Journey to motherhood

Last June, Moore married Marc Daly in a secret wedding on the island of Saint Lucia. Only a handful of friends and family were invited. None of the stars from the Real Housewives of Atlanta were present.

Shortly after the wedding news was released to the public, Moore discussed her desire to become pregnant in multiple interviews. Moore and her husband were even spotted at a fertility clinic in Barbados several weeks later. During the reunion show for Real Housewives, host Andy Cohen asked Moore if she was pregnant and if the baby’s name will be Twirl. Moore confirmed the first question and denied the second. She already has a dog named Twirl.

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year,” she said. “I do not want to talk about the details. I am still just very nervous about everything, so I just want to get past a safe place….I want a healthy baby.”

Theories for why Moore might be using a surrogate

Some viewers believe Moore might be using a surrogate because she never used the word “pregnant” in her announcement.

One user commented on her Instagram account, saying, “You’re telling me this woman who has struggled with fertility as much as she has, has a surrogate but doesn’t know the due date.”

Another thought she may be using a surrogate, but reminded other commenters that there is nothing wrong with using a surrogate. “Omggg @thekenyamoore I’m so Freakinggggg Happy For You We All waited for this moment, nothing but blessings your way & a safe & healthy pregnancy & baby don’t believe she said that lol sounds like she may have a surrogate and there’s nothing wrong with that. Happy for her.”

Looking ahead

“Live your best life!” Moore wrote in a recent Instagram post. “I’m living mine. It took me a long time to receive the blessing of having a family. I prayed for this life! God blessed me with this life and this new joy! I will always speak the truth. I will continue to grow, forgive my enemies, and help as many people I can by example not words.”

The happy couple is also about to reach their one-year anniversary.

Regardless of whether or not Moore used surrogacy, her baby news is exciting and certainly calls for a celebration.
