Reality star Kenya Moore has officially entered motherhood after welcoming her daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly following pregnancy complications.
The 47-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum gave birth to daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly at 9:39 a.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 4, People reports. The baby girl weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz. and is the first child for Moore and her husband Marc Daly.
The newlyweds gave their daughter a name that holds special meaning, the outlet reports.
“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,” Moore told People.
Sources say Moore is doing well following some complications during delivery and “Brooklyn is very alert and active”. The former Miss USA had to give birth via emergency cesarean section after she revealed on Oct. 27 that she had tested positive for preeclampsia — a pregnancy complication that caused her to gain
“17 lbs. in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.”
If left untreated, preeclampsia can have fatal consequences. The most effective form of treatment is delivery, something Moore said she was considering, People reports.
“This is NOT normal,” Moore wrote on Instagram. “Baby is fine but if [test] come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day.” “Staying positive,” Moore added. “To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors.”
On Saturday, Moore told her fans on Instagram that her baby was on the way.
“If you want to make God laugh have a plan…” she captioning a shot of her laying her hospital bed. “Won’t be long now. Pray for us 🙏🏾 #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers.”
