"The day was magical," Williams tells People of the winter wonderland-themed bash. "It was amazing to walk into a room and feel that much love. I have such a tremendous support system around me and women who lift me up and are just so incredibly happy for me."
Baby shower attendees wore white to the event, which featured stunning flowers from Akeem Clayton, as well as ice sculptures. "Celebrating PJ," was written on the floor of the shower, a special shout-out to the baby on the way.
Williams announced her pregnancy back in September and fans also got to watch her share the happy news with her co-stars on an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The reality star broke the news during a girls' getaway to Tokyo for Eva Marcille's bachelorette party.
Since then, Williams has continued to keep her fans updated on her pregnancy journey. For instance, she revealed the sex of her child in October. The mother-to-be is expecting a baby girl, whom she's lovingly been calling "PJ."
"PJ is Porsha Jr. My fiancé wants to name her Porsha Jr. and I kind of like it," she previously told E! News. "But I have two other names that start with a 'P' that I'm considering, too. So, we don't know yet."
Williams' road to motherhood hasn't been the easiest. In 2012, she opened up about her miscarriage via a blog post for Bravo.
"I was really devastated following the loss of my first pregnancy, not just a physical pain, but an aching sense of loss and loneliness like my body had let me down," she wrote. "Feeling sorry for myself, I did my research and discovered the U.S. National Institute of Health reveals at least 25 percent of women suffer from uterine fibroids. As many as 77 percent of women may not even know they have them, because there are no symptoms, which is why I had no clue. I will faithfully continue to stay prayerful that I will become a mother for the second time."
Becoming a mother isn't the only major milestone Williams has in her future. She's also set to tie the knot. McKinley popped the question with a $750,000 diamond ring back in October.
Congratulations to the happy family!
