Kenya Moore welcomed her first child, 47, after 20 years of trying, and is now determined to help other women who are experiencing conception problems.
The star of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, mother of 20-month-old Broolyn, has sponsored a grant through the Baby Quest Foundation to provide financial support to families in their home town of Detroit who need help paying for assisted conception, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or surrogacy, reports People.
"I've been waiting for most of my life to have a child," says Moore, who has undergone IVF to have her. "So I knew all the agony that someone feels, especially a woman, thinking that I may not be able to have a dream about a child."
"I didn't want to have a child alone. I didn't want to be a single mother. So I waited and after 40 I looked up and thought," Oh my god, "she says.
Then Moore met husband Marc Daly at the age of 46 and a year later the couple had Brooklyn. Daly and Moore announced that they will split up in September 2019, but they have since said that they are "trying everything to stay together".
