American singer and chef Kelis surprised many when she secretly married photographer and real estate mogul Mike Mora in 2014, with the couple welcoming their first child in 2015. 

It is no longer news that American singer and songwriter Kelis secretly got married to Mike Mora, a real estate mogul and photographer, in 2014. 

Since their marriage, many fans have sought to know more about Mora, who keeps a low profile. The photographer has an Instagram account where he posts pictures of himself, his artworks, and his lovely wife. He also has a website for his photography.

Mora's Instagram posts about Kelis tend to show how much he loves and adores her, with evidence of that shown in a 2018 post he made of her.

In another post that he made at the end of February last year, Mora shared a sexy black and white photo of his beautiful wife, captioning it

"Happy wife… Happy life!"


Chef Kelis also appreciates her husband's love for her and her children and showed appreciation to him when she posted a picture of him and her two sons on her Instagram page on Father's Day in 2018. 

The singer covered the faces of her two sons in the picture with two blue heart emojis, and in the caption to the post, wished Mora a happy Father's Day, adding that she and her sons were blessed to have him in their lives. 

Kelis's claims prompted a response from Nas, who took to social media to pen an open letter.


Following their secret wedding in December 2014, the couple welcomed their first son, Shepherd, in November 2015. While Shepherd is their first child, Kelis has an older son, Knight, 11, from her previous marriage to rapper, Nas. 

The couple is expecting their second child with news of Kelis's pregnancy, making the rounds after she posted a photo of herself holding a First Response Early Result Pregnancy test, captioning it

"Chef Kelis – table for 5 please. We're adding one more! Happy to announce that I'm expecting and I'm partnering with @firstresponsepregnancy…"


Kelis and Nas divorced in 2010 but got locked in a bitter custody battle over their son, Knight. The feud got to a head when Kelis made some startling claims about her and Nas's relationship in an interview with Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked.

One of her claims was that the rapper abused her and that they had a toxic relationship. Kelis also said that Nas was paying only $8000 in child support and demanded more from him. 

Kelis's claims prompted a response from Nas, who took to social media to pen an open letter, denying her allegations that he abused her. 

The rapper also said that they were a family and should be better examples for their son. Nas further wrote that he had no issues with Knight and that a son always needs his father.
