The Realhousewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille celebrated the impending arrival of her third child with an intimate Flower themed garden baby shower over the weekend.
Her BRAVO TV co stars Cynthia Bailey, Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams, and friends of the housewives Shamea Morton and Marlo Hampton, along with Cynthia’s sister and occassional guest on the show Mal Bailey, all joined in the fun to celebrate Baby Maverick, the chosen name Marcille and her husband, attorney Michael Sterling, have selected for their second child together.
“Pardon me I must say initially I was not super excited about having a baby shower considering this is my third child,” Marcille captioned a stunning Instagram photo of herself o the big day. “However, waking up this morning I’m super excited and it is my joy to celebrate the welcoming of my newest Flower Child ‘Baby Maverick.’ The Sterling clan gets a little bit bigger.”
Her co-stars and other guests also posted pics of the event.
Congratulations to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley.
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.”
The TV host joins fellows co stars Kenya Moore and Shamea Moore
Last week was a busy one for some of Bravo TV‘s expecting Real Housewives.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Shamea Morton and Kenya Moore donned their best sports Jerseys and Jordan sneakers to attend Todd Tucker’s Jordans and Jerseys birthday party in Atlanta.
Earlier in the week, the former Miss USA and another Atlanta power couple hit up fellow RHOA castmember Kandi Burruss‘ Old Lady Gang (“OLG”) restaurant she owns with her husband.
Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels sported a tiny bump in a glamorous blush sequined gown while attending and taping that franchise’s reunion show which was spent “reading” a lot of her fellow cast members according to her caption.
“Baby daddy just checking on the bump after all the reading I had to do,” the Not for Lazy Moms lifestyle blogger captioned a pic of her husband Chris Samuels cradling his wife’s bump mid taping.
Real Housewives of Atlanta
Friend of the Wives Shamea Morton
and her husband Gerald Mwangi
hosted an over-the-top Gender Reveal party over the weekend. In attendance were RHOA
stars Kandi Burruss
and her husband Todd, Cynthia Bailey
and Porsha Williams.
“We’re waiting to find out what my boo @shameamorton is having! I’m #TeamBoy.” Burruss captioned a photo of her and hubby cradling Morton’s bump on her Instagram. “What do y’all think? Update: It’s a girl! ? #ShameaAndGeraldGenderReveal?: @hauseofglam
Turns out Burruss was wrong. The couple are actually expecting a girl which made Morton happy.
“I hope she’s a mini-me,” Shamea told US Weekly. “I do girls really well,” she added. “I was more terrified of a boy. I’m all for the tutus and bows.”
Gerald was equally excited to learn that he would welcome a girl later this year. “He already calls her his princess,” Shamea revealed. “He’s overjoyed.”
And boy was it quite the reveal! In a video produced by Freddy O, Morton shares that she had no clue what the baby’s sex was but was excited to learn.
The guests gathered outdoors to watch fireworks launch and eventually, the last set of explosions revealed pink works! It’s a girl!
“We showed our 45–minute wedding video and the entire house was quiet,” the former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader told Us. “There were even a few tears shed when we played our vows.”
Along with the fireworks display, revelers enjoyed a feast that included cupcakes, pulled pork, corn on the cob and rotisserie chicken.
Morton called the entire night was “a dream.”

Toya Wright celebrated the impending arrival of her second child at a baby shower in an Atlanta private residence this past MLK weekend.
It was a reality TV show reunion as some Our blog faves and bumpwatch alums Monica Brown, Monyetta Shaw and Rasheeda attended. Other stars of Atlanta-based shows Shamea Morton from Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta Quad Webb-Lunceford from that same network’s Married to Medicine.
The event featured personalized candy apples, candy bar and Rice Krispie treats and more. The theme was “Showering Reign”, a take off of the name she has selected for her daughter, though in one recent post, she referred to her baby as “Reignbeaux“, phonetic spin on Rainbow with a very unique spelling.
Wright also used the occasion to introduce the public to her beau and the baby’s dad Atlanta sports manager Robert “Red” Rushing. Up until this point, she had elected to conceal his identity. Secret’s out now!
If the baby’s name will be Reignbeaux, this will be the second celebrity baby Rainbow in recent years because The Girls Next Door alum Holly Madison‘s first child is also named Rainbow. Reign is also a bit popular recently among celebrities. Kourtney Kardashian‘s son is named Reign and that is the middle name of Lil Kim’s daughter Royal Reign.
Wright announced her pregnancy last September with a very creative scripted video featuring her daughter Reginae Carter with ex husband rapper Lil Wayne.
Oh and h/t from YBF, we learned that she also had a second shower with her fans. Nice! Here are photos shared by attendees:
