Sheesh, first, Jessica Simpson, then Kim Kardashian ... and now, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks confirmed she's pregnant to People exclusively. The reality star and her husband, Apollo Nida, say they're expecting their second child together in the spring, and the magazine debuted a pic of Phaedra flaunting her growing baby bump on the beach in the Bahamas, where she's vacationing with family and friends. Aww!
The Atlanta entertainment lawyer and hubby Apollo, a certified personal trainer, married in 2009 and had their son Ayden a year later. Phaedra's been known to be an incredibly doting (sometimes even over-the-top) mom to her 2-year-old, so we can be pretty sure that's gonna be the case for Baby #2, as well. The question is more so how will she fare with her husband, considering how we recently saw them laugh off divorce rumors?
Sure, any couple has their ups and downs, but from the looks of recent RHOA eps, Apollo and Phaedra have really been on rocky ground lately. Apollo has been constantly complaining about Phaedra, even going so far as to call her the "beast." Ugh! It could be all for the sake of reality TV ... but ick, how nasty.
And now, I wonder how this second baby on the way will affect their seemingly shaky marriage. Even if they -- or just Apollo -- were contemplating the idea of a split, will they stay together for the sake of their two kiddos? Or grit their teeth to try to make it work but end up throwing in the towel at some point down the road?
One thing's for sure: Ultimately, the children would be better off being around a happy mommy and daddy, so with hope, that divorce talk is all for show ... and they're truly excited to expand their family as a loving Mr. and Mrs.
What do you think about Phaedra's second pregnancy? Do you think a pregnancy should keep a couple together or not?
