Kenya Moore has “waited 47 years” to become a mom!
After having a surprise wedding in June 2017, the Gone With The Wind-fabulous diva was spotted months later getting IVF treatments in Barbados.
“It’s not anything that I planned or even meant to say… It was the first thing [Andy Cohen] asked me, and I was really thrown off guard. The reunion usually goes on for 16 hours, so I figured it might come up. But not that soon. I felt stuck!”
Now that the cat is out of the bag, Miz Moore is totally over the moon!
“I’ve waited 47 years for this moment… I didn’t really want to announce it too soon because I feel it’s very early on in our pregnancy. But I have suffered so much in my life when it comes to wanting a family around me. So this is the day I’ve been waiting for my entire life. It’s a dream come true.”
As seen on RHOA, the 47-year-old has been vocal about her estranged relationship with her mother, who she hasn’t spoken to in years. Now that she’s a mom-to-be, Kenya is eager to start her own brood.
“No one really knows what it’s like to feel rejected and abandoned by someone who gave birth to you and who treated you so badly and who hoped you would fail… For me to have a family of my own, to me, that’s what makes me feel like I’m at the pinnacle of happiness.”
But how is her hubby dealing with the baby blabber??
“He’s thrilled! He’s just so happy… He gave me a big hug and a kiss and then he started to just kind of make jokes. That’s just his personality. He’s a fun-loving, happy person.”
Her family is ecstatic about the news as well!
“Everyone is excited. My dad is so happy. And two of my aunts told me they envisioned that I was going to be with child before I confirmed it!… Everyone in my life, they tell me I’m a nurturing person and going to be the most awesome mother. They see something in me that they know that’s going to be true.”
Costar Kandi Burruss has even offered to give Kenya hand-me-downs from her 2-year-old son, Ace Wells!
“We all know how expensive a kid can be, with cribs, car seats, etc… She was kind enough to say she’ll save some stuff!”
With a little help from her vision board, Kenya is living her best life!
“I’ve always used positive visualization to get what I want… I remember months before I got married, I did a vision board. And I put an image of a beautiful couple being married, a beautiful wedding, a baby, a house, [happiness], harmony, love, peace ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ all of those things were on that vision board. I carried that vision board with me wherever I went. And within six months, I met my husband.”
Congrats to Kenya and Marc on this wonderful news!
