In the book, “Shotgun Angels: My Story of Broken Roads and Unshakeable Hope,” DeMarcus wrote he wanted to raise his daughter himself, and his mom even offered to adopt her, but that he and his girlfriend ultimately decided to give her up, he told the Fox and Friends co-hosts Tuesday.
“I think about it every day,” he said of the choice to put her up for adoption. “It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do.”
At the time, DeMarcus was part of the Christian group East to West and he said he lost everything in the blink of an eye, including his record deal, booking agent and management. He told Fox and Friends he went through a dark period where he considered leaving the music industry altogether.
DeMarcus said that he hopes to meet his daughter one day but he wants the decision to be hers. He is now married with two children.
