A new castmember is joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta! Phaedra Parks gave birth to a baby boy weighing 7 pounds, 9 ounces on Wednesday. "Mom and baby are happy and healthy," her rep told Us Weekly. And this new addition can only mean one thing for the future of the show.
More drama. Good thing she is used to plenty of screams and tears thanks to castmates Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, and Cynthia Bailey. Already mom to two-year-old Ayden, life is about to get 100 times more hectic for the reality TV star. I hope this doesn't inspire her to pull a Kim and skip out on filming. After Kim got pregnant with her second child with Kroy Biermann, she all but disappeared from the show, saying she didn't have as much time to hang with the other ladies anymore.
But if anyone can balance it all, it's Phaedra. This is something she's wanted for a long time. In fact, she and husband Apollo Nida probably aren't stopping at two. "Ideally I'd like three kids, but I don't know if my poor uterus can take it!" she once joked.
Like Ayden, I have no doubt that the new baby will be featured on the Bravo hit as well. Phaedra, a self-described Southern Belle, who joined the show in it's third season has quickly become a fan favorite. She may not be as outwardly feisty as NeNe or Kim, but she gives as good as she gets. Her most memorable feud: the Donkey video battle with newbie Kenya. She's also perhaps the savviest business woman out of the crew, balancing a mortician biz with her law practice. And word is, she has landed her own spin-off called Rich People Problems, which is about her law clients. Though, I am sure all of that pales in comparison to being a mom. Congrats Phaedra!
Do you think being a mom of two will keep Phaedra too busy to be on the show?
