National Daughter’s Day is celebrated every year on Sept. 25, and is meant to be a day where daughters are made to feel special. Several celebrities, including Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burruss, Eva Marcille and Porsha Williams took to social media to express their love for their daughters
Porsha Williams, who welcomed daughter Pilar Jhena McKinley, in 2019, shared a video and a couple of pictures of her baby girl. She captioned, “I love you my darling PJ @pilarjhena !!! #NationalDaughterDay.”
Porsha became pregnant with Pilar six years after having a miscarriage.
“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy,” she told People.com. “So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”
Porsha and her fiancé, Dennis Mckinley, welcomed their daughter a week before her due date. Their miracle baby is now a healthy and thriving toddler.
Kandi Burruss also took to Instagram to share photos of her daughters Blaze and Riley, and her bonus daughter Kaela. She captioned, “So I heard it was #NationalDaughterDay! I love my girls @blazetucker #RileyBurruss @kpt__“
Blaze was born via surrogate to Kandi and husband Todd Tucker on November 22,2019. Due to medical reasons and a history of delivery complications, Burruss decided surrogacy was the safest option to carry her and Todd’s second child together.
Eva Marcille, who has one daughter with her ex Kevin MCCall, posted an adorable photo of her and her daughter. She wrote,“I must celebrate my young Queen Marley Rae Sterling on #nationaldaughtersday my whole world.”
Last year, Eva changed her daughter’s last name from McCall to Sterling. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star explained why she decided to give Marley her stepfather’s last name.
“I just went through a name change for my firstborn, Marley Rae,” Eva shared on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “Marley was born in 2014, and I gave her biological father’s [last] name [at birth],” The model explains. “After two months, we became estranged and I raised [Marley] as a single mom.”
“And then, the Good Lord saw fit for me to meet an amazing man, Michael Sterling, who has become my husband and the father of my later children. And so, long story short, we all have the name Sterling. Marley’s the only one with her biological father’s [last] name. I saw it necessary, and Mike saw it necessary, to change her name.”
