Phaedra Parks Talks About Falling in Love With Apollo — After He Was Released From Prison!

Phaedra Parks is madly in love with her man, Apollo Nida — as evidenced by their adorable son and second baby on the way — but there was a time when the lawyer distanced herself from her now-husband.

The two actually met on the highway in rush hour traffic after Apollo noticed Phae-Phae and followed her home (in the least creepy way possible). They began dating, but Phaedra broke things off when she realized how young he was, yet they remained friends.

Phaedra admits that Apollo’s time in prison (he served nearly 5 years for racketeering) threw a wrench in their relationship, telling OK! magazine, “So obviously he went to prison and we really didn’t keep in touch during that time but I thought about him a lot but we didn’t keep in touch — I was dating someone else, he was dating someone else.”

Yet the lawyer and the jailbird eventually found each other again and are now happier than ever! Are you surprised that Southern Belle Phaedra ended up marrying someone who served time behind bars? Sound off below!
