Porsha also shared the saddest story on her IG account:
'TSR Prayers Up: A Brooklyn man is absolutely heartbroken after the love of his life passed away during childbirth over the Fourth of July weekend. Juwan Lopez says he and his girlfriend, 26-year-old paraprofessional Sha-Asia Semple, were ecstatic to bring a new life into this world after dating for the past two years, and recently moved into a new apartment to make room for their first child. They visited Woodhull Hospital on July 2nd, concerned about Sha-Asia’s blood pressure,' Porsha began her post.
She continued and said: 'On July 3rd, Sha-Asia went into labor and Juwan claims that she was given an epidural even though she voiced that she did not want one. Moments after he said he was asked to leave the room, Juwan saw Sha-Asia being rushed out of her hospital room for an emergency C-section. She reportedly passed away sometime during childbirth and after doctors attempted for nearly more than an hour to revive Sha-Asia, Juwan said they pronounced her dead.'
