It's been a big few weeks for Real Housewives of Atlanta gossip…some good, some not so good. While the Bravo franchise had the worthy distinction of being the network's most watched show to date, newbie Porsha Stewart faced the news that husband Kordell was filing for divorce. In light of this terrible situation, Porsha did what any good housewife would do. She put on a brave face at the Bravo Upfronts presentation. Kudos to her for trying to maintain some normalcy…or at least what's normal in the life of a reality star!
Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks is looking forward to baby boy number two with husbandApollo Nida. Putting the much talked about Bootygate aside, the lawyer/mortician/over-the-top personality took some time to chat about her latest endeavors…mainly her expanding family. Let's hear the good stuff first!
“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth,” Phaedra reveals. She will be having a scheduled c-section in May.
Phaedra previously shared that the family was hoping for a girl, but maybe next time. “I would entertain a third child, but I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl," Phaedra reveals. "I think that would be plenty after that."
In the middle of donkey booty workout DVD wars, Phaedra Parks has other things to worry about! Like becoming a mother for the second time.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is currently in her second trimester (well at least that's what she says, but these RHOA ladies are a little sketchy about due dates!), and excited to be welcoming child number two into her family.
Sitting down with The Huffington Post, Phaedra reveals that son Ayden, now 2, wants a sister! “He is so excited,” Phaedra gushed. “He keeps saying, ‘I want a sister.’ He actually has a cousin. So he thought that was his sister because he gets to see her often.”
Phaedra shared the baby news with People that she and husband Apollo Nida are going to be parents again. Phaedra is expecting baby #2 sometime early next year. And judging by the photo she shared of her growing baby bump, it's going to be EARLY 2013!
Phaedra and Apollo are already parents to "Prince" Ayden Adonis Nida, 2. Congrats to Phaedra and Apollo! Lavish birthday parties live on!
I think the last term anyone would use to describe Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPhaedra Parks would be "wallflower." However, the outspoken Southern belle from Bravo's hit has been MIA lately, both on Twitter and on her show's blog. Many speculated that there was tension between her and Apollo Nida thanks to co-star Kenya Moore's relentless flirting with Phaedra's husband. Unfortunately, Kenya's inappropriate behavior has nothing to do with Phaedra's media absence.
Phaedra recently spoke out regarding her hiatus from all things social media, and my heart goes out to her. She now reveals that both she and her husband have both lost their maternal grandmothers. While I am sure both Phaedra and Apollo are grateful for having their grandmothers in their lives for so long, it's never, ever easy to lose a cherished family member, especially so close to the holidays. My positive thoughts are with both of them and their families.
