It’s happening! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore posted the sweetest video of her 13-month-old daughter, Brooklyn Doris, taking her very first steps — and, needless to say, we’re thrilled the proud mama caught the moment on camera. The 48-year-old posted the milestone moment to her Instagram feed on December 11.
“Taking my first steps!!!!” the Bravo TV babe captioned the short clip, clearly unable to contain her excitement. She even included the hashtags “#miraclebaby” and “#babybrooklyn,” plus the baby and expanding heart emojis. In the vid, the tiny tot took her first few steps in a cute pink top and jeans, with the family dog watching on for moral support. After a few steps, she fell forward (as most first-time walkers do) and got back into her crawling game.
Naturally, several of Kenya’s celebrity friends flocked to the comments section to congratulate the thrilled mama on the exciting moment in her baby’s development. “OMG!!!! She is walking,” RHOA castmate Cynthia Bailey wrote, adding a clapping emoji, while costar Kandi Burruss added, “Yay!!!!!” with a raised hands emoji.
Even a few other Housewives chimed in on the post. “Wow!!!” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne gushed, while Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant hilariously added, “Oh, it’s on now!” You can say that again.
Kenya recently spoke with Life & Style exclusively about how motherhood has been treating her — and it’s no surprise the brunette beauty thinks it’s just one big blessing. “Absolutely amazing, more than I could ever expect,” the reality star exclusively gushed to LS back in early November. “My daughter is the happiest baby in the world and she is just coming into her own.”
The Detroit native had been vocal about her desire for children prior to her pregnancy, even just in subtle Instagram comments. Back in November 2017, she lamented on the social media platform about her wishes while on a trip with her now-estranged husband, Marc Daly. “My twins King and Twirl,” she wrote of her dogs. “They bring so much fulfillment in my life, calm, happiness, and purpose. I can only imagine what children can do.”
Luckily, now she knows. Congrats, Brooklyn!
