Phaedra Parks and her sons, Dylan and Ayden, were dressed and more than ready to support Black Panther this week. The celebrity mom and her kids rocked wear that paid homage to the Black Panther Party all while showing support for the film.
Phaedra showed major love to the movie’s director, Ryan Coogler, who also did a bit of screenwriting for Fruitvale Station and Creed. As the caption of one of Phaedra’s pictures reads, “Coogler’s budget for #blackpanther was $200 million (the most ever given to an African American director). During the movies premiere weekend, it made over $387 million worldwide!” Pretty impressive!

Parks has also been doing big things since her stint on Real Housewives of Atlanta came to an end. Fans saw pictures of the fit and fabulous Phaedra just weeks before the former housewife announced her signing with Wilhelmina Models.
“I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams,” Phaedra said during an interview in November. “Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me ‘Why?’ and I said, ‘Why not?'”
“A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color, and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”
Phaedra Parks is the proud mother of two sons. Both Dylan and Ayden celebrate their birthdays in May.
