above all makes our spirit baby proud #UNBORNtribute.”
