In a poignant video shot by her longtime friend Shamea Morton, the ‘RHOA’ star handed fiancé Simon Guobadia an engagement ring from Tiffany & Co.
Porsha Williams, 40, accepted a proposal from her boyfriend, Simon Guobadia, on May 10. So, despite wearing a big, emerald-cut ring on her finger, the Real Housewives of Atlanta actress has been in post-engagement bliss for the past few months.
Porsha decided it was time to repay the favor to her fiancé on Monday (Sept. 27), so she bought him an engagement ring from Tiffany & Co. and gave it to him. Shamea Morton, Porsha’s lifelong friend, captured the touching moment on camera, and it was heartbreaking to say the least.
Porsha was in tears as soon as her proposal was accepted in the video. Shamea could be heard exclaiming in the video, “This is some really great stuff,” as she recorded Porsha and Simon enthusiastically embracing. Both the engaged couple and Shamea were crying, and Shamea continued to contribute to the romantic scene with her hilarious remarks. “Aww, this is love, guys. She said, “L-O-V-E, love.”
Porsha and Simon exchanged hugs before Porsha requested Simon to show her his new jewelry. Simon then displayed his ring at Porsha, prompting the couple to kiss once more while Shamea screamed excitedly in the background. Porsha and Shamea started singing and joking about, as Simon flaunted his ring in front of Shamea’s camera before snapping a few photos of the romantic gift with his own phone.
“Crazy IN LOVE PART / 2 Taken 4 real,” Porsha captioned the post-proposal video. I said yes, and he said yes, too!!! Yes, we’re both proclaiming our love, and every time we look down at our left hand, we’re reminded that this is a lifetime vow and love!! We’ll be husband and wife, and I’m so excited! Pooh, I adore you!”
Porsha and Simon’s first proposal took place on May 10, and it was Simon who asked the momentous question to his love. Porsha’s relationship with Simon had a difficult start, with viewers speculating that she was involved in his divorce from ex-wife and RHOA newcomer Falynn Guobadia.
During an interview with Adam Newell on June 11, Falynn promptly debunked any allegations of bad blood. “No one has that influence over my life, my husband’s life, or our marriage,” she stated emphatically.
Porsha has been busy organizing a wedding since she got engaged. Or, to be more precise, three weddings! Porsha announced in an interview with Dish Nation on May 26 that she and her soon-to-be spouse intend to say “I do” three times, in order to honor Simon’s cultural traditions.
“Because [Simon] is African, we’ll have our local law and custom ceremony as well as a traditional wedding, and then we’ll have another wedding in one of the out-of-country houses,” she explained.
Porsha will be married for the second time. From 2011 until 2013, she was married to ex-NFL star Kordell Stewart. Porsha previously married Dennis McKinley, with whom she had a two-year-old daughter, Pilar.
