Congrats to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams who welcomed her first child, a baby girl on Friday.
“What a time to be alive!” Porsha and fiance businessman Dennis McKinley said in a joint statement to People magazine. “Porsha and I are so happy and blessed to announce the arrival of our daughter, Baby PJ. We couldn’t have imagined a more magical moment! Can’t thank everyone enough for joining us on this journey-it’s been a fantastic journey.”
Per the mag, the Dish Nation host welcomed her daughter at 1:36 p.m., weighs 6 lbs., 15 oz., and measures 20 inches long
Her sisterLauren Williams posted, but now deleted, on Instagram a photo of her and Porsha in her hospital room, as well as a screenshot of a text message exchange with Dennis. He wrote, “She’s here.” She responded, “Omggg” and “Lemme see!!!!!!!”
We loved her tender message about the impending arrival in an instagram speech in place of the one she was going to give at the baby shower:
McKinley gave his followers a heads up when he posted a photo from the hospital bed when presumably Porsha was going to be induced.
The good news come after a traumatic loss from her past pregnancy.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings,” Porsha told People when she first announced the news. “The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear.”
She previously told People.com: “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 myomectomythis.
“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.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and fiancé businessman Dennis McKinley celebrated the impending arrival of their first child together last month on February 24 at the Suada Studio in Atlanta, Georgia.

There are rumors that Williams had inked a Baby Special and from the looks of it, based on all the TV crew professional videographers at the event, it appears so.

One thing we can say about Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is that she has mastered the art of the maternity shoot.

When the Real Housewives of Atlanta arrived, the place fell silent and everyone was stunned by their fabulousness;
John Mayer, who is Cohen’s buddy, was impressed with Leakes who kept everyone in stitches;
Cohen was surprised to see Phaedra Parks who he had fired there and who Leakes probably invited in a rumored attempt to keep the RHOA franchise amidst falling ratings

Rinna was the life of the party and got everyone to dance on tables

The seated plated event was held at the Historic Academy of Medicine building at George Tech University, a venue used often for lavish banquets, weddings and other formal events.
It was held in an intimate sized ornately decorated room, draped in lighted organza, green carpet, golden thrones and everything needed to resemble an enchanted forest.
Guests of the October 20th event included family, friends and former castmates Porsha Williams, Kandi Burrus, Cynthia Bailey, and Claudia Jordan along with “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant, Married to Medicine stars Toya Bush-Harris and Dr. Heavenly Kimes among others.

The news came with trepidation because the stage actress suffered a previous miscarriage six years ago.
“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, who suffered a miscarriage six years ago, told PEOPLE in an interview for the newest issue, out Friday.
“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.”
She raves of 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.”
“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me,” Williams tells PEOPLE of McKinley, whom she has known for years but only began dating this past year. “It’s just the sweetest moment of my life right now.”
