Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida, are expecting a new baby. The couple, who already have a two-year-old son named Ayden, are expecting in May.
And it looks like Ayden will have a little brother to play with. In an interview with In Touch Weekly, Phaedra shared:
“I will be having another little boy! I’m just super excited for this baby to get here!”
While the reality star is thrilled about bambino number two, she sorta-kinda wanted a little girl.
“I would entertain a third child, but I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl. I think that would be plenty after that.”
Phaedra also shared that she’ll be having a C-section this go ’round.
“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth.”
And in other news, Love & Hip Hop’s Yandy Smith has spoken out for the first time, about the public trial involving her fiance/baby-daddy Mendeecees Harris.
In a lengthy letter posted on Everything Girls Love, the NYC native explains that she is still sympathetic about the young woman that accused Mendeecees and continues to focus on her faith in God. Peep a few excerpts below.
To My Supporters,
The past few weeks have been some of the hardest days, hours, and minutes of my life. I found myself torn between a man that I know and love, and an accusation that makes me sick to my stomach. I hoped and prayed that someone I loved so dearly could not be guilty of such a disgusting and shameful act… I hoped, but I did NOT assume.
I chose to stay silent until I was able to hear both sides and form my own opinion. I went to court every single day; I listened intently to the case from both sides ready to face whatever truth was revealed.
In the end, the truth is Mendeecees Harris may be many things, but he is NOT guilty of the heinous accusations made against him. I won’t get into much detail because at the other side of this is a young woman that regardless of the outcome, remains broken. I pray that she is able to move past this and realize her full potential and I pray that the world is able to accept that in this case justice was served.
As a woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and a human being, it breaks my heart when I hear of crimes committed against children. There is nothing worse than offenses against those whose lives are so precious and who look to us to guide them and help them understand the world. Children that are abused are robbed of their innocence, their childhoods, and their self-esteem. They’re robbed of their optimism and dreams and forced to see the evils of the world before they can see the beauty.
What do you think of Yandy’s letter? And do you feel like the media were overly negative about Mendeecees’ trial?
