Kenya Moore celebrated her 49th birthday on Friday and looked back at the past year amid her pending divorce from husband Marc Daly.
“Happy Birthday to Me! Whew this has been quite a year! Despite the turmoil there has been a constant positive force of love and light in my life. God brought this Angel into my world who is the miracle known as Brooklyn and everyday is my birthday. How did she get here? Why did she choose me? She knew I needed her far more than she needed me,” The Real Housewives of Atlanta star captioned under an adorable photo of her and her 14-month-old daughter, Brooklyn Daly.
She continued, “You are my life Brooklyn, my happiness, my joy, and the unconditional love I waited my whole life for. You have my grandmother’s spirit. She left me so I could have you.I live my whole life for you. You are everything that is good in me and you inspire me to be better everyday. You are my legacy. My only birthday wish is may God continue to cover you and bless you forever and always. I pray for these things Jehovah in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen.”
Moore and Daly announced their separation after two years of marriage on September 19, 2019.
“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” Moore said in exclusive statements to PEOPLE. “Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”
Daly added, “I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time. Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible. I cherish our family’s good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”
