Phaedra Parks Reveals Sex of Second Child + Talks Pregnancy Complications


Phaedra Parks and Apollo are expecting another baby boy!

While Phaedra is due in May, she revealed that this pregnancy is a bit more complicated.

“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth,” Parks revealed.

According to the National Institutes of Health, placenta previa occurs when the placenta grows in the lowest part of the womb (uterus) and covers all or part of the opening to the cervix. It occurs in 1 out of 200 pregnancies and is usually treated by reducing activity, bed rest and pelvic rest, meaning no sex, tampons or douching.

Parks told The Huffington Post last month that she planned to create a follow-up to her infamous “Phine Body” (aka “Donkey Booty”) workout DVD geared specifically toward expectant moms. Given her current condition, however, it sounds like those plans may have to wait.

If she hasn’t done so already, there could be a future opportunity to shoot the DVD. “I would entertain a third child,” Parks told In Touch. “But I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl.”
