Although Porsha is elated about discovering that she will become a mom, it is not without trepidation. “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,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed to PEOPLE in an interview for the newest issue. “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,” continued Porsha. “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.” One can’t help but empathize with the ambitious, multi-talented television host and media personality who in essence, is just as real as the rest of us.
On September 19th, the true ‘cornbread-fed Georgia Peach,’ Porsha, born and raised into a prominent and historic family in Atlanta wrote on Instagram, “I am happy, healthy… and pregnant! #BabyMckinley #DM #Blessed … Love you all thank you for your support and warm wishes it means the world to us!” It’s also pretty spectacular news for Bravo TV and to prove it, they made sure that Porsha received superior recognition - a colossal raise. The idolized housewife parachuted from making $800,000 last season on the Real Housewives of Atlanta to $1.25 million - a generous surge for the housewife reputably earning the least of all the cast of ladies. Her massive payoff will only to continue to grow - as she continues to expose all the intimate details to her fans!
Porsha is expecting her perfect miracle with boyfriend Dennis McKinley and it’s just been announced on Radar that he’s going to put a ring on it on the set of RHOA! The now anticipated live footage of their engagement is exactly the real TV that fans crave and it’s going to be extraordinary! Fellow housewife Kenya Moore was not so real about exposing her private life, which led to the decision of the network to let her go on season ten. Secretly tying the knot with husband Marc Daly goes precisely against what is expected of the Georgia Peaches!
Porsha may have also shared the gender of her baby shortly after her thrilling announcement. The reality? Who could blame her? Having been candid about her past miscarriage could only mean she is moving forward. It’s a healthy, natural way of processing her feelings while at the same time inspiring other women to be brave and share their reality.
Porsha’s gender spill was certainly creative - she left a comment on beauty mogul Ming Lee's Instagram photo of four adorable baby girls, dressed in pink frills and rollers while napping on the salon hair dryer chairs. Her caption hinted that her baby is going to be a girl. "OMG I wish my baby was out!! I would have her right there getting done up LOL."
Her statement was as whimsical as Porsha herself and it could only mean wonderful things for the couple. Although skittish about going to into her first doctor's appointment, Porsha admits that once she actually sees and hears her precious baby she will freely consummate the phenomenon of becoming a mom. With that being said, we wish her all the marvel that motherhood has to offer and of course, a healthy pregnancy!
