Before the bickering began between Kenya Moore and her “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast members during the Season 8 reunion show on Sunday, host Andy Cohen quizzed the former Miss USA winner about rumors she’s pregnant with her first child. Thanks to an interview Kenya’s castmate Phaedra Parks did last month, it’s been speculated that the 45-year-old Bravo star and her boyfriend, Matt Jordan, are expecting a child together.
However, instead of confirming or denying the baby rumors, Kenya smiled and told Cohen she wasn’t going to answer the question. “Wow, way to start Andy,” she said. “I can’t really tell you anything right now … Not right now, no.”
Fans quickly reacted to Kenya’s cryptic response, with some suggesting that Kenya was lying and seeking attention. Others, however, simply wanted the reality star to spill the beans.

As previously reported, during an appearance on “Dish Nation” Phaedra hinted that Kenya had a bun in the oven. Phaedra commented on the rumor again last month while on Cohen’s late night show “Watch What Happens Live,” saying that a “somewhat reliable source” told her Kenya and Matt are expecting.
“That’s what I heard,” Phaedra told Cohen, adding, “I have no proof.”
When NeNe Leakes was on “Watch What Happens Live" in February, she too was asked about the rumor and told Cohen she doubts her co-star is actually pregnant. “I was just with Kenya on her birthday,” NeNe explained (via Reality Tea). “And she had a cocktail. Actually, she had a couple.”
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season 8 reunion will air part two of three Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
