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.”
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 Baileyand Porsha Williams.
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 AtlantaQuad 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 Dooralum 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:
