Kenya Moore Celebrates Baby-to-Be with Majestic Fairytale-Themed Baby Shower â" See the Photos!
Kenya Moore was showered with love on Saturday afternoon, as family and friends gathered to celebrate her upcoming baby-to-be in an extravagant fairytale-themed baby shower.
The regal Real Housewives of Atlanta alum â" who is expecting her first child next month with husband Marc Daly â" was the center of attention at the event, which was held from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the historic Academy of Medicine in the heart of Atlanta.
Among the attendees were a slew of Mooreâs former Bravo costars and colleagues, including Atlanta Housewives Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams; RHOA pals Shamea Morton, Carmon Cambrice, Miss Lawrence and Brandon Deshazer; Real Housewives of Potomacâs Gizelle Bryant; and Married to Medicineâs Dr. Heavenly Kimes and Toya B ush-Harris.
All looked the part, dressing up for the eventâs vibe, which was proclaimed by âroyal decreeâ on the invitation to be âMet Gala with a fairytale theme.â
âPlease use your imagination,â Moore and Daly wrote. âWe strongly encourage creativity.â

Burruss, 42, stood out in an ice-queen inspired look, with a long silver wig, tiara and plunging and sparkling silver gown. Bailey, 51, was a golden warrior queen in a blonde wig and gold crown, a dazzling statement necklace and a flowing dress with a fitted gold bodice and white skirt.
Kimes, 47, wore a black number with a sheer cape, while Bush-Harris, 42, opted for a pink princess ballgown.
Meanwhile, Bryant, 48, and Williams, 37, both rocked green â" the latterâs high-cut bedazzled dress showing off her own growing baby bump. Later, Williams took off her long brown wig but kept on the bling of her crown as she packed on the PDA in a video with fiancÃ© Dennis McKinley.

Moore, the former Miss USA, stunned while channeling BeyoncÃ© in a fitted gold dress with a long owl-feathered cape and heavy gold crown. Her husband, Daly, kept it classic in a blue tuxedo with a crisp white shirt worn without a tie.
âThank you for indulging me in dressing up and doing something different,â Moore told the crowd upon her arrival at the showerâs seated dinner. âI really appreciate you guys.â
âIâm just so happy,â she gushed, before taking her seat on an oversized gold throne seated atop a stage and surrounded by her âroyal court.â
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour before dinner and were later treated to âentertainment and festivi ties.â
Sadly, RHOA fans wonât get to see the event play out on television when the showâs eleventh season premieres in November. Moore chose not to return to the series, a disappointment for longtime viewers of the show hoping to see her journey continue.
Moore had long spoken on the show about her desire to start a family and had announced that sheâs pregnant during the first part of the season 10 RHOA reunion.
âIâve waited 47 years for this moment,â Moore, who conceived through in vitro fertilization, told PEOPLE at the time. âI didnât really want to announce it too soon because I feel itâs very early on in our pregnancy. But I have suffered so much in my life when it comes to wanting a family around me. So this is the day Iâve been waiting for my entire life. Itâs a dream come true.â
Though the cameras havenât been there, Moore has been keeping fans updated on her latest pregnancy milestones on social media â" including her weight gain and baby shopping trips.
On Wednesday, she shared a 3D image of her growing âmiracleâ baby from an ultrasound on Instagram. In the caption, she pointed out that the baby â" whose sex she and Daly are keeping a surprise until his/her birth â" closely resembles Daly.
âOMG the baby has daddyâs lips and nose!â Moore wrote, also sharing a side-by-side image of Dalyâs lips and her babyâs mouth.Source: Google News Kenya | Netizen 24 Kenya
