Kenya Moore is always up to something that has people buzzing. Most recently, it's been the possibility that her longtime dream of becoming a mother is finally coming true. She's mostly twirled around the subject of a possible pregnancy over the last month or so, but vows that it is going to happen much sooner rather than later. "Definitely this year is my year, you know? So it's going to happen," The Real Housewives of Atlanta star told The Daily Dish at the NBCUniversal upfront presentation this week. "And you just have to watch and wait for an official announcement until I'm comfortable."
Kenya is staying tight-lipped about her road to motherhood, but she's definitely more open to chatting about her boyfriend, Matt Jordan, who has been rather hands on in making another one of her goals come to fruition: Moore Manor. "He's sweet. Yeah, he has a pretty amazing body, yes. He has to do yard work. He has to lift things and do all kinds of things around the house," Kenya said. "I'm just excited about it."
Kenya recently moved into the her dream home, and continues to work on all the finishing touches. "We're still doing some work. It's a lot of dust and still little things around the house that we're working on. I'm in there. Oh, it's so peaceful," she said. "Oh my God! I drive home sometimes, I stop in the driveway, and I take photos of my house because it's just so peaceful and I just couldn't believe that that day would come." Kenya cites her bedroom as her favorite place in the house since the tranquil space is "just nothing but windows and trees." And she's even dreaming up the right bed to help her secure some beauty sleep. "I'm working on the furniture right now. I had to finish the house first and then decorate... I'm getting a custom bed made and it's pretty awesome," she explained, before revealing the one item she knew she just had to have for the Manor. "Probably a lighting fixture that I just recently purchased. Lighting fixtures are everything. They underestimate lighting [but] lighting makes a room."
And while Kenya's celebrating her own home, she also notes that Sheree Whitfield has yet to make her Chateau a reality. "I pass by it everyday. She's still not moved in yet, so I don't know," she said. "We'll see; TBD for five more years."
