Watch: Porsha Williams Splits From Fiance Dennis McKinley

This newest development in the lives of The Real Housewives of Atlanta's stars has fans wondering how soon the next season can get here. 

On Monday, May 10, Porsha Williams took to Instagram to confirm she's in a romantic relationship with Simon Guobadia. As fans of her Bravo show know, Simon and ex Falynn Guobadia appeared on the most recent season of RHOA, and the pair had publicly announced their parting of ways just last month after two years of marriage.

Porsha shared a cuddly photo of herself and Simon enjoying a day out on a boat. In the caption, the 39-year-old Dish Nation host acknowledged that the romance would likely come as a surprise to some, given the "optics" of herself and Falynn knowing each other. 

"Our relationship began a month ago—yes we are crazy in love," Porsha wrote. "I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most."

She continued, "For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That's between the two of them. Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon's divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody's lives."

For his part, Simon later confirmed via Instagram on May 10 that the pair is currently engaged, and he posted a look at the engagement ring. "What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there - happiness," he wrote in part. "So when I asked...she said yes. That is ALL that mattered."

Porsha, who shares 2-year-old daughter Pilar "PJ" Jhena with ex Dennis McKinley, complimented both Dennis and Simon for their upbeat attitudes amid the whirlwind turn of events. 

"Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ," she wrote. "Two black men stepping up and being amazing people-let's praise them!!!! It's truly a beautiful moment in my life & we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together."

Among those offering support in the comments was NeNe Leakes, who posted, "Congrats P! Always choose happiness first #Lovewins."

Falynn has yet to publicly address Porsha's announcement. 

During a Watch What Happens Live appearance in December 2020, a fan asked Porsha about the status of her on-off relationship with Dennis. The former couple called off their initial engagement in June 2019, but she announced in December 2019 that they were re-engaged

"We are single," the star said on WWHL late last year. "But we're very cordial. We have a great co-parenting relationship."
