While the eight-year prison sentence handed down to Apollo Nida for bank fraud is clearly a devastating blow to both him and wife Phaedra Parks, the impact his jail time will have on their two young sons may be the most crushing part of it all.


The couple, who are parents to Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1, are reportedly both concerned about how Apollo’s absence will affect their sons — and to top it off, Apollo has growing fears about whether or not his wife will stand by his side while he does his time.

“Phaedra saw this coming and she and Apollo have known for a long time now that he’d be sentenced. It’s not a surprise to her. The only thing she’s worried about is Ayden and Dylan growing up without their dad,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.

“It’s devastating to her that her two boys will miss their father during some of the most precious growing years of their lives,” adds the source.

Although Phaedra may not have seen her husband’s crimes coming, it’s far from Apollo’s first run-in with the law. Prior to the couple’s wedding in 2009, Apollo served five years in prison for auto title fraud.

Do you think Apollo and Phaedra will make their marriage last in light of his lengthy prison term? Should she stick by her hubby or move on? Sound off in the comments!
