Reality star Porsha Williams is pregnant with her first child.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star announced she was expecting a baby with her boyfriend Dennis McKinley in the latest edition of People magazine, posing for a photoshoot in which she cups her bump and she smiles for the camera while wearing a figure-hugging purple dress.
She explained to the publication that she was both excited and worried at first, because she had a miscarriage six years ago and because she suffers from fibroids, non-cancerous growths, which she has had surgery on.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited (but) I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear,” she confessed. “I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy… So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.
“Going into the first appointment and being able to see baby and hear baby and know that baby is fine, then I can really wrap my mind around actually becoming a mommy.”
The 37-year-old admitted the baby was a surprise for them both, but a “dream come true” as she had been wanting one for so long.
The child also marks McKinley’s first child. The Dish Nation star had known him for years, but they only began dating this past year.
She was previously married to American football player Kordell Stewart from 2011 and 2013.
