KENYA TELLS ALL Kenya Moore shares her motherhood plans with In Touch.
Real Housewives diva Kenya Moore is ready for babies, whether there’s a man in the picture or not!
After spending most of her life content with her modeling and acting career and swearing she would never have kids, Kenya Moore, 45, suddenly realized something was missing. “I got this overwhelming feeling that I wanted children,” says the Real Housewives of Atlanta star. So the former Miss USA — who’s currently single after her four-month romance with trainer Matt Jordan ended in May — began fertility treatments last December. “I feel like I have so much love to give,” she tells In Touch’s Amanda Williams. “I think I’ll be a great mom.” Here, Kenya opens up about her family plans, plastic surgery rumors and a surprising hidden talent.
For a long time, you were convinced that you didn’t want children. What changed? KM: In the past, I was afraid of motherhood. But my life changed and it became something I’ve been longing for. I have the support system in place and I love kids.
How many do you want? KM: If I only had one it would be fine but ideally, I’d love two. And I feel like I would be better with boys. I love girls but they require so much!
You look amazing! What’s your secret? KM: I try to exercise five times a week. I like yoga, Pilates and anything outdoors — hiking, playing basketball or tennis, jogging. I don’t drink a lot of alcohol, I don’t do drugs. I just take care of myself.
What about your diet? KM: A lot of fish and vegetables and seafood. Every now and then I will have some meat, but very rarely.
Do you ever indulge? KM: French fries are my weakness. And pancakes!
You’ve been accused of having plastic surgery on your butt — any truth to the rumors? KM: I haven’t had any surgery, but I’m not opposed to it.
You’re in your 40s now — how would you say your body is now compared to 20 years ago? KM: It’s hard to compare your 20-year-old self to your self now, but I’m more confident.
That’s sure to help when you become a mom. What kind of parent do you think you’ll be? KM: I will be loving and caring, but I’m definitely a disciplinarian. I was raised to obey adults and show them respect. I want to get back to that old-fashioned way! ◼
