Kenya Moore and her husband Marc Daly welcomed their beautiful daughter, Brooklyn Doris Daly, back in November 2018. Daly traditionally likes to leave the spotlight to his wife. But recently, he made an exception while joining her on The Tamron Hall Show to discuss their experience with in-vitro fertilization.
Moore has always open about the fact that her journey to motherhood wasn’t easy. She, along with celebrity moms like Remy Ma and Gabrielle Union, have shared their struggles to conceive in hopes that their transparency will make other women feel less alone. However, stories from fathers who experience the IVF process right along with them is rare.
“You agreed to come out because you really wanted to talk to other men, other husbands, significant others, partners going through this,” Hall began. “What was it like for you?”
Daly responds, saying, “It’s incredibly challenging because the success rate for these treatments are very low. So there’s a lot of disappointment, expectations, and you also have to be prepared for disappointment so just being there, being supportive, being hopeful, and being just positive and being behind her is what it’s really about.”
The couple was then joined by baby Brooklyn, and Marc admitted that he couldn’t bring himself to administer Kenya’s progesterone shots. “To be fair, I never did that. I hate needles so I didn’t do that,” Marc said. Kenya confirmed that she did both suppositories and shots, but that she also had a fear of needles.
“It’s great that celebrities are being more open about their experiences with pregnancy loss and infertility, since it helps others in this situation realize how common it is,” Kenya said. “When we see celebrities with baby bumps and perfect-looking families, it’s so easy to think that they had an easy path to parenthood. By opening up about their struggles, people in the public eye can help others feel less alone.”
Bravo to this couple for their strength and their testimony! See a gallery of The Daly’s cutest family moments.
