Moira Stuart Partner, Lesbian, Family, Net Worth, Now, Age

Dedication and achievements go hand-in-hand.

Well, the saying is beautifully proved by the famous TV presenter and personality, Moira Stuart.

As a first African-Caribbean female newsreader to ever appear on British television, Moira made a significant name in the field of journalism.

She has even been voted and awarded as the best TV personality due to her nearly 40-years-of experience. Moreover, she has received more than 12 awards out of, which the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) award is a major one that she won in 2001.

Born on 2 September 1949 in London to parents Harold Stewart and Marjorie Stuart, Moira was raised along with her two sisters, Sandra and Sharon. But, she experienced upsetting scenarios while growing up as a child. 

Moira Stuart’s Family, Personal Life

During an interview with the dailymail in February 2010, Moira for the first time shared about her saddening past. 

Well, Moira’s mom, Majorie had married Moira's father Harold, a lawyer by profession at an innocent age. When Moira was just ten months old, and her older sister was six, Harold deserted the family by leaving them. 

Majorie, a former nurse, could have put Moira and her sister for adoption. But, instead, she worked hard for the betterment of her daughter's life. She alone served at houses, factory, post office and so on to raise her little ones. 

She even moved to one of the most deprived boroughs in London, Hackney along with her two children for livelihood. In London, Majorie married a worker from British Rail and welcomed a daughter with him.

Unfortunately, her second marriage also ended up when Moira was 13.

After the separation, Moira along with her mother and two sisters emigrated to Bermuda to live with their relatives. But Moira could not fit in Bermuda as it was segregated. So, she eventually returned to London at the age of 15.

During her mid-teens, Moira tried to track down her father only to know that her father had died in 1965. He had passed away with his second wife when their car was struck by a lorry. 

Not knowing her father, Moira spent her days and went on to make her hardworking mama proud by joining the journalism world.

But despite having a crush, Moira never got into a relationship. Maybe, because of her broken past and her mother's twice failed marriage, Moira made her career a significant priority than her love life.
