Porsha Williams Speaks On Her Post-Baby Body
Porsha Williams hasn’t dropped all of her baby weight since giving birth to baby Pilar Jhena—and she’s completely fine with that.
As previously reported Porsha and her fiance Dennis McKinley welcomed their daughter on March 22 and they couldn’t be happier.
Porsha’s now highlighting her pregnancy and being a new mom on Bravo’s “Porsha’s Having A Baby” special and she recently spoke with PEOPLE about the show and new mommyhood. According to Porsha, she’s completely comfortable with her postpartum baaaawdy and she purposely wears fitting clothing to show it off.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star also says she’ll bounce back naturally and “in her own time.”
“I’ve done the opposite of what people do when they get shamed online. They hide because you shame them,” Williams says. “I actually post pictures with fitting clothes, still showing my postpartum body. I’m proud of it. I’m going to bounce back naturally, and I’m not going to stress myself.”
“I think for anyone who just gave birth and is trying to get used to her brand-new body, it’s difficult, right?” she adds. “And you wouldn’t want anybody to add to how stressful [new parenthood is] and how you mentally think about yourself. You don’t want them to add to the stress of that.”
How refreshing is that? In Hollywood, it’s common to see ladies with six-pack abs just WEEKS after giving birth. And while that’s no knock to them, that’s just not realistic for a number of people.
Here’s how Porsha currently looks;
Porsha also told PEOPLE that she had difficulty recovering from her C-section and she kept it honest about going through that major surgery.
“A lot of people think that C-sections are easy — an easier way to give birth. But I assure you, it is full, serious surgery. It was difficult!”
“Even recovery — healing from the cut and taking care of a newborn while being on pain medication and dealing with your body’s shock of having just had a baby,” Williams adds. “I’m doing pretty good now, but it was just a lot.”
Kudos to Porsha, she makes motherhood despite it’s challenges look easy and baby Pilar Jhena (whose face we still haven’t seen) is precious.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha’s Having a Baby airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.

In a separate interview, Porsha revealed that she’s actually not breastfeeding Pilar Jhena.
According to Porsha, breastfeeding just didn’t work out for her.
“I’m not breastfeeding,” Porsha revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife. “It didn’t work out for me. I really did try, but I just wasn’t producing enough milk so it just didn’t work out for me. We [Fiancé Dennis McKinley, 38, and Porsha] don’t get any sleep but we love it! We’re delirious but it’s great! I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”
She also added that being a new mom has taught her patience and her boo Dennis McKinley has applauded her for it.
“He’s like, the patience that you have now is incredible. You have to be so patient to be a mom. You are on that baby’s schedule and everything takes time, love and patience so I feel like overall in all of our relationships, I’ve probably become more patient.”
Good for you Porsha.
