Kenya Moore recently shared details about the dramatic birth of her baby.
The 47-year-old actress welcomed daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly with husband Marc Daly into the world on Nov. 4, via emergency cesarean section after undergoing in vitro fertilization, with the little one weighing in at tiny 5 pounds and 12 ounces.
Moore has opened up about how doctors struggled to get her baby out because her fibroids were in the way. She was cut twice horizontally, and once vertically.
In an interview with People magazine, she shared: “They couldn’t get the baby out.
“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.”
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star — who was also diagnosed with preeclampsia, a pregnancy complication categorized by high blood pressure, which caused her to gain 17 pounds within a week — said she got herself into a state of worry because Daly wasn’t answering his phone and she cried her way through the emotionally tough experience.
“It was all happening so fast,” she said. “I started crying because I got so scared. I couldn’t get a hold of Marc, I didn’t know what was going to happen. I just remember feeling overwhelmed with emotion. It was really tough.”
She has shared the first photo of baby Brooklyn’s face with her Instagram followers and admits she is “so blessed” to be a mother to a “little angel.”
Posting a cute snap of Brooklyn — who has 17.6 thousand followers of her own on the social media app — snoozing on father’s arm, she wrote: “Daddy’s little girl #brooklyndaly #babydaly #love #family.”
