Kenya Moore is Finally A Mom! Congrats! [PHOTOS]
Real Housewife of Atlanta cast mate, Kenya Moore finally received what she's been praying for! She's a mom now! Kenya gave birth to a daughter she named Brooklyn Doris Daly on Sunday (November 4). PEOPLE is reporting that the baby weighs 5 lbs. 12 oz. When asked where the name came from, she told the magazine the following.
“Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me,” the 47-year-old told the magazine.
This is the first child for Moore and husband Marc Daly. Kenya is reportedly doing well and Brooklyn is “very alert and active.”
Kenya Moore gave birth via an emergency cesarean section. On October 27, Moore tested positive for preeclampsia — a pregnancy complication causing her to gain 17 pounds in one week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. Perhaps her age played a part in the health issue. Kenya shared a picture of her very swollen feet on Instagram.

I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia... I gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. This is NOT normal! I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day. Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors.🙏🏾 #babydaly #highrisk #love #family #miraclebaby #kenyamoore #babybump #pregnantover40
Unfortunately, fans of RHOA won’t get to see how Kenya’s new chapter will play out. She won’t be returning to the show’s eleventh season, which premiered last night.
However, congrats are still in order! Brooklyn is beautiful!
