Phaedra Parks Baby Sex Revealed, Along With Pregnancy Complications

It's a boy for "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks!

The lawyer-turned-reality-star and her husband, Apollo Nida, will welcome their second son at the end of May, In Touch magazine reports. And while their 2-year-old son, Ayden, may not be thrilled -- "He keeps saying, 'I want a sister,'" Parks previously told HuffPost Live -- she says she and Apollo are.

Parks admits to knowing what to expect having another boy, but this pregnancy hasn’t been as easy on her.

“Doctors have diagnosed me with placenta previa, which means I need to be careful this time around because I can’t have a vaginal birth,” Parks revealed.

According to the National Institutes of Health, placenta previa occurs when the placenta grows in the lowest part of the womb (uterus) and covers all or part of the opening to the cervix. It occurs in 1 out of 200 pregnancies and is usually treated by reducing activity, bed rest and pelvic rest, meaning no sex, tampons or douching.

Parks told The Huffington Post last month that she planned to create a follow-up to her infamous "Phine Body" (aka "Donkey Booty") workout DVD geared specifically toward expectant moms. Given her current condition, however, it sounds like those plans may have to wait.

If she hasn't done so already, there could be a future opportunity to shoot the DVD though. "I would entertain a third child," Parks told In Touch. "But I would have to guarantee that it was a little girl."
