Phaedra & Apollo: a Timeline of Their Love
Revisit some of the couple's best moments on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.'
Sad news out of the ATL: Phaedra Parks revealed on Friday that she's set to divorce her husband Apollo Nida, who is currently serving an 8-year prison sentence in Kentucky for fraud charges.
Over the years on Real Housewives of Atlanta, we've seen the couple weather their share of ups, downs—not to mention Textgate with Kenya Moore.
With the news that the couple are calling it quits, look back at some of the couple's best moments on the show.
During their first season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Apollo recalled the first time he met Phaedra: the couple had a meet-cute on the highway. And after they exchanged numbers, they started dating. Best part: Apollo revealed that he lied to Phaedra about her age!
Just before the birth of their first son Ayden, Phaedra and Apollo had a hilarious (and very phallic) photo shoot at their house. Behold: Phaedra's Pickle Pregnancy Shoot.
The photoshoots didn't stop once Ayden arrived. The pair also had another set-up after the birth.
Even when Ayden hit 11-months-old, the couple showed their undeniable devotion for their child, though they disagreed about how to discipline him. "Apollo wants to be stern," says Phaedra. "And I want to love on him and coddle him and give him whatever he wants." In this Season 3 clip, they also argued over Apollo's alleged run-in with the law at the time—sadly, it wouldn't be his last.
In the early half of Season Four, Phaedra talked about how much she adored her "little prince" Ayden, her only child until the arrival of Mr. President.
During their Season 5 trip, Kenya Moore was acting flirty with Apollo—and Phaedra was none too happy about it. So she made sure to wear a bathing suit that ensured he kept his eyes on her "donkey booty."
Despite their marriage coming under the fire, they couple made sure to show that they only had eyes for each other in this Season 5 clip.
At that season's reunion, Apollo dropped a major bomb when he claimed Kenya was constantly flirting with him. Thus, the birth of "Text Gate." (NeNe's reaction to the the claim is priceless.)
Fans saw the strain of the couple's marriage during this Season 6 moment, when Phaedra left the party after Apollo was seen speaking to Kenya again.
Phaedra and Apollo celebrated the birth of their newborn son Dylan (a.k.a. "Mr. President")—as well as a new home—during Season 6. In this clip, Phaedra looks back on her emergency C-section and shares the "special" first moments she had with her son.
Peace never lasts long in the ATL—and when the ladies sat down for the Season 6 Reunion, the topic of Textgate came up once again. Phaedra made sure she had the last word.
