RHOA star Porsha Williams is expecting a little one with her boyfriend Dennis McKinley, she confirmed in People. While she dished on her excitement, she was also open about her concerns in motherhood.
“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 says. This is her first child with Mckinley after Williams went through romantic challenges of finding love on RHOA.
“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,” says Williams. “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,” shares Williams, 37.
“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.”
Williams has openly shared her dreams of becoming a mom throughout her journey on RHOA.
“I am a hopeless romantic. People have seen that throughout the seasons,” she told Bravo. “I’ve lived my life on television like any other girl. You know, we date someone, it doesn’t work out. You put your all into it, it doesn’t work out. It’s happened to me right in front of everyone’s eyes. … So I could be a believer, it just depends.”
Congratulations to both of the parents-to-be!
