Motherhood is quickly approaching for Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kenya Moore and slowing down is the last thing this Georgia Peach would ever consider. It’s been over five months since she first announced her pregnancy with husband and successful businessman, Marc Daly and the excitement has been infectious!
"Everything is good and healthy," Kenya shared with E! News exclusively as she prepares for her due date around Thanksgiving. "This is the home stretch and I'm being as healthy as I possibly can and being as positive as I can." The timing couldn’t be more fitting.
Moore first announced her pregnancy back in April during a Real Housewives of Atlanta: Reunion Part 1 episode on Bravo. "We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year," she told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen. Kenya was reluctant to talk about becoming a mother as she was concerned about complications regarding her age. "I am still just very nervous about everything so I just want to get past a safe place," she told Cohen at the time. Even so, this verifiable wonder woman; TV personality, actress, model, media producer, businesswoman and let's not forget, winner of the 1993 Miss USA contest has not left her fans guessing! She continues to reveal little gems throughout her pregnancy journey - how she faring and naturally, pics of her incredible baby bump.

First look!! #babydaly 3D image! This is a 3D image from an ultrasound. It looks like play-doh or Clamation LOL but you can make out a face! The black is not hair it's just part of the image No you can't tell if it's a boy or girl But OMG the baby has daddy's lips and nose! #miraclebaby #firstlook #3Dultrasound #love #family #ThatsMrsDalyToYou #kenyamoore #IVF #marcdaly
In June, Kenya got candid on Instagram when she shared a video of her ultrasound - her miracle as she expressed. "My heart is overwhelmed by all the kindness and well wishes many of you have sent our family," she wrote on Instagram. "I felt compelled to share this video of one of our early ultrasounds when I saw my baby's heart beating for the first time. I cried like a baby myself!" A priceless gift for her adoring fans who are devoted to Moore reality.
Despite their frankness in the public eye, there are a couple of intimate details that the couple prefers to keep between themselves, naturally creating even a greater obsession for privy information - the sex and the name of their baby. Moore and Daly do admit to having already selected a gender neutral name, they both love! "My cousin actually said it at a family function once. Marc and I both looked at each other and we were both like, 'Oh my God! That's an amazing name,'" she teased to us. "It means so much to us. It has great significance to us." Along with the slew of reality TV fans, we too can't wait to find out!
In essence, it is ironic that Kenya has been exposing intimate details to her fans, as the very public controversy over choosing to conceal her private life while filming RHOA has precipitated her being fired from the venerated Bravo series. Unlike her co-star Porsha Williams who not only secured herself future seasons but also earned a monumental raise for unveiling it all.
RHOA is about exposing it all and keeping it real. When Kenya eloped with Daly in 2017 with the cameras down, it signified the end of her career with the Atlanta housewives. Although the fans wanted Kenya back, they longed for the old Kenya - the firecracker they had grown to love. “You can’t have secrets and be on reality TV. Especially when other Housewives are showing all of their lives — the good, bad, and the ugly. They need to see your life.” Here’s looking at the new Kenya, with husband and baby in tow! All the best, as always!
