Porsha Williams has a reason to be excited.
And also a reason to be apprenhensive.
And it's actually the same reason for both emotions...
... the reality star is PREGNANT!
The veteran Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member is expecting a child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley, she gushes to People Magazine.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings," Williams explains, expounding on the reason why:
"The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear.
"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.
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."
(A myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus, typically during childbearing years.)
At the time Willams gave this interview to People, she had not yet had an official medical scan of the baby.
She said she'll feel far more relaxed and be able to "wrap my mind around" being a mother once everything comes back okay.
No matter what, however, she stressed that she has the greatest partner imaginable in McKinley.
This is what she said to People about him:
“The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me - it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me - and it’s something we’ve both always wanted...
"It’s like a dream come true.”
Williams wasn't even done saying amazing things about her man, who she started dating a few months ago after having known him for years;
“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me. It’s just the sweetest moment of my life right now.”
It sounds like Porsha had basically given up hope of becoming a mother.
She wasn't really trying to get pregnant, but then... presto!
“The pregnancy came from the left, but it definitely has brought us closer together because you realize when it sets in that you are actually bringing a life to this world, that you have become family overnight,” the reality star said.
“So now a lot of the things that we had talked about are a reality, and we work really hard at wanting to be a good couple and build a strong foundation for our new family that we’re going to have."
CONGRATULATIONS TO PORSHA WILLIAMS!
