Phaedra Parks was deeply moved to tears by her son Ayden Nida at his 13th birthday party, which unfolded on a recent episode of “Married To Medicine.

In the touching moment captured on the reality show, the teenager delivered a heartfelt speech expressing gratitude to his mom.


Ayden’s sweet tribute began with him saying, “There is no way I would ever be able to repay you for all that you do for us. Your love is so overwhelming sometimes, and it’s just…,” he trailed off, admitting his nervousness.

Undeterred, he continued, “But i have learned that that’s just you. One time i was getting stiches, you were crying more than i Was. I just want you to know i love you and you are my work.”

In response to Ayden’s heartfelt words, Phaedra said, “I am so proud to be his mom. Money can’t buy everything and so good parenting is a lot about time. Not just money. I just want them to know how much when i am with them, it matters.

The birthday bash, a carnival-themed extravaganza, cost a whopping $70,000 and took place in the backyard of Phaedra’s Buckhead Atlanta home on May 26, 2023. Ayden’s love for carnivals was brought to life with games, basketball, dancing, fire handlers, stilt walkers, and more. Celebrity party planner Tori Williams transformed Phaedra’s vision into reality, creating a memorable event for 120 guests.

Reflecting on the elaborate celebration, Phaedra described it as almost a “royal coronation,” making Ayden’s 13th birthday an unforgettable and impactful milestone in his life.

“He loves carnivals, so we had an actual Carnival company come and do the Carnival games,” she told The Messenger. “You could win gifts and toys, but then the kids also played basketball — we have a half court on my property — and they danced, and it was just a fun time. Then, the fire handler came and spewed fire, and then the stilt walkers gave us a great show. So I think it was entertaining to all.”

But the surprises didn’t end there. Phaedra went all out, gifting Ayden a staggering $150,000. “I gave him a piece of investment property, because he loves investments and money,” Parks revealed. “He wanted a dirt bike, [but I thought], ‘Let me get you something that you won’t kill yourself [on]. Let me get you something that’s going to be useful.'”
