The Reason Why Tamron Hall Kept Her Pregnancy at 48 a Secret

Tamron Hall is finally opening up about why she kept her pregnancy a secret until she was a few weeks away from putting to bed, and it has a lot to do with fear.


The former “Today Show” host shocked fans in March when she revealed she was married and 32-weeks pregnant.


She and her music executive husband Steven Greener have since welcomed a son named Moses, but Hall now shares the unseen challenges that led to the birth of their “miracle baby.”

In her initial pregnancy announcement, Hall said: “there have been many tears, but today I embrace the smiles.”



At the time, many may not have understood the significance of that admission, but thanks to Hall’s recent exclusive interview with People Magazine, we know more.

The journalist disclosed that her pregnancy was “high-risk,” but it wasn’t only for the fact that she was expecting a baby at 48. “There were other medical factors too,” she said.



Because of her fragile medical state, Hall feared for the survival of her pregnancy.

“My doctor said, ‘This is your body, your health. You share of your journey what you want to share.’ I was terrified I would lose this baby and I would have to go back and tell everyone that now it was bad news, and after this pregnancy had gone so far.”



“I just wasn’t mentally prepared to deal with that,” she continued. “That’s why I waited. And trust me, if I could’ve gone the whole way to delivery, I would’ve.”

Hall’s fear must have been heightened by the fact that she had taken fertility treatments in her 30s, all to no avail. Going back to the fertility clinic as a 40-something woman was no comforting experience, she explained.


“I knew that the clock was not on my side,” Hall acknowledged. “When I tried in my 30s, I still felt like I had some time, and the fertility clinic felt like a bright room. In my 40s I saw all the gray: The faces looked gray, the walls were gray, nothing seemed shiny and optimistic.”



She equated the ordeal to her job search following her controversial replacement on the “Today” show’s third hour.

“Just like with my job search during that time, there were so many frustrations: I’m putting in the work, I’m taking care of my mind and my body and I’m being rejected. I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute. What have I done wrong here?’ Somehow, like Rocky, I kept getting up.”



That persistence paid off, both with motherhood and in her career. Hall’s healthy son, Moses, just made his magazine cover debut and the seasoned journalist is set to return to daytime television in September with her own syndicated show.

As Hall observed in her interview, “[Losing the ‘Today’ job] set me up for, yes, a dream job but also my baby, my husband, my family. I just couldn’t see it coming.”
