It looks like Tom Brooks has a lot of secrets as we get deeper into Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days but this one, he’s been keeping since he burst onto the reality TV scene.
Darcey Silva’s ex-boyfriend just shared that he is a dad and he has been for quite some time.
Now it’s no secret that Tom’s Before the 90 Days love Darcey has two daughters. We also know that his sister Emma has a child with her husband. But up until now, Tom has remained silent when it comes to his own family. Who would have ever thought that he was hiding a child?
While Tom’s details were pretty scarce, on Saturday, he shared a picture of a little girl and told the world that he’s a father. Not only that, but his little girl is 11 years old so it’s not new news. He just didn’t want to share it with the 90 Day Fiance world.
Tom Brooks’ daughter
“For all of you that didn’t know, I have a daughter she will be 12 this June. I didn’t want her to be involved in the show in anyway,” Tom wrote in the caption of a picture of himself and his sleeping daughter.
He didn’t disclose her name or any details about the child except that she will be turning 12 years old in June.
90 Day Fiance stars and fans weigh in
Ashley Martson is another 90 Day Fiance star who has kept her children out of the spotlight. She has a son and daughter but never shows their faces on social media and never had them on the show.
She was quick to comment on Tom’s photo, reassuring him that keeping the kids off the show is definitely for the best. Ashley wrote, “?????? love this! The s**t show should never have children on it as far as I’m concerned.”
Other 90 Day Fiance fans showed their support too.
“You did good to keep her out. Cause social media could be mean. You are a great dad!” one commenter wrote.
Another said, “Great dad for making such a decision.”
Why did Tom Brooks tell us now?
It’s not really clear why Tom Brooks decided to share a photo of his daughter and reveal that secret to 90 Day Fiance fans now. He’s still on Before the 90 Days so it’s possible that the subject might come up when talking to Darcey.
Then again, he could have just been feeling nostalgic and wanted to share his love for his daughter with the world.
