Back in December, we told you that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Phaedra Parks and hubby Apollo Nilda were expecting their second child. Since the exciting announcement, Phaedra has shared that she would love for the soon-arriving addition to the family to be a girl, as she and Apollo already have a two-year-old son together. Although the Nilda family may have wished for a girl, the mom-to-be made it very clear that regardless of the sex of the child, all they really wanted was a happy and healthy baby. Now that Phaedra has learned the sex of her child, she opened up to In Touch regarding some rather intimate details surrounding her pregnancy.
“I’m having another little boy!” she squealed to In Touch about the sex of the baby she’s scheduled to give birth to in May. Although she previously revealed that her two-year-old son Ayden was hoping for a little sister, she says he’s equally excited about having a little brother as well.
“He’s such a great helper. He’ll be a wonderful big brother because he likes to help and he’s so smart,” Parks expressed.
The 40-year-old mom-to-be also revealed that she experienced a few complications during this pregnancy, which could be why she was so secretive about sharing how far along she was in her pregnancy initially.
“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth,” said the reality star.
Phaedra also expressed that while she would entertain having another child if she knew it would be a girl, she’s really just anticipating this one to get here.
“I would entertain a third child, but I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl. I think that would be plenty after that. I’m just super excited for this baby to get here!”
