Back in December we giddily reported that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks and hubby Apollo Nilda were expecting their second child. Phaedra, who is now in her second trimester, sat down with Huff Post Live to discuss her soon-coming bundle of joy and how her two-year-old son Ayden feels about becoming a big brother. Check out some of what she had to say.
On the sex of her baby:
“We don’t know [the sex of the baby] just yet, but we will find out…”
On how her son Ayden feels about being a big brother:
“He is so excited. He keeps saying ‘I want a sister.’”
“He actually has a cousin. My husband’s brother and his wife just had a little girl and so he thought that was his sister because he gets to see her often. So he’s like ‘sister, sister,’ and I’m like ‘What if it’s a boy?’ and he’s like ‘Noooo sister,’ and I’m like ‘Okay.’”
On wanting a daughter:
“Well, I just want a healthy baby. At first I was anti-little girls, and my husband was like ‘I’d like a daughter,’” she said. “But now I’m like, a girl might be fun. You know, once they get over the puberty and teenage years, you know me and my mom are best friends.”
On her least favorite part of pregnancy:
“Sometimes there’s a pressure on your body. Sometimes you’re tired. I mean, it’s a strain on your body. You know, you’ve got a extra basketball in front of you and of course, most people aren’t used to walking with the basketball in the front and I got a basketball in the back.”
Can you imagine how dressed up she’d have that mini southern belle?
We’re very happy for Phaedra and Apollo.
