Kenya Moore was surprised when Andy Cohen asked about her pregnancy during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. The RHOA star expected the question but was surprised when it was the first one Cohen lobbed her way. Although she was thrown off guard, Moore opened up about what it was like being pregnant for the first time.
Moore is expecting her first child with husband Marc Daly. The reality star is 47 years old and underwent in vitro fertilization to get pregnant.
What an amazing night! Thank you to the #carriesteelepittshome in celebrating 130 years of providing homes for orphans. The Dalys always show up for good causes.

Although Moore and her husband like to keep their relationship out of the public eye, she was more than happy to share her excitement about becoming a mom.
“I’ve waited 47 years for this moment,” Moore told Cohen, adding that she didn’t say anything prior to the reunion because it was so early in the pregnancy. “So, this is the day I’ve been waiting for my entire life. It’s a dream come true.”
All of the struggles Moore has endured over the years makes her first pregnancy all the more special. As RHOA fans know, Moore’s biggest hurdle has been the relationship with her estranged mom, whom she hasn’t spoken to in years.
According to People, Moore talked about what it’s like feeling abandoned and rejected, and how it hurts the worst when it comes from the person who carried you for 9 months. For Moore, being a good mother and starting a family is a huge step in her life and she couldn’t be happier about it.
Moore’s quest for happiness wasn’t easy. She has gone through a lot of bad relationships over the years, many of which have played out on RHOA. But everything changed when Moore met Daly in the summer of 2016.
The two met through a mutual friend, though they didn’t start dating until the end of the year. Since then, Moore and Daly have been inseparable and tied the knot in a gorgeous wedding on St. Lucia beach last year.
When it comes to her husband, Moore revealed that he’s just as excited about starting a family. Moore has also received plenty of support from her fellow co-stars, including Kandi Burruss, who gave her a few baby items that her son has grown out of.
No word yet on whether or not Kenya Moore’s birth will be featured on the next season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
