Former Today Show host Tamron Hall is finally a mom. The 48-year-old announced her exciting news on Instagram earlier this week with a photo taken by her husband, music executive Steven Greener. The sweet picture featured Hall holding her newborn son named Moses, while she wore a straw hat with the baby’s name.
“Moses & Mama!!” wrote Hall in the caption. “I can’t wait to introduce y’all to my #sonshine.”
She added that the photo credit goes to Greener, “who can’t stop crying tears of joy.”
But while Hall is relishing in the happy changes in her life, some of her fans are not buying into all of her happiness. Afterall, welcoming a baby at 48 naturally is almost unheard of, which is exactly what had fans questioning if Moses was actually a baby that “defied the biological clock.”
After Tamron Hall delivered her healthy baby boy 👑❤ at the age of 48, I saw a tweet titled something like, "defying the biological clock myth" or some irresponsible bullshyt like that.
I was appalled
Tamron & wealthy mothers like her have money to burn on fertility treatments https://t.co/3wE8jbDkK9

After leaving Today, Hall has been busy preparing for her new syndicated talk show, The Tamron Hall Show, which will premiere later this year, Then she surprised fans last month with the news that she was expecting. At the time of her announcement, Hall was already 32 weeks along.
In the pregnancy announcement, Hall posted a series of pics showing off her baby bump, and she wrote in the caption that she had wanted to share the news for months. But she waited until her doctor told her she was in a safe place to share her joy.
Hall joked that a daytime talk show wasn’t the only thing she’s been trying to produce, and then her tone changed when she shared that there have been many tears, but on that day, she embraced the smiles.

The new mom said at the time of the pregnancy announcement that she and Greener were beyond excited and in constant prayer. She also asked fans for their prayers and to send calmness their way, while adding that the couple would happily take some luck, too.
According to People Magazine, just a few minutes before posting the pregnancy pics, Hall shared a video of herself dancing to Baby Shark while holding a book in front of her belly. She eventually took the book away to reveal her big baby bump while she sang and danced to the kids’ song. Hall told the camera “Surprise! Can you believe it?”
An insider says that Hall has wanted to be a mom for years, and for a long time she didn’t think having a baby was “in the cards for her.”

“This journey has been a long one, and there were a ton of ups and downs, and she’s just so happy to finally be in a place to be able to share this news. This is truly the happiest time of her life,” says the source.
The Tamron Hall Show premieres September 9th.
