Monique, who was later to be married Walter Jordan in 2012, had channeled her grief about her 2019 miscarriage into art. On Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in 2019, she shared on Instagram a short dance piece she filmed.

The actress said that she had miscarriaged on August 7. For the first time ever in my entire life I was unable to find enough words that would express how I felt in an effective and meaningful way. When I found out that one in four women suffers this unimaginable and devastating loss, I was determined to speak up. To express what was impossible with words, I turned to dance as a language.

She continued, “I pray that this piece promotes brave conversation & healing and above all makes our spirit baby proud #UNBORNtribute.”
