“I was reminded that sometimes you just gotta get thrown into some s--t to remind you of how capable you are,” Kyra wrote on Instagram. “Like I had no website, no business cards, no service packages, no pricing, and no birth experience whatsoever. And when I met my client she was already due in three weeks. But I did it y’all!! I held it down pretty well. Of course, there’s always room for growth, but I think I did a great job.”

Unfortunately, it appears that Anthony and Alvina’s marriage has been shaky for quite some time. Reports share that Alvina first filed for divorce in 2015 but later dismissed the claim and went on to reconcile with the actor.

At the time, Alvina reportedly shared that the pair separated in April 2014 and that she would share joint custody of the couple’s son along with a request for spousal support.

The news is heartbreaking since the pair initially met in college at Howard University. However, since Anthony and Alvina have reconciled in the past, there is hope that the pair will do so again.

We would like to wish both Anthony and Alvina all the best during this time.
