Porsche Thomas, daughter of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas, gave birth to twins on Saturday but not before addressing the stream of criticism that she was subjected to after posting a picture of herself enjoying pregnancy.
“Getting down to the wire. Only about two weeks left for me and these boys before they make their debut,” Porsche shared along with a picture of her relaxing poolside. “Crazy excited and totally nervous,” Thomas wrote. “What a way to start #2017.”
While many celebrated with the excited model, some criticized Porsche’s skin tone. The new mom, of course, didn’t let the scrutiny go unnoticed.
“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,” Porsche shared along with another picture of her showing off her bump.

Porsche’s efforts produced beautiful fruits as her sons, August and Berlin, were born on January 7, 2017. “So grateful for this little family of mine,” she captioned underneath a photo of her and husband Till H. Gross’ little ones. “Meet August and Berlin, born 1/7/17 at 8:29 am and 8:31 am respectively. The loves of my life.” The twins made Porsche and Till parents for the first time.
