It’s been a little more than a year since Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia became engaged, and as they plan their wedding, they’ve already got at least one thing on lock when it comes to their new life together: blending their families.
After getting to a good place with Dennis McKinley on The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Porsha's Family Matters, Simon has been a doting stepdad to Pilar Jhena McKinley, 3. And Porsha has also been there for Simon’s children in a major way.
Simon and Porsha recently celebrated the end of the school year and his kids graduating to the next grade in a joy-filled celebration at home. “Congratulations Homeschool graduates - Christian (12), Benjamin (11) and Ximena (10),” Simon gushed about his children in a May 29 Instagram post. “All graduated with Honors, and elevating to various grade levels.”
He went on to show his gratitude for being able to successfully “co-parent these exceptionally gifted children” with his exes. “Learning to put our children first has not only been good for our children, but has been good for us individually,” Simon continued. “Co-parenting is not easy because we have to navigate our personal issues to get to a place that allow for our kids to become priority.”
Simon also applauded Porsha for not only being there for her daughter, PJ, but also for Christian, Benjamin, and Ximena. “Finally, I am blessed with a future wife in [Porsha] that loves and supports our village, by being present in every child’s life including her very own adorable Pilar (3). My prayer this Sunday is that other parents get to experience this same blessing as well - that of co-parenting effectively,” Simon ended his post. “Now, let’s go celebrate this family.”
Porsha previously shared photos of the celebration on her Instagram last week, applauding the graduates for all they accomplished over the past year, as well as praising their parents for raising exceptional children. “Congratulations [to] these [superstars] (Ximena, Christian, Benjamin)!!! Simon and their mothers have done an amazing job rearing them in the right direction with love and care as well as making their education a priority!” Porsha wrote on Instagram on May 26. “They are compassionate, kind [and] full of intelligence!! Hats off to you all for all of your hard work this year!”
Porsha also thanked their teacher and the family’s home staff “for all that you do,” ending her post with one last wish for Christian, Benjamin, and Ximena: “Love you [all,] the best is yet to come!”
Earlier this spring, Porsha and Simon gave a glimpse at all of their kids during their Easter celebration as one big happy family.
In fact, Simon, who also has an adult son named Quentin, always takes the opportunity to show on social media how proud he is of his kids, including this recent like-father-like-daughter moment he posted with Ximena on May 20.
Of course, he also sneaks in candid shots of Porsha and PJ at home, whether it’s getting some work done in the office or having a “mommy and daughter day” at the pool.
