In an interview with  People, the former "Today" host, 48, explained why she   waited until she was at 32 weeks to share the news of her pregnancy.           

“I was high-risk, not just because of my age, but there were other medical factors, too,” she told the magazine. “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.”          

She continued, “My doctor said, ‘This is your body, your health. You share of your journey what you want to share.' I just wasn’t mentally prepared to deal with that. That’s why I waited. And trust me – if I could’ve gone the whole way to delivery, I would’ve.”          

Tamron Hall welcomed her first child at 48 years old.

Hall shared baby Moses with husband Steven Greener, a music manager. 

Hall also revealed she had an "eye-opening" experience visiting a fertility clinic again years after unsuccessful treatments in her 30s.          

“I knew that the clock was not on my side,” she admitted. “When I tried in my 30s, I still felt like I had some time, and the fertility clinic felt like a bright room. In my 40s, I saw all the gray: The faces looked gray, the walls were gray, nothing seemed shiny and optimistic.”

She continued, “Just like with my job search during that time, there were so many frustrations: I’m putting in the work, I’m taking care of my mind and my body and I’m being rejected. I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute. What have I done wrong here?’ Somehow, like Rocky, I kept getting up.”
