Tamron Hall, 48, Is Married *and* Pregnant With her First Child: "There Have Been Many Tears, but Today I Embrace the Smiles"
"I’ve wanted to share this news for many months and now finally my doctor has said I am in a safe place, at 32 weeks, to share my joy with y’all,” the former TODAY show co-host shared on Instagram.
Tamron Hall is married and expecting her first child! The former TODAY anchor, 48, announced that she's 32 weeks along via a pair of adorable Instagram posts.
"When one song captures the personal news I want to share with you (yes, you)!" she captioned one adorable video of her revealing her bump to the tune of "Baby Shark."
Up until now, she kept this (and her betrothal to a man named Steven) a secret.
"I’ve wanted to share this news for many months and now finally my doctor has said I am in a safe place, at 32 weeks, to share my joy with y'all," she wrote in a second post. "So, it’s clear a daytime talk show isn’t the only thing I’ve been trying to produce! There have been many tears, but today I embrace the smiles. My husband Steven and I are beyond excited! We're in constant prayer, so if you pray, add us to your list; if you meditate, send calmness our way; and if you believe in luck, we’ll happily take that too. More to share in a few weeks when the baby arrives! Next chapter! Blessed and Grateful.
Tamron is one of many women who are waiting until their mid to late 40s to get pregnant who can work towards having healthy pregnancies with a mindful approach to their bodies and the risks involved.
"Women are now putting childbearing on hold because we’re pursuing careers," said Dr. Jackie Walters, who viewers will recognize from Married to Medicine. "We want to become president, right? It’s the wave of the future. Girl power, I call it, and women’s empowerment. But certainly, the body doesn’t know that. As we get older, or more mature I’ll call it, the risk of 20 is higher, gestational hypertension or high blood pressure during pregnancy, gestational diabetes is higher. There are more risk factors. Miscarriage, chromosome abnormalities like Down Syndrome is higher. Just be aware so that you can certainly report to your doctor any early signs of any of this. If we can get to it earlier, we can certainly get you a good pregnancy or attempt to get a good pregnancy out of it. Just know your body. Be aware that you are at more risk and do everything that you can to stay healthy.”
