Williams, 37, revealed to PEOPLE in September that she and her boyfriend (now fiancé) Dennis McKinley were expecting their first child together, revealing late last month that the baby on the way would be a girl. Her hospital stay wasn’t the first bump in the road on her way to motherhood. As she explained to PEOPLE of the journey, during which she suffered a miscarriage six years ago, “When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear.” “I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy,” continued the mom-to-be. “So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.” RELATED VIDEO: ‘RHOA’ Star Porsha Williams Gives Her Side of the Story Regarding the Kandi vs. Phaedra Feud! In her September interview with PEOPLE, Williams explained that the baby news, which was a surprise for the couple, has only strengthened their bond. “The pregnancy came from the left, but it definitely has brought us closer together because you realize when it sets in that you are actually bringing a life to this world, that you have become family overnight,” revealed the co-host of Dish Nation. “So now a lot of the things that we had talked about are a reality, and we work really hard at wanting to be a good couple and build a strong foundation for our new family that we’re going to have,” Williams said.
