Former Miss USA may not have be a Real Housewives of Atlanta housewife next season, but she is still good pals with several of her co-stars who have snapped pics with the mom-to-be during her pregnancy.,
“ow! My girl @thekenyamoore is just glowing today?#babydaly #auntiecynt,“the former model and agency boss captioned a photo of herself cradling Moore’s growing bump.”
Moore and Daly are expecting their first child together. The 47-year old announced the news during the reunion show and is due this winter.
Since then, she has been plagued with verbal assaults by online followers who have consistently accused the star of faking her bump.
Last week was a busy one for some of Bravo TV‘s expecting Real Housewives.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Shamea Morton and Kenya Moore donned their best sports Jerseys and Jordan sneakers to attend Todd Tucker’s Jordans and Jerseys birthday party in Atlanta.
Earlier in the week, the former Miss USA and another Atlanta power couple hit up fellow RHOA castmember Kandi Burruss‘ Old Lady Gang (“OLG”) restaurant she owns with her husband.
Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels sported a tiny bump in a glamorous blush sequined gown while attending and taping that franchise’s reunion show which was spent “reading” a lot of her fellow cast members according to her caption.
“Baby daddy just checking on the bump after all the reading I had to do,” the Not for Lazy Moms lifestyle blogger captioned a pic of her husband Chris Samuels cradling his wife’s bump mid taping.
Real Housewives of Potomac
star Monique Samuels
is expecting her third child after suffering a miscarriage which was revealed on the hit Bravo Tv
The mom of two opened up about the loss never anticipated the outpouring of support on an April episode of the series, filmed the prior year.
“When I first shared my story, I didn’t even realize how many people had experienced miscarriages before,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “It was amazing to have that support and to realize that I wasn’t alone. And to show so many of these women too that they can get through this.”
Samuels announced that she and her NFL veteran hubby Chris Samuels are expecting another baby — due Dec. 3. But although Monique says she feels “blessed” to add another member to her family, she said the miscarriage has changed how she feels about her pregnancy.
She said she is more cautious and frightful that things could go wrong.
“It kind of haunts you,” she admitted to the site. “The first times I was pregnant, it came so easily. I took that for granted. Now that I’m pregnant again, it’s almost like I second guess everything that I’m doing. Even with movement. I’m making sure I’m not moving too fast so I stretch my stomach. It’s something I didn’t think about with my first two pregnancies.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is sharing her pregnancy journey from ultrasound pics to weight gain with her fans and followers in social media.
On Friday, the 47-year old mom-to-be shared her latest ultrasound video and pregnancy weight in her Instagram stories.
She stepped on the scale to reveal that she’s at 183.3 lbs., adding a shocked emoji. She attached the tag “Baby Twirl” to her Ultrasound video, based off her famous line from previous seasons on the hit Bravo TV show. Moore also learned learned that her blood pressure was a little high, too.
She did share that she and her new husband restaurateur Marc Daly do not know the gender of the baby yet because it is too soon.
“Even though my doctor says ‘Barbie’ she meant to say baby. It was too early to tell the gender,” she said, concluding her post: “Again, thank you for the love, prayers, and hope. #blessed #thankyouJehovahgod #babytwirl #nevergiveup #yougotnext #dreams #love #family #life #IVF #mytime #myjourney #motherhood.”
This isn’t the first time Moore has showed her fans a glimpse of one of her ultrasounds.
Earlier this month, she shared a video that shows the sweet moment she heard and saw her little one’s heartbeat.
“My heart is overwhelmed by all the kindness and well wishes many of you have sent our family,” Moore wrote in the comments, thanking her fans and followers. “I felt compelled to share this video of one of our early ultrasounds when I saw my baby’s heart beating for the first time.”
She shared that the moment she first heard her baby’s heartbeat, “I cried like a baby myself!” she said. “I couldn’t believe this miracle was growing inside me. And its heart was beating so fast!”
“I’ve waited 47 years for this moment,” Moore told PEOPLE at the time. “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.”
Moore, who conceived through in vitro fertilization, also told PEOPLE that her life has changed since pregnancy. “I’m tired obviously. I don’t have the stamina that I had before, so I’m taking it a little easy — not working out and going on long walks with the dogs. But it’s nothing … I don’t feel that bad,” she said.
She recently shared a pic with Kandi on her Insta with Kandi cradling her co-star’s bump.
We’ve heard of expectant celebrities being shamed for exercising while preggers, being too thin and more, but recently lawyer, entrepreneur and Bravo TV‘s Shahs of Sunset alum Lilly Ghalichi was recently shamed for being too cute while pregnant and making pregnancy look too “pretty.”
Ghalichi addressed the person who suggested that she was glamorizing pregnancy for young girls.
“Someone left a comment saying “Stop trying to make pregnancy look cute, it sends a bad image to girls” Ghalichi captioned yet another adorable photo shoot of her glowing and looking healthy and great. “❣Pregnancy is very hard no doubt, but is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. I’m posting MY pregnancy, maybe yours wasn’t cute to you, mine is beautiful to me. ✨I’m also 35 and married, hopefully sending a message that it’s ok to wait until you’re ready to bring life into the World and start a family. #GhalichiGlam’
Her fans jumped in quickly to back her up.
“Nooooooo! Stuff like 16 and pregnant makes young girls think pregnancy is cool. How could a 35 year old pregnant woman send off that kind of vibe? That poster must’ve smoked something before they said that! Just stupid!” one fan wrote.
We agree with the fan that said,”Pregnancy is so so much beautiful! The thought of bringing a beautiful soul to the world makes it more awesome.?”
Keep on doing you, ma!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is expecting at the end of the year, according to sources of blogger LoveBScott who are familiar with the show’s Reunion special taping held this past Thursday.
The former Miss USA revealed the news during the session. Many hypothesize that the pregnancy news saves Moore from getting axed from the show because she has a renewed story line.
Also, she shared that her husband, restauranteur Marc Daly, has finally agreed to film for the show, she revealed during the reunion taping. Previously, he had been reluctant making it difficult for the production to include Moore. She spent a lot of last season in New York City, where her husband is based and only filmed with the other housewives periodically.
When Moore was asked about plans to grow a family with her new hubby during an episode of Watch What Happens Next After Show, Moore replied, “I hope so. You know, listen, we have been really up front about wanting to expand our family, and we have definitely been taking the proper steps to try to make that happen.”
The couple celebrated her 47th birthday with a trip to Egypt this past January. Congrats!

Toya Wright celebrated the impending arrival of her second child at a baby shower in an Atlanta private residence this past MLK weekend.
It was a reality TV show reunion as some Our blog faves and bumpwatch alums Monica Brown, Monyetta Shaw and Rasheeda attended. Other stars of Atlanta-based shows Shamea Morton from Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta Quad Webb-Lunceford from that same network’s Married to Medicine.
The event featured personalized candy apples, candy bar and Rice Krispie treats and more. The theme was “Showering Reign”, a take off of the name she has selected for her daughter, though in one recent post, she referred to her baby as “Reignbeaux“, phonetic spin on Rainbow with a very unique spelling.
Wright also used the occasion to introduce the public to her beau and the baby’s dad Atlanta sports manager Robert “Red” Rushing. Up until this point, she had elected to conceal his identity. Secret’s out now!
If the baby’s name will be Reignbeaux, this will be the second celebrity baby Rainbow in recent years because The Girls Next Door alum Holly Madison‘s first child is also named Rainbow. Reign is also a bit popular recently among celebrities. Kourtney Kardashian‘s son is named Reign and that is the middle name of Lil Kim’s daughter Royal Reign.
Wright announced her pregnancy last September with a very creative scripted video featuring her daughter Reginae Carter with ex husband rapper Lil Wayne.
Oh and h/t from YBF, we learned that she also had a second shower with her fans. Nice! Here are photos shared by attendees:
