Broadcast journalist Tamron Hall announced that she was 32 weeks pregnant with her first child in March. Hall explained her decision to keep her pregnancy secret Wednesday during an interview with PEOPLE.
“I was high-risk, not just because of my age, but there were other medical factors,” the 48-year-old said. “My doctor said, ‘This is your body, your health. You share of your journey what you want to share,” she continued.
Hall’s concerns about her pregnancy fueled her desire to keep it under wraps. “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 explained. “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.”
Hall and her music manager husband Steven Greener welcomed their son, Moses, on April 24. Along with keeping news of her baby offline, she also kept details about her marriage secret, too.
She told PEOPLE, ” This was my deepest, greatest love, and I’d never talked about my personal life on TV. I always thought, ‘One day I’ll get married, and I don’t want my husband to have to look at old episodes of me gushing over the last guy.’ So I’ve always been very cautious. I think today, people mistake privacy for secrecy. People say he’s my ‘secret husband.’ But we were going everywhere together; it was just a private thing I needed to protect.”
