Porsha Stewart is apparently gleefully happy that her marriage to Kordell Stewart is over, so much so that she’s posting about it on Instagram. The 32-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star posted on social media Thursday shortly after her divorce to the former Pittsburgh Steeler was finalized.

“Today is the 1st day of the rest of my LIFE” #blessed#lovinglife #favored #free,” she captioned the photo below.

Additionally, Porsha is currently in the process of restoring her maiden name. According to an attorney for her ex-husband, she will now drop the last name Stewart and revert to her maiden name, Williams.

“Porsha previously stated she was keeping Kordell’s last name, which made Kordell very concerned about the damage it could cause,” said attorney Shiel Edlin.

“However, she reconsidered and decided to restore her maiden name, Williams. Kordell now believes he can restore the Stewart name and brand, for which it has been known through many generations, one of character, integrity, honesty and truthfulness.”

Porsha recently changed her Instagram from @PorshaDStewart to @Porsha4Real.

She previously said she would keep the Stewart last name because “she owns it.”
