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! ◼
