Congratulations are in order for Kenya Moore!
For the 47 year-old ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ star has given birth to her first child today – a girl.
PEOPLE confirms the arrival of Brooklyn Doris Daly, Moore’s offspring with restauranteur husband Marc Daly.
Born today (November 4th) at 9.39 am ET, the baby girl weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz.
Per the couple, mom and child are both doing well, with Brooklyn being described as “very alert and active.”
The news comes after a rocky few days for Moore, who was admitted into hospital early due to complications.
She revealed on social media just says ago 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.”
Conceived via in-vitro, Brooklyn’s name holds deep meaning for both mother and father. Moore explains:
“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”
We’re elated for Kenya and Marc! Once again, huge congrats!
