Mo’Nique Talks About Why She Calls Her Husband “Daddy,” Says “.. He’s Raising Me. He’s Giving Me Everything That My Father Did Not” [Video]

Mo’Nique isn’t the only one who calls her man daddy, but she also doesn’t see anything wrong with letting people know she does and why she does.

During an interview with the daughter of late comedian Bernie Mac, Je’Niece McCullough, the comedian/actress discussed her open marriage with her husband, Sidney Hicks, and why she calls him daddy.

“When people say to me, ‘Why do you call him Daddy? I tell them: ‘because he’s raising me. He’s giving me everything that my father did not.’”

Despite her candidness about it, she admitted that it can be embarrassing, but says he’s worthy of the title because he treats her “like a lady” and credits him for helping her become mature.

Also during the interview she touched on society’s views, saying that women today are “taught” that a man has to have money in order to do something for you.

The 55-year-old “Queens of Comedy” star said Hicks loved her unconditionally even through times she wasn’t mentally her best, and did so with integrity and honor.

“My husband, my best friend, my brother, he’s had all these hats,” she continued. “And, a lot of Black women would say, ‘Why do you call him Daddy?’ Because he’s raising me. He’s raising me. My father probably stopped giving me what I needed when I was around 13 years old.”

“It was my husband that grew me up,” she continued. “And even at 55 years old, there are still times when he has to say, ‘C’mon, let’s talk,’ and I’m grateful for that because it makes me a better mother. It makes me a better friend. It makes me a better entertainer.”
