Well, the celebrity baby boom continues. First, Cardi B announces (or shows her baby bump) on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live and now Kenya Moore announces that yes, she’s going to be a mom at 47. Moore told the world on this weekend’s Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion show.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 47, revealed on Sunday’s season 10 reunion part 1 that she’s pregnant with her first child — a surprise revelation that happened at the top of the show when host Andy Cohen asked if a baby was on the way.
“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year,” Moore said, shocking herself. “Oh my God, I said that! I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m still very nervous about everything so I want to get past a safe place.”
Asked if she wanted a boy or a girl, Moore said, “I want a healthy baby.”
Her happy news comes 10 months after the former Miss USA married husband Marc Daly in a romantic sunset ceremony on a St. Lucia beach.
“We both want to start a family and soon — like, right away,” Moore told PEOPLE exclusively at the time. “We both want a child.”
Moore and Daly first met through mutual friend (and fellow Bravolebrity) Chef Roblé Ali back in June of 2016, though didn’t start dating until December of that year.
Their first date changed everything for Moore. “I’ve never experience a first date like this before,” she gushed. “You know when you meet people, and you like them or have good chemistry with them but you don’t feel like the world has changed? I felt like the earth moved after our first date.”
It was a stark contrast from dating experiences Moore had in the past. But then again, Moore tried a different tactic this time around.
“I was always the person who ran,” she admitted. “Any time I ever saw anything I didn’t like in someone, I just ran. And it was not working for me. I want people to stick with me and work it out if they care, so I can’t run. You have to communicate honestly with each other and never give up on each other.”
