Kenya Moore’s baby, Brooklyn Daly, is giving us all of the cuteness. The little one was recently filmed while visiting the doctor’s office. Baby Brooklyn was excited even while waiting for her examination.
The little one moved around on her stomach while waiting in the exam room. “Are you ready for your shots,” Kenya asked her daughter. At one point, it looked like Brooklyn answered her mom in the affirmative. The little one was definitely happier that most kids who dread the doctor’s office because of immunization shots.
Kenya Moore delved into feelings of depression that took her by surprise when she was pregnant during her recent talk with the ladies of Sister Circle.
“When I was pregnant, I didn’t realize that I would actually go through depression,” Kenya shared. “I think in the beginning, I thought, ‘I finally got everything that I wanted.’ Here I am. The baby is kind of out of the zone where they say it’s not safe or may not survive. And I thought, ‘I should be happy. I should be like, celebrating every day and just having so much fun being a great pregnant woman.’ And I was so depressed at first. I never expected that. I never saw that coming.”
Of course, Moore understands that what she was feeling was nothing more than the effects of hormonal imbalance. “Many women go through [that stage],” she admitted. “I just didn’t know that it would actually happen to me because I’m thinking, ‘I finally got what I wanted.’ And now, after 46 years, [I thought] that it would be different for me. But it wasn’t.”
Feelings of depression turned into overwhelming joy the moment that Kenya Moore met her daughter for the first time. “I’m going to be there for my daughter,” Kenya shared with the co-hosts of Sister Circle. “I’m going to be the best role model I can possibly be,” the RHOA alum added.
“[I’m going to] give her the love, affection, and the wings to grow and be whomever she wants to be in her life. Just being a real friend, mother, and someone who really cares. [I want to be] someone she can always count on.”
Depression during and after pregnancy occur more often than most people realize. Depression during pregnancy is also called antepartum or prenatal depression, and depression after pregnancy is called postpartum depression.
Brooklyn Daly is Kenya Moore and husband Marc Daly’s only child.
