Suffice to say, a lot went down at the celebration. Keep scrolling to get all the details.

Shereé Whitfield and Bob Whitfield’s Relationship Today

Upon Bob’s arrival, Shereé explained in a confessional where their relationship stands today following their 2007 divorce and subsequent reconciliation. “Back in the day, I felt like I was a single mom because my ex-husband was busy — he was a full-time professional football player — but Bob is involved in Mecca’s life,” she said. “This is his first grandbaby and I’m so, so happy about that.”

Shereé added that she and Bob “are good,” and she even went on to introduce him to her current boyfriend, Martell Holt. “This is his first time meeting Martell,” Shereé noted. “And it’s important to have my kids see us all together. We get along, we’re good.”

Thankfully, the trio did exactly that.

Bob Whitfield’s Surprising Revelation

Shereé later gathered everyone to take family photos, and it was then that the other Atlanta ladies noticed that Bob was standing with someone they didn’t recognize. Asked Sanya Richards-Ross, “Is that Bob’s girl?”

Kandi Burruss, however, had a different thought: “Does he have another daughter we don’t know about?” 

The group continued to speculate, but in the end, it turned out Kandi was right. Bob revealed as much when he introduced her to Shereé, referring to the woman, Candice, as his “daughter.”

Naturally, Shereé was surprised. As she explained in a confessional, “Before we got married, Bob said he had two kids. We then had two more kids. So 26 years later, come to find out he has three kids.” 

Candice, meanwhile, made a sweet revelation about her half-brother Kairo and half-sister Kaleigh Whitfield. “I’ve gotten a chance to be at some family events with Kairo and Kaleigh,” she said, “so they’ve been really good to me.”

Like Shereé, the Atlanta ladies were all taken aback. As Kandi shared in a confessional, “I have known Bob since I was 19 years old. I didn’t know he had a secret child, so this is news to me.”

The group then took it upon themselves to ask Bob some questions, including the reason he never told Shereé about Candice. His response? “We were on a need-to-know basis of things back then.”

“You were married to her!” Kenya Moore said with a laugh. “What are you talking about?”

Kandi then quipped, “Bob, at the baby reveal, you decide to reveal another baby?”

Added Cynthia Bailey in her own confessional, “We got a lot of reveals going on tonight! ‘Meet my daughter that you didn’t know anything about.’ Where’s the cake?!”
