“I plan on having a baby next year,” she told the magazine in a tearful, emotional interview. “Within the next six months, I hope to be pregnant.”
Moore, a 1993 Miss USA winner, has never been married and has no children. She bonded with Porsha Williams (who had a miscarriage while married to Kordell Stewart) in last Sunday's episode over being childless. She has been somewhat more revealing about her life this season versus last year.
One thing she has been vague about: she said she is dating some sort of rich dude who works in Africa but won't reveal who that person is. (Assuming he is for real, perhaps he doesn't want to get involved in reality show shenanigans.)
In any case, her option right now is in vitro, whether she uses her boyfriend's sperm or someone else's.
Moore's urgency is for good reason. A study in the medical journal "Fertility and Sterility" found a 40-year-old women treated for infertility had a 25 percent chance of achieving pregnancy using their own eggs. By age 43, that number fell to 10 percent. By 44, it had plummeted still further, to 1.6 percent.
