Kenya Moore of ‘RHOA’ fame has given birth to a BABY GIRL!!
47, gave birth to daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly at 9:39 a.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 4, PEOPLE can exclusively report. The baby girl weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz.
It’s the first child for Moore and husband Marc Daly, who gave their daughter a name that holds special meaning.
“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,” Moore tells PEOPLE.
Mom is doing well and “Brooklyn is very alert and active,” but the happy news also comes after scary few days for Moore.
The former Miss USA, who conceived through in vitro fertilization, gave birth via emergency cesarean section after revealing on Oct. 27 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.”
CONGRATS to Moore….how ironic she gave birth on the day RHOA returns for season 11 WITHOUT her!? It would’ve been GREAT to see her JOURNEY play out on TV, but Bravo and Moore couldn’t see EYE TO EYE..SO….
OH WELL..CONGRATS to Kenya and Marc!
