A new report reveals that before and since “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star gave birth to their first child, daughter Pilar Jhena, on March 22, he’s been doting on her round the clock.
“Dennis has been beyond supportive and helpful,” a source dished to HollywoodLife.com Monday, March 25. “He’s been there right by her side throughout the entire pregnancy and she doesn’t know what she’d do without him. Dennis has waited on Porsha hand and foot.”
The source also said that Williams, who told People magazine in September 2018 that her pregnancy came as a surprise, “always knew she wanted to become a mom one day and she feels incredibly blessed with a beautiful, healthy daughter and an amazing fiancé.”
“She can’t wait to marry him and make their family official. Porsha has so much to look forward to and she feels like the best is just beginning,” the insider added.
McKinley popped the question to Williams after the pair learned last summer that they were going to become parents. Williams finally came clean about her pregnancy that September, and when March rolled around baby PJ was finally ready to enter the world.
By Sunday, March 24, it appeared the couple was readying to take their new bundle of joy home, according to a sneak peek of PJ on dad’s Instagram Story. On Wednesday, McKinley shared an image of a swaddled Pilar getting some rest as she remained cozy at home with her parents. It was a little more than fans got when Pilar was first born as McKinley thanked the public “for all of your well wishes.”
While the insider noted that Williams was anxious about the birth process, which was reportedly facilitated through a scheduled cesarean section, they said, “she was so excited to meet that baby.”
Additionally, the source said pregnancy has been good for Williams, who was once known for letting her emotions get the best of her and lashing out at co-stars who provoked her, as Kenya Moore famously did during the season 6 “RHOA” reunion.
“Pregnancy changed Porsha so much. Friends felt she was a lot less dramatic and so much calmer. Porsha is so excited she officially became a mom,” the insider revealed.
