Kenya Moore and husband Marc Daly are new parents! The couple welcomed their daughter Brooklyn Doris Daly earlier today on Sunday, Nov. 4, PEOPLE exclusively reports. Brooklyn, who weighed in at 5 lbs. and 12 oz, is the first child for the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband.
As for why the couple named their daughter Brooklyn, Kenya explains, “Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me.
Kenya, who conceived through in vitro fertilization, gave birth via emergency cesarean section after revealing on Oct. 27 that she was diagnosed with Preeclampsia, which caused her to gain “17 lbs. in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.”
Both mother and child are said to be doing well.
