As she celebrates turning 49, Kenya Moore is counting her blessings. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member shared her gratitude for her daughter, Brooklyn Doris Daly, and reflected on a tumultuous year in an emotional message posted on the day of her birthday.
On January 24, Kenya took to Instagram to share a photo of herself looking stunning in a white, strapless bodysuit while holding an adorable, smiling Brooklyn, who celebrated her first birthday in November. Alongside the beautiful photo, the RHOA mom looked back at some the ups and downs of the past year, during which she split from ex-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,” she wrote. “God brought this Angel into my world who is the miracle known as Brooklyn and everyday is my birthday.”
The former pageant queen went on to give thanks for her baby girl, writing, “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.”
She concluded her moving message by sharing the one thing she really wants for her birthday, stating, “My only birthday wish is may God continue to cover you and bless you forever and always.”
Kenya and Marc announced their divorce in September, following two years of marriage. Since their split, the two have remained amicable co-parents to little Brooklyn, even enjoying some quality family time together in New York last month.
RHOA airs on Sundays at 9/8c. Get a sneak peek at what Kenya and the other Atlanta ladies are up during the rest of the season, below:
