Kenya Moore is finally ready to share the first look at her bundle of joy – baby Brooklyn.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star gave birth to the youngster last month, following a very public journey to motherhood.
Brooklyn is the first child for Moore (46) and restauranteur Marc Daly (48), to whom she wed last year.

Speaking with PEOPLE the former Miss USA said of her new arrival:
“I finally have everything I’ve dreamed of. She’s so perfect in so many ways,” adds Moore, who says Brooklyn “makes 101 faces” that always make her laugh. “This little angel … so beautiful. I feel so blessed. It’s all been so worth it.”
Moore, who saw an OBGYN and perinatologist (a specialist for high-risk pregnancy) weekly, was also frank about the challenges along the way. She tested positive for the condition preeclampsia and in one week gained 17 lbs.
“There were so many scares along the way. We held our breath every time we went to the doctor.”
[Then on day of delivery] they couldn’t get the baby out. There were all these complications and they knew if they cut into a fibroid, I could potentially bleed out and die. So they ended up cutting me vertically too, to just get the baby out and make sure I survived the surgery. They were so scared they were going to lose me. When it was all over, my doctor said, ‘This was one for the books.’ ”
Huge congrats to Kenya and Marc.
On a separate note, it’s a shame viewers weren’t able to watch the build up to the birth on RHOA and instead had to make do with social media. But something tells us, we’ve not seen the last of Twirl on the Bravo series just yet.
