Kenya Moore is a happy woman, and she’s not afraid to show it. A day after revealing her daughter’s face, the new mom shared a photo of her husband bonding with their child.


It’s safe to say Kenya’s husband, Marc Daly, is as smitten with Brooklyn Doris Daly as his wife is. Kenya took to Instagram some hours ago to share a photo of Marc cuddling Brooklyn.

The little mama had an adorable pout and was even twinning with her dad who couldn't help covering her with kisses.

The former “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star captioned the photo:

“Daddy’s little girl.”



The cute father-daughter snap comes only a day after Kenya showed her daughter’s face for the first time and shared more details of her difficult delivery with fans. She recalled it being a difficult process right from the pregnancy stage.

"Your condition is worsening so get your bags and go straight to the hospital."

After overcoming the initial scare that she was carrying a false pregnancy, the former beauty queen and her husband had to deal with the possibility that she had an ectopic tubal pregnancy and would need to terminate it.



So frightening was the period that Kenya said she and Marc held their breaths each time they went to see her specialists because there was almost always some form of bad news.

Things got worse in October when Kenya tested positive for preeclampsia. The 47-year-old told fans back then that she had gained a whopping 17 lbs in only one week.

The abnormal weight gain was as a result of “severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine,” more indications of preeclampsia.



After monitoring Kenya’s health for a while, the doctors determined she needed to deliver her baby immediately in early November.

“I called them to give them my blood pressure readings, and my reading was through the roof and climbing,” Kenya recalled. “They told me, ‘Your condition is worsening so get your bags and go straight to the hospital, you’re delivering today.’”


The emergency cesarean section lasted three hours, during which she had to be cut twice because of her existing fibroids.

“There were all these complications and they knew if they cut into a fibroid, I could potentially bleed out and die. So they ended up cutting me vertically too, to just get the baby out and make sure I survived the surgery. They were so scared they were going to lose me.”



Throughout the grueling procedure, Marc, 48, was by his wife’s side. In an Instagram post immediately after Brooklyn’s November 4 arrival, Kenya also acknowledged the restaurateur’s support.

“Marc was incredible in the [delivery] room. I lost a lot of blood so I'm very weak but they both were strong for me,” she said.

Kenya and Marc -- who she calls her “king” -- tied the knot in 2017 after meeting in Brooklyn (hence, their daughter’s name).

Congratulations again to the Dalys!
