The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 37, sent fans into a frenzy when she left a possibly telling comment on beauty influencer Ming Lee’s Instagram post on Friday, September 21. In response to a photo of four babies adorably napping under salon hair dryers, the mom-to-be wrote, “Omg I wish my baby was out !! I would have her right there getting done up lol.”
Many Instagram users asked Williams whether her comment meant that she has a little girl on board, but she did not respond.
Us Weekly confirmed on Wednesday, September 19, that the Bravo personality is pregnant. Later that day, she wrote on Instagram, “I am happy, healthy… and pregnant! #BabyMckinley #DM #Blessed … Love you all thank you for your support and warm wishes it means the world to us!”
Despite her cryptic Instagram comment on Friday, Williams told Bravo’s The Daily Dish a day earlier that she predicts she is having a boy. “Today, the way the baby was jumping and doing, like, aerobics, probably in there doing … Crossfit, it’s probably a boy,” she said. “The baby was, like, super-duper active.”
The reality star made her romance with businessman McKinley, 38, official on Instagram in June after teasing on her Dish Nation radio show that she had a new guy in her life.
Williams was previously married to Kordell Stewart from 2011 to 2013. After finalizing her divorce from the former NFL player, she briefly rekindled her relationship with ex Todd Stewart before dating McKinley.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 11 is expected to premiere on Bravo later this year.
