What a difference a few years can make!

Tamron Hall went from NBC Today host and MSNBC news anchor to walking away from all that to becoming mother and wife. And on the newest cover of PEOPLE Magazine, the 48-year-old shows off her newborn Moses’ face for the very first time.

Awwww…isn’t he adorable?


In the interview with the popular celebrity and lifestyle publication, the veteran journalist opened up about her difficult journey to motherhood and why she waited until she was 32 weeks along to share her good news with the public.

“I was high-risk, not just because of my age, but there were other medical factors too,” adding that she wanted to wait to share news that she was pregnant our of fear she might miscarry.

“My doctor said, ‘This is your body, your health. You share of your journey what you want to share,’ ” she recalled.

“I was terrified I would lose this baby and I would have to go back and tell everyone that now it was bad news, and after this pregnancy had gone so far.”

“I just wasn’t mentally prepared to deal with that,” Hall continues. “That’s why I waited. And trust me — if I could’ve gone the whole way to delivery, I would’ve.”

Hall also admitted that after she left NBC she had no real plan, but believes that the plan for her family had been set, she just didn’t know it at the time.

“My story is not one I could’ve ever expected,” the Texas native told PEOPLE.

“Two and a half years ago when I walked out of that NBC building, I was in a fog, not knowing that so many of us lose things we think are important, and we have no idea that something better is right there.”

“I’m from the South, and there’s a saying: ‘It’s not a setback; it’s a setup for something else,’ ” she adds. “That loss set me up for, yes, a dream job but also my baby, my husband, my family. I just couldn’t see it coming.”

As we previously reported, on April 24, Hall gave birth to her healthy baby boy.


In 2017, Hall left NBC News to pursue greener pastures and that’s exactly what happened. Not only is her new talk show debuting this fall, but she announced a few months ago that she is pregnant with her first child at the age of 48-years-old and is married.

“When one song captures the personal news I want to share with you (yes, you)!” the 48-year-old captioned on the video she posted on March 4.

In the cute clip, the mom-to-be bopped to “Baby Shark” covering her bump to then reveal her good news!

She later shared on Instagram, “I’ve wanted to share this news for many months and now finally my doctor has said I am in a safe place, at 32 weeks, to share my joy with y’all. So, it’s clear a daytime talk show isn’t the only thing I’ve been trying to produce! There have been many tears, but today I embrace the smiles.”

Adding, “My husband Steven and I are beyond excited! We’re in constant prayer, so if you pray, add us to your list; if you meditate, send calmness our way; and if you believe in luck, we’ll happily take that too. More to share in a few weeks when the baby arrives! Next chapter! Blessed and Grateful.”

From enjoying her pregnancy to finally getting to enjoy her bundle of joy, here is Tamron living her best life on the ‘Gram! We couldn’t be happier for her!
