Porsha Williams is on the mend.
After NeNe Leakes asked fans for "prayers and good vibes" for the pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who was admitted to the hospital on Sunday (November 4), a source told People Porsha and her baby are doing just fine. “She is suffering some pregnancy complications due to large fibroids," said the insider. "She was admitted to the hospital and will be staying a little longer than expected. Heartbeat and baby are strong.” Adding, “She has to get to full term so prayers are being asked for."
NeNe gave an update on Porsha's condition on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen later in the day, telling the host, "She’s okay. She’s going to be fine. She does have to stay overnight. Hopefully, she’ll be released tomorrow [Monday, November 5]. She’s been in a little pain.”
As fans know, the reality star announced that she's expecting her first child with her fiance Dennis McKinley in September. "❤️I am happy, healthy... and pregnant," she wrote on Instagram.
She also opened up to People about her reaction when she found out she was pregnant, explaining that she had mix emotions initially because she suffered from a miscarriage six years ago and has dealt with other health issues over the years. "When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear,” she said. "I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy. So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.” She continued, “Going into the first appointment and being able to see baby and hear baby and know that baby is fine, then I can wrap my mind around actually becoming a mommy."
