Phaedra is trying to make the most of Apollo’s final moments of freedom after he was sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft on July 8. The ‘RHOA’ star wants her husband to spend as much quality time as possible with his sons before he heads to prison, and she’s even arranged for them to take some family portraits together, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
So sad! Phaedra Parks wants her two young sons, Ayden and Dylan, to have something to remember their dad, Apollo Nida, by, so she’s decided to capture their sweet father-son relationship on camera before Apollo begins his eight-year prison sentence. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on their heartbreaking family photo shoot.
Phaedra Parks & Apollo Nida’s Sons: Heartbreaking Pics They’ll Take Before Jail
As devastated as Phaedra must be by Apollo’s shocking conviction, she is putting on a brave face for her sons, Ayden and Dylan, who are both under the age of four. Knowing the boys will have few memories of their father from this part of their lives, Phaedra has come up with a plan to make sure that they will always know how much they mean to Apollo.
“One thing that she did was hire a photographer to come in and take a slew of family portraits,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She herself doesn’t want to be in most of them. She’s planning it for this weekend, I believe, and wants it to be all about Apollo and the boys. She wants to capture that father-son dynamic so that her children will know that they have a father and that he’s very much a part of their lives.”
“She wants them to know he’s not absent and will never be absent from them and these photographs and video that I’m sure she will also take will make her boys understand just that — that Apollo never left.”
Phaedra must have so many conflicting feelings about Apollo right now, so we think it is so strong and amazing of her to make her children’s relationship with their father a top priority!

All things considered, Phaedra is doing pretty well after Apollo was sentenced to jail for bank fraud and identity theft for eight years on July 8.
“She’s basically working. That’s how I deal with things too; when I have a lot going on, I just put more into work,” her close friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kandi Burruss told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I know that she’s promoting her book and doing the book tour and stuff like that and she’s not really trying to focus as much on what’s happening.”
