Porsha and Dennis’ relationship

McKinley and Williams began dating in 2018 and welcomed their daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, into the world on March 22, 2019. However, shortly after their daughter was born, Williams found out that McKinley had been unfaithful during her pregnancy.

“To be disrespected at the most sacred time in life is like, I just can’t forgive that,” Williams said of her fiance’s infidelity on RHOA. “I’m looking at my daughter, telling her, ‘I’m going to work it out, I’m going to work it out.’ But some stuff is not forgivable, and I don’t think she would want me to have to deal with certain things. I don’t think she wants that.”

The two broke up briefly before getting back together. In fact, they were on and off so much that it was hard for fans to keep up with the relationship status of Williams.
