Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams recently revealed that she has had a dream of hers come true. Six years after suffering a miscarriage, Williams announced she is expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley. But, the pregnancy news came at the end of shooting for the upcoming RHOA season, and producers are now scrambling to do re-shoots, so they can include the pregnancy.
“Porsha teased her pregnancy the whole time she was filming,” claims an insider. “She would never give a straight answer about being pregnant, but it was clear that she wanted everyone to know.”

Fans will remember that a couple of seasons back, Williams almost got fired from RHOA after Phaedra Parks got her involved in the Kandi Burruss drug and rape scandal. But, ultimately it was just Parks who got the boot. And now that Kenya Moore is no longer on the show, it will be Williams’ pregnancy that is featured on the popular Bravo reality show.
It makes sense that Williams wanted to wait a little bit before announcing her pregnancy, out of fear of having another miscarriage. The inside source says that no one is mad at her for not saying anything sooner because they understand that she wanted to make it to the “safe zone” before sharing her pregnancy news.
But now, according to Radar Online, Williams is going to have to shoot “pick up scenes” about the pregnancy, and RHOA will also feature her relationship with McKinley so fans can get to know him before they announce their baby news on the show.
Williams told People Magazine that when she found out she was expecting, she was excited and scared. Because of her past miscarriage — and because she has also had a myomectomy — she immediately wondered if the baby would be okay, and whether or not she would make it full term.
However, after going to her first doctor appointment and getting the chance to see and hear her baby, now Williams knows the baby is fine, and she can start to wrap her mind around the idea of becoming a mom.
The 37-year-old said that it was a dream come true to be blessed with a child after praying for it for so long. And, she says that having a child with McKinley is great because this is his first baby, too, and he is just as excited as she is.
Williams and McKinley have known each other for years but just started dating this past year. She says that he has shed more tears than her during the process, and it has been the sweetest moment of her life.
Porsha Williams told McKinley she was pregnant on his birthday back in July, but she says it was hard to do because she had to wait after finding out the news herself. She added that, even though the baby was a surprise, it has brought them closer together.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo later this year.
