Congratulations to Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star Kenya Moore and her husband restaurateur Marc Daly who welcomed their first child, a daughter, together tonight, Sunday, November 4, PEOPLE magazine reported.
The couple, married since June 2017, named their new arrival Brooklyn Doris Daly.
“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 told People of the name’s significance.
According to the mag, “Brooklyn is very alert and active” and was born weighing at 5 lbs. and 12 oz.
Hours before welcoming her baby, Moore took to Instagram to give fans an update from the hospital.
“If you want to make God laugh have a plan… won’t be long now. Pray for us ?? #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers,” Moore captioned her photo where she is seen smiling while lying in a hospital bed.
The former Miss USA conceived through in vitro fertilization and gave birth via emergency cesarean section after she shared last week on Oct. 27 that she had tested positive for preeclampsia — a pregnancy complication.
Moore said the condition caused her to gain “17 lbs. in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.”
She shared a photo of her swollen feet.

I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia… I gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. This is NOT normal! I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day. Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors.?? #babydaly #highrisk #love #family #miraclebaby #kenyamoore #babybump #pregnantover40
