Kenya Moore's Baby Brooklyn Is Too Cute as She Makes TV Debut on 'The Real'
Kenya Moore's daughter's television debut saw the hosts of "The Real" in tears as they gushed over her and listened to Kenya's message of hope for first-time mothers like her.
It’s been six months since Kenya Moore welcomed her daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly and now the toddler has made her television debut.
GUSHING OVER BROOKLYN
It was “Fri-yay!” on “The Real” as the talk show’s hosts welcomed Brooklyn along with her proud mom. The beautiful baby dressed in a yellow dress and a white headband elicited cheers entering the set looking cute in her sparkly shoes.
Hosts Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton and Tamera Mowry couldn’t help but gush over her as Kenya’s smile radiated watching her little girl.
“Oh my God, she’s so cute!” the women kept saying while a clueless Brooklyn quietly observed the commotion around her.
"We just have such a cute family and it’s everything I have ever asked God for. Just that."
ON KENYA'S FIRST MOTHER'S DAY
The Instagram baby who has over 90,000 followers has been the object of Kenya’s affection ever since she was born into this world in November. The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has been very generous in sharing her to her fans and her television debut is no exception.
“I think she’s kind of like a symbol of hope because so many people watched my journey and they knew how important it was for me to have her."
With her first Mother’s Day just around the corner, Kenya revealed all she wanted was to spend it with Brooklyn and her husband, Marc Daly.
“I just want to celebrate it with my baby and my husband. We just have such a cute family and it’s everything I have ever asked God for. Just that. I just want that.”
Kenya added that she would also ask her husband for another child.
“I just want my husband to commit to having another one. I want one more. Brooklyn deserves to have a playmate right?”
A SYMBOL OF HOPE
Kenya conceived Brooklyn through IVF and she admits she has more embryos stored for future use. When asked why her baby is so popular on social media, she says,
“I think she’s kind of like a symbol of hope because so many people watched my journey and they knew how important it was for me to have her and here she is and she just gives other women hope that if it happened to me at my age at 47 it can happen to them too.”
As Kenya spoke, she dabbed the tears welling in her eyes. Tears streamed down Loni’s face too as she held Brooklyn while Adrienne had watery eyes.
“Being a mother and looking into my daughter’s eyes and just seeing how much she needs me and how much she loves me, i can’t imagine treating a child a certain way just because they are born."
ON BEING ABANDONED BY HER OWN MOTHER
The 48-year-old first-time mom also opened up having no relationship with her own mother who abandoned her at birth. She couldn’t understand how her mother could leave her now that she’s a mom herself.
“Being a mother and looking into my daughter’s eyes and just seeing how much she needs me and how much she loves me, i can’t imagine treating a child a certain way just because they are born... I can never do that to my own daughter...I just want to protect her... It’s even more difficult for me to understand.”
AN UNSPOKEN BOND
On Mother’s Day, Kenya celebrated by sharing three images on her Instagram representing her happiness in being a mother. One of them was a photo from the delivery room after Brooklyn was born. The pic was simply captioned, “Happiest day of my life.” She also shared an uncaptioned photo of the two of them sleeping. But she wrote a lengthy message on her first post where she and Brooklyn are staring at each other wearing matching flower headbands.
Kenya wrote about their “unspoken bond, an unbreakable one” as she laments on waiting her whole life to become a mother. “You have my unconditional love forever and always. I vow to protect, nurture, and encourage you to always be your best self,” she adds. She also prayed that Brooklyn would be a “phenomenal woman” better than her before greeting herself a Happy Mother’s Day.
