'RHOA's Porsha Williams Gives Birth To Her First Child, A Baby Girl, With Fiancé Dennis McKinley
There is a new addition to the Real Housewives of Atlanta family. And it isn't a new housewife — it's much more exciting than that. On Friday, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams gave birth to her first child, a girl, with her fiancé Dennis McKinley, and fans could not be happier for the housewife (especially the "king of the housewives," Andy Cohen).
The wait is finally over. Williams gave birth to a baby girl weighing 6 lbs., 15 oz., and measuring 20 inches long on Friday afternoon, the couple confirmed to People. "What a time to be alive!," the couple told People in a statement. "Porsha and I are so happy and blessed to announce the arrival of our daughter, baby PJ."
Awwww. You can sense the couple's excitement over this major news, and who can blame them? It's been six months since Williams announced that she was pregnant for the first time, six years after having a miscarriage, according to People.
"Congratulations to Porsha on your baby!," Cohen tweeted on Friday. "I hope to make a love connection for a Ben!"
Williams' journey to this point has been quite the adventure. She told People in September that her pregnancy came as a bit of a surprise — and she was afraid because of her history with miscarriages.
"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," Williams said. "So just the fear of, 'Is the baby going to be ok? Will I make it full term?' All those questions that you ask if you've had a miscarriage before."
Once Williams became more comfortable with her pregnancy, however, she was loving every second of it. She was super into her pregnancy cravings and revealed that she cried when her Uber Eats driver delivered her food to her home, according to Us Weekly.
And earlier this month, Williams only had the best things to say about her pregnancy. She told Us Weekly that she was "happy, healthy, and [has] really enjoyed each stage of being pregnant."
But, it's a little unclear what the couple decided to name their baby. Since the time that Williams got pregnant, they've been referring to their baby as PJ — which stands for Porsha Jr. — and could quite possibly be the name of their daughter. "One of the names that he has absolutely settled on — I'm not settled on it yet — is PJ," Williams explained to People in September.
But Williams felt like her daughter would be mad at her in the future if she named her after herself. "I'm not really sure, she's going to be mad, like, 'Really, Mom?' And then I'm going to have to try to explain it and he's probably going to deny that it was all his idea."
When the couple decides on a name, there is no doubt that Porsha will share it on her Instagram account (where she shares everything else, for that matter). But until then, fans should let the new mama enjoy these very exciting first moments with her daughter. Judging from all that Porsha has said about pregnancy, she is very excited to meet her.
