“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams is a mom for the first time!
On Friday, Porsha gave birth to a baby girl, who she named PJ.
In a statement to People, Williams and fiancé Dennis McKinley said, "What a time to be alive! 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."
Hours before the baby's arrival, Dennis posted on Instagram, "It’s going down! BASEMENT #MEETtheMcKinleys #BabyPJ #MILFSeason #Grateful ❤️."
Porsha's Lauren also shared a photo at the hospital, saying, “Waiting for my baby to have a baby… Her motherly instincts have always been there. She’s my child and my mother 🤣 if you know us, you know what I mean. So I’m ecstatic to welcome my niece, granddaughter, second daughter, and sister PJ to the world today. Pray for us🙏🏽.”

Waiting for my baby to have a baby. I didn’t get to give my speech at the baby shower so I’ll give it here. When daddy died, I was 10 and she was 16. We were at the hospital in North Carolina (Duke) and the doctors had notified everyone that he probably wouldn’t make it through the night so the family gathered at the hospital to say their goodbyes. I knew why everyone was there but for some reason I still hadn’t accepted it. That night I slept in Porsha’s lap in a private waiting room. The next morning we woke up and flew home. The morning of the funeral I sat on the front row directly in front of the casket. Probably not the best idea for a 10 year old in hindsight because they left the casket open for the majority of the service. So I laid on my Aunt Jettie’s lap and went to sleep. I slept until the end of the funeral when my mom was responsible for kissing cheeks and shaking hands with guests. Porsha immediately got grabbed me and walked me out of the funeral. She knew it was all too much for me. Her motherly instincts have always been there. She’s my child and my mother 🤣 if you know us, you know what I mean. So I’m ecstatic to welcome my niece, granddaughter, second daughter, and sister PJ to the world today. Pray for us🙏🏽
During her pregnancy, Porsha was hospitalized after suffering complications “due to large fibroids.” A source told People magazine in November, “She was admitted to the hospital and will be staying a little longer than expected. Heartbeat and baby are strong.”
The 37-year-old announced she was expecting in September. She suffered a miscarriage six years before. She told People, “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.”
