Does ‘RHONY’ alumna Eboni K. Williams have a boyfriend?

As of this writing, Eboni is a single woman. Her last public relationship was with her ex-fiance, CFO Steven Gleen. The two were together for four years before calling it quits during the coronavirus pandemic (also known as COVID-19). Eboni shared on The Wendy Williams Show (RIP!) that she and her fiance called it quits after he chose to quarantine with his children over her.

After her engagement ended, the Grio News with Eboni K. Williams host embarked on a new chapter of her life-creating a family on her own. In 2022, she began the sperm donation and in-vitro fertilization process, a decision that was not easy but was driven by her strong desire for motherhood.

She eventually froze her eggs and years later, her dream came true as she became pregnant with her daughter, whom she lovingly refers to as “one of one” due to the “remarkable miracle” it took for her to carry her baby.

“I did one egg retrieval at 34 years old, not really having a clear intention on if I would use those eggs or when I would use the eggs,” Eboni said during her pregnancy announcement to People. “And six years later, that one egg retrieval led to one genetically normal embryo, which led to one successful embryo transfer and — one pregnancy later — I'll soon have, God willing, one beautifully healthy baby girl. So it really does feel like fate."

Eboni K. Williams said the COVID-19 pandemic made her rethink motherhood.

2020 was an eye-opening year for many of us. The start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which included quarantines, virtual Verzuz battles, and far too many Zoom meetups, was enough to make most people rethink their previous beliefs.

For Eboni, the pandemic allowed her to take inventory of how she defined a family. She told People that she initially never thought she would be a mother, stating she never “grew up fantasizing about having kids and what I would name them and all of that.”

Eboni also said she didn’t have a “surefire” plan of having a baby even after she froze her eggs and thought she would “never use them.” However, she shared that the pandemic caused her to “reassess” what family means and encouraged her to move forward with the family she desired.

“It was the pandemic and having some real existential conversations within my own self about legacy and life and love and the different ways in which I really wanted to explore family."

"I really freed myself of the rigidness of what legacy, love, and family could look like," she added. "Those are the three pillars I reassessed, and it helped shake me from this idea of, 'I have to have it this way on this timeline everyone else is following.'"

Congratulations, Eboni!!
