Who Is Dennis McKinley? New Details On Porsha Williams' Fiancé And Baby Daddy Instagram

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is engaged! The news comes just weeks after the reality star announced she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley. 

The happy news follows years of ups and downs for the RHOA star, 37, who suffered a miscarriage in 2012 followed by a messy public divorce the following year. 

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited, but I had mixed feelings,” Williams told People when she announced her pregnancy last month. "Just the fear of ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before,” she said. 


In spite of her concerns, the RHOA star calls the pregnancy "a dream come true." With her recent engagement, it seems like even more dreams are about to come true for the mother-to-be and her new fiancé. But who is Dennis McKinley? Here's everything you need to know about the husband and father-to-be!

1. He's an entrepreneur 

McKinley is a businessman and entrepreneur, though the details of his professional life remain unclear. His private Instagram account, @workwincelebrate, refers to him as a "serial entrepreneur" with business in Detroit and Atlanta.

2. Williams kept their relationship private for months 

The couple went public with the relationship back in June, but told Dish Nation they'd been dating for months before they even followed each other on social media. 

3. We'll be seeing much more of McKinley 

He'll be appearing on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and their engagement was even filmed for the show, so we can expect to see the magic moment when season 11 premieres in November. 

4. He's got a sensitive side 

“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me,” Williams told People when she confirmed her pregnancy last month. Williams also revealed that the father-to-be found out about the happy news on his birthday back in July.

5. He's 38 

Speaking of birthdays, McKinley celebrated his 38th on July 25, a little over a month after his girl turned 37 back in June. Williams celebrated her baby daddy's big day with a heartfelt Instagram post. "Screaming happy birthday to my love. Let's make it last forever," read the caption. 

6. He's expecting his first child

The baby on the way will be the first for both Williams and McKinley. Although the baby news came as a surprise, Williams told People it has brought the couple even closer together.

7. And rumor has it it's a girl!

Williams sent rumors swirling last month when she left a telling comment on beauty mogul Ming Lee's Instagram post. "Omg I wish my baby was out !! I would have her right there getting done up lol," the comment read. While Williams hasn't confirmed the rumors, fans speculate she and McKinley are expecting a girl!

8. Their split 

The couple split in June following cheating rumors, despite Prosha giving birth to their daughter, Pilar, in March 2019. Today, the couple is 're-engaged' and attempting to work things through, according to a recent US Weekly interview. “We're happy and we're raising our daughter together.” Williams said. “It’s been a long road, one we’re still on. We’re going day by day rebuilding our relationship and making sure our foundation is where we want it to be to have a strong family.”
