Congrats to Peter Thomas of The Real Housewives of Atlanta who is a now grandpa – double time!

His daughter Porsche Thomas and her husband, motivational speaker Till H. Groß, welcomed twin boys on January 7. Porsche posted an adorable photo of dynamic duo, August and Berlin.

Peter’s ex, Cynthia Bailey, posted her congrats along with a picture of the nursery – which would make even Jeff Lewis envious of its sophisticated design.

Unfortunately, a week before the babies’ arrival, Porsche reportedly felt bullied by her followers after posting a pic proudly displaying her baby bump. But many of her followers also defended her choice to post this pic and told Porsche to ignore the haters. Here’s the photo that started the controversy.

Porsche clapped back with another photo of her baby bump, letting the haters know she is busy “enjoying life.” “While some of y’all been in my comments criticizing the blackness that is my belly and me during what shoulda been your holiday cheer, I been over here enjoying life, growing tiny humans, performing miracles and hopefully getting even blacker ????????#justsaying#melaninpoppin #twins #babybump#noairbrushneeded #love and be #loved.”

Porsche also addressed the online criticism in an interview with BET

“I guess I would ask [the haters], ‘How does it benefit you to make somebody feel bad about themselves?’ That’s something I really want people to think about,” Porsche said. “What purpose does it serve to share a negative thought with a person you don’t know and, on top of that, to be a pregnant woman? What do they gain from it?”

So where does Porsche get her confidence from? She credits her mother and father.

“Growing up, my father constantly told me I was beautiful. My mother, as a single black mother, I just watched her be a strong black woman. She didn’t complain. We had everything we needed. I watched my mom as a black woman who was single do her thing and that gave me confidence,” she said. “I grew up with a very strong black woman in my life.”

Congrats to the entire family on their bundles of joy.
