Apart from being famous as a nationally award-winning journalist, Kimberly Holmes is also well-known for her touching story. After her beloved husband Rasheed Wiggins p.a.s.s.e.d away in a t.r.a.g.i.c a.c.c.i.d.e.n.t in 2016, the writer suffered from depression and it was undoubtedly the darkest time in her life. With the suggestion of her friends, the widow decided to extract his s.p.e.r.m.s and freeze it, hoping that she can have a child with him in the future.
It is the time that has the power to heal. Holmes slowly picks herself up together after the incident. She was strongly supported by families and friends including her old friend Darian Iverson who became her new husband. According to Holmes, Iverson is a kind and intelligent man and she believed that Iverson is the one that her late husband Rasheed sent to her and guided her through the darkest days.
“Darian’s standing by my side in a manner I never would have had the guts to ask anyone to do,” said Kimberly Holmes.
After the pair tied the knot in 2020, it was Darian who encouraged his wife to get pregnant using the frozen s.p.e.r.m of her late husband. He was also the one who drove her to the clinic to have her eggs harvested for the fertility process and took care of her during 9 months of pregnancy and labor.
In May 2021, the pair welcomed their son Kiran who was conceived with Rasheed’s sperm. They have been raising him together and enjoying the happiness of being parents.
According to Kimberly, Darian Iverson gives her exactly what she needs. He gives meaning to her life and helps her to feel peaceful after all of the ups and downs.
