Other mothers told me, ‘Oh yeah! In the beginning, the newborn is so sweet and you’re gonna love it’ … For me, it definitely took me a while to get used to. But I got past it … But being a mother period, knowing this little girl is going to love me and I have her forever has been the biggest blessing.

Porsha Williams’ Ex-Husband Kordell Stewart
When Williams first appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was married to her ex-husband, athlete Kordell Stewart, and she was trying to juggle life as a wife and future mother. Ultimately, the couple’s relationship did not work out, as they appeared to have different life goals. The two were married from 2011 – 2013 and Williams told Bravo that she found out about her split on social media.
In 2016, Stewart appeared on The Steve Harvey Show and opened up about his divorce. He also threw some shade at his ex, telling Harvey, “You know, what I’ve seen of my ex as of lately, conducting herself, just imagine if we were together for five more years with two children. That wouldn’t have been good. Even though that was a rocky road, that was a lesson for me in this life. I want a woman, Steve. I don’t want a child that’s trying to play the role of a woman.” He continued, “When it comes to the institution of marriage, I think it is the highest levels in the Super Bowl of a relationship. And you have that someone that you say, you know what, ‘I want to be with you for the rest of my life’ – you know, breath stink and all, I want to just be with you forever. That breath I was smelling, was the one I wanted to be with for the rest of my life but it got to the point where it started to get a little too stinky.”
Williams was shown dating a man named Todd Stewart and she would sometimes talk about possibly having kids with Stewart. She started dating Stewart a couple years after her divorce and she told The Daily Dish that, “It’s hard to say [what lessons I learned] because what I really loved about marriage was that union. I loved knowing that I belonged to someone. … And I think that will probably be what will force me to get married again ’cause that fulfillment means a lot to me, family means a lot to me. So you know [boyfriend] Todd [Stewart] is trying to teach me not to give up on that.” Stewart was an ex-boyfriend, who she later reconnected with.
Porsha Williams was dating an athlete named Duke Williams in 2015 but, on an episode of RHOA, it didn’t appear to be going well.
