Astrid Stawiarz/Getty ImagesSince leaving morning TV over two years ago, Tamron Hall is embracing three big things in her life: a new baby, a new husband, and launching a new show.
Hall gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Moses, at age 48 last month after years of trying to conceive with her husband, music manager Steven Greener.
“My doctor, who was amazing, at the time said we need to wait — we want to take our time and make sure that everything is going in the right direction,” Hall told ABC’s Good Morning America about her decision to not immediately share her pregnancy news.
“I wanted to share the news, but… if it did not work out I don’t think I was mentally prepared to tell people,” she continued. “I had had other failed rounds of IVF and you tell your friends, ‘Okay, this is it. This is it.’ And it doesn’t happen and I wasn’t, honestly I don’t know if I was strong enough, to be able to share the sad news.”
Hall said her intentions behind keeping her pregnancy private were often misconstrued.
“People mistake privacy for secrecy and I wasn’t keeping a secret,” she said. “I just so desperately wanted it to work out.”
Aside from being a new mommy, Hall is gearing up for her daytime show, Tamron Hall, coming in just a few months. Hall wants her story and perseverance to convince others not to give up as well.
“I was never the person that people would root for. I was the underdog,” she said. “My story was supposed to already have been told, and there I was losing something that I had poured my entire life in.”
Tamron Hall premieres September 9.
