The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is about to get a little bigger. Shamea Morton, a regular guest star on the Bravo reality series, and husband Gerald Mwangi are expecting their first child together.
Fittingly enough, Shamea shared the big news on Mother’s Day May 13, which coincided with her 36th birthday party. Atlanta Housewives Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Sheree Whitfield were all at the event to celebrate.
In an interview with Us Weekly, Shamea revealed, “I am due around Thanksgiving.” She gave a big speech at the party to break the news. She shared, “God has blessed me so much. I’ve got a great husband that I love so much. I’ve got awesome, awesome friends and family.”
Shamea continued, “The only thing I can ask if for a healthy baby.” Us Weekly reports that Shamea and her husband each held up signs to announce the pregnancy. Hers said “Sh*t just real” and his had “drawings of sperm” with the words “one made it.”
Before Shamea and her husband confirmed the pregnancy via those creative signs, Porsha actually suspected that they had a baby on the way.
Shamea shared, “No one knew except my husband and my sister.” She also revealed “Porsha was trying to give me Hennessy, I was telling her I was waiting for my birthday to drink. She knew I was lying, she was like, ‘B*tch you are pregnant.’”
Shamea and Gerald will reveal the sex of their baby on their anniversary. Neither know whether they are having a boy or a girl. “I never thought I was one of those people who would say I don’t care what sex, I just want a healthy baby, but now I really don’t care.
We just want a healthy baby,” she revealed to Us. “I want two kids and my husband wants five. I joke with him and tell him you are going to do a lot of love making to have five.”

The TV personality and Gerald tied the knot in Nairobi, Kenya, in July 2017. Though Porsha skipped the affair, Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, made the 19-hour trip. Tameka “Tiny” Cottle was also in attendance.
Shamea and Gerald dated for more than three years before saying “I do.”
