In September of 2015, Darren Knight posted a video titled “Southern Mom Pickin’ em Kids Up From School” to his Facebook.
That was it—the rising point for Darren Knight and his Southern Momma alter-ego impersonation.
But the kind of impersonation that Knight does has led to some questions around. People are starting to ask if Darren Knight is Gay.
Let’s find out
Is Darren Knight Gay?
The short and simple answer here is no. But let’s not jump to conclusions just yet.
However, it’s valid for people to assume that Knight is a gay man. After all, the impersonation raises all kinds of suspicions.
Darren Knight has been in the spotlight since his video of Southern Momma, inspired by his real-life Southern mother and grandmother, took off.
But since then, there’s been a couple of rumors running around that Darren is a homosexual man.
Well, the news isn’t confirmed yet, that’s just something that’s been running around people for a very long time now.
The reason that we earlier stated that Darren Knight is not gay is that he has not publicly said so.
Without Knight talking openly about his sexuality, there’s no point in labeling him as a gay man who’s secretly hiding his LGBTQ lifestyle.
What seems to be the main reason for all these Darren Knight gay rumors is because of his privately kept personal life.
But is it private, though?
Darren Knight Girlfriend, Dating Relationship Status
So, what is Knight’s relationship status?
There’s actually a debate on this one here.
In February of 2020, Knight posted a picture with a gorgeous woman on his Instagram.
Of course, Knight posts pictures with a lot of beautiful women. What was interesting about this post was the date.
Knight made the post with this lady on Valentine’s Day. It was February 14.

Now, hold your horses just yet. This doesn’t necessarily mean that this wonderful woman is Darren’s girlfriend or even wife.
Fans have posted comments on this picture claiming that she is not Knights girlfriend and again, making speculations that he is homosexual.
The picture, however, looks pretty great and promising as well.
But the conflicting part is this.
There’s nothing else other than Knight wishing Valentine’s Day only. Could it be that she’s just a fan at one of his shows?
It’ll all have to wait until Knight decides to clear up things regarding his sexuality and relationship status.
How Did Darren Knight Become Famous?
Although many like to watch Knights’ extremely funny stand shows and short videos that he posts on his social media, many of them do not know where it all began.
If you already know, then you’re one awesome person.
But, there’s no shame in not knowing.
As mentioned earlier, Southern Momma began when Knight decided to post a video in which he shows how Southern moms allegedly pick their kids from school.
The video blew up initially with a couple of thousand shares.
Within one week, Knight’s video had already amassed over 500,000 views on Facebook.
After his video blew up on the internet, Knight, who was overwhelmed with people’s positive reaction and support, began posting regularly in his alter-ego Southern Momma self.
