Congratulations are in order for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams, who announced she is pregnant on her Instagram page this morning:
Porsha’s announcement comes 6 years after she says she suffered a disheartening miscarriage while still married to former NFL great Kordell Stewart.
This will be Porsha’s first child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley.
Williams admitted to People Magazine that she is experienced both excitement about her pregnancy, and fear as a result of the 2012 miscarriage:
“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 said.
“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,” continues Williams, 37. “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.”
