It seems Phaedra Parks‘ eldest son Ayden Nida takes after his mother in the looks department.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” former cast member dedicated a sweet post to her sons Ayden, nine, and Dylan, six, after the hashtag “girldad” started trending on social media. The trend is is inspired by the relationship between NBA star Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant. It began following the recent tragic deaths of Bryant and his daughter, along with seven others, in a helicopter crash.
After witnessing several “girldad” posts, Parks decided to come up with her own hashtag “boymom” and posted a throwback photo of herself and her son Ayden in her post.
“After seeing all the #girldad posts I had to represent for all the #boy#moms who become honorary #cub #scouts, handle bugs and learn to enjoy activities they never thought about in their wildest dreams to bond with their young #kings!” Parks wrote, adding the hashtags “tbt,” “momlife,” “prince” and “president.”
Several fans cheered on Parks’ hashtag “boymom,” while others mentioned her and Ayden’s resemblance.
“Lady Parks, and Ayden I love this picture ❤️ Love it!!!!💪 he is your twin @phaedraparks”
“awww look at the twins #reallove to one of the hardest working moms I know 💕”
“Where is mr President 😭😭😭? You lookthe prince Ayden here 🤭”
“He getting so big. Congrats Prince Ayden💯 He’s so handsome ur twin. “
Parks shares her two sons Ayden and Dylan with ex-husband Apollo Nida, also formerly of “RHOA.”
Although the former couple divorced in 2017, Apollo is still involved in his children’s lives. He celebrated Christmas with his children and even posted pics of his kids opening their gifts while all three of them were at a restaurant.
“I love these two amazingly smart young men,” the father of two wrote via Instagram on Jan 12. “Life is only going to get better for US. THANKS FOR REMAINING STRONG WHILE DADDY WAS AWAY. LOVE YOU SO MUCH.”
He then added in a second post, “The positive energy you two have is so awesome. Love you.”
Apollo was sentenced to prison for fraud and identity theft in 2014, but was released last year in 2019. His prison sentence apparently led to his and Parks’ divorce.
