RHONY Alum Eboni K. Williams Announces 1st Pregnancy At 40



Real Housewives news.

Former “Real Housewives of New York City” star Eboni K. Williams is about to be a first-time mama.

The Bravo alum shared the big news on Instagram just two months before her due date. In photos posted to her page, Williams posed wearing a form-fitting white dress that hugged her baby bump. In another photo, she showed her bare bump, and a final pic had her dressed in a sheer white dress as she cradled her belly.

“Thank you God…” Williams captioned the photos. “Abundantly blessed and so excited to welcome my daughter to this world 🙏🏾💕.”

Williams, 40, used a sperm donor to become pregnant via in vitro fertilization (IVF), according to People magazine. She is due with her daughter in August, the outlet reported.

Williams was the first Black cast member on RHONY. In 2021, she appeared in season 13, the franchise’s final season before a major cast reboot took place.

Eboni K. Williams Was Vocal About Her Pregnancy Journey

Williams had been vocal about her pregnancy journey and single motherhood. In an interview with Access Hollywood in January 2023, she teased, “I don’t want to jinx myself with sharing too many details, but I’m deep into my process,” she shared at the time. “I have embryos, and I’m looking to transfer later this year.”

“So I’m in it for real. Hopefully, God willing, baby coming soon,” she added.

During a February 2023 appearance on “The View“,  she talked about her search for a sperm donor and noted that she paid extra to have a “known donor.”  “At 18 my future child, God willing, will be able to know the name, identity, and last known location of their father,” she said on the ABC talk show.

The divorced attorney turned reality star also shared her plans in a 2023 interview on the “Surface Level Podcast”. “I have an embryo transfer scheduled for this fall,” she said in September.

Williams told People she started the pregnancy process six years ago. She called her baby girl a “remarkable miracle.”

“I did one egg retrieval at 34 years old, not really having a clear intention on if I would use those eggs or when I would use the eggs,” Williams told the magazine. “And six years later, that one egg retrieval led to one genetically normal embryo which led to one successful embryo transfer and — one pregnancy later — I’ll soon have, God willing, one beautifully healthy baby girl. So, it really does feel like fate.”

Several Bravo stars showered Williams with congratulatory messages following her pregnancy announcement.

“SOOOOO HAPPY FOR YOU MY LOVE ,” 😍,” wrote “Real Housewives of Miami” star Guerdy Abraira.

“Omg!!!!! Congrats sweet heart!!!!!!” wrote “Southern Hospitality” star Leva Bonaparte.

“Congratulations!!! Beautiful photos🙏🏽💕,” added “Shahs of Sunset” alum Reza Farahan.

“Congratulations my love!!!!!” wrote former ”Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Crystal Kung Minkoff.

“Awwww yay!! Congrats gorgeous 💙,” added  “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jackie Goldschneider.

As of this writing, none of Williams’ former RHONY co-stars have commented on her pregnancy post. Her co-stars included Sonja Morgan, Leah McSweeney, Ramona Singer, and Luann de Lesseps.

Fans may recall that Williams never got closure with her castmates following a volatile season 13. Taping for the “RHONY” reunion was officially canceled in September 2021 and a reboot of the show followed.

During an appearance on the “Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef” podcast, Williams said she was disappointed by the reunion cancelation. “I’ve expressed that to all parties involved,” she said. “I think many people, at minimum, had unanswered questions around this season. And I think [a reunion] would have done a lot of good by way of being able to open up the opportunity to have exchange and dialogue. I think it’s a missed opportunity.”
