If we know anything about Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, it's that she's a planner. From her over-the-top parties to her donkey booty business, she has it all under control. When it came to the recent birth of her second son, however, she says it didn't go as planned at all.
Though he was born May 8, Phaedra is just now discussing his birth and introducing him to the world. She recently told Us Weekly about his very unexpected birth -- three weeks before his due date.
She said she was on a work trip in Augusta about 150 miles from home when she went into labor:
I hadn't packed anything or even made arrangements for Ayden. And I'm usually an Eagle Scout when it comes to being prepared!
Eight hours later she gave birth to her 7-pound, 9-ounce son via an emergency C-section. Fortunately Mom and baby were both fine, but it just goes to show that no matter how well prepared we think we are, birth can throw a wrench in anyone's plans.
Judging from the pictures in Us Weekly, he's ridiculously adorable and looks a lot like his big brother Ayden. As for his name, they're still waiting to officially bestow it upon him in a traditional African naming ceremony, but she revealed that it's Dylan, which is adorable. It's unique without being too far out there, and it goes well with Ayden.
She says she's adjusting to life with two children just fine and is trying to soak it all up.
Right now, we're just enjoying every moment, because once the baby grows up, I can't put him in a time machine!
Unfortunately none of us can, so enjoying it is the best we can do. Congratulations to them all!
