Phaedra took to her Instagram feed last week, where she posted a series of photos taken at Dylan's surprise 11th birthday party at the Icebox showroom in Atlanta. In the photos, Dylan can be seen standing in front of a watch-shaped birthday cake while wearing a Versace shirt, trying on diamond-encrusted watches and chains, and posing for photos with his mom and big brother.

At the tail end of the carousel, Phaedra posted a video of her surprising Dylan in his classroom with bags of Chick-fil-A on his birthday. "Surprise, surprise. It's Dylan's birthday, so we're having Chick-fil-A today," Phaedra said in the video, to a round of cheers from his classmates.

Why does Phaedra Parks call her youngest son Mr. President?

No, Dylan isn't the president. At least, not yet. Phaedra has been referring to her youngest son by this unique nickname since birth.

In 2013, Phaedra told Us Weekly that they were waiting to officially name Dylan in a traditional African naming ceremony, but they had been referring to him by his nickname in the meantime. "We've been calling the baby Mr. President!" she told the publication at the time.

Some Married to Medicine viewers might have been surprised to see Apollo when he made an appearance at Part 3 of the Season 10 reunion. Apollo spoke publicly about their relationship, during the reunion, clearing the air and addressing rumors about what their relationship looks like now.

"Phaedra and I's relationship is kind of impeccable at this moment," Apollo said. "It started out topsy-turvy when I first came home. I was always upset, she was upset."

During an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this January, Phaedra said that things are going well when it comes to co-parenting with Apollo. "Co-parenting is going great," Phaedra said, noting that the boys are "most definitely" with her full time. However, Apollo "does take [the kids] for weekends...He likes to take them," she said.
