Hours before the Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion tonight, Meghan King Edmonds decided to scoop the show and announce that she is pregnant on her personal blog! Nothing like going out on your own terms.
So we’ve made it to the announcement: Aspen is going to be a big sister! It was so hard for us to keep it a secret from everyone especially since we shared our entire IVF journey with Aspen on RHOC from the very beginning. Tonight on the RHOC reunion you’ll see that I’m only one month pregnant, but that was filmed five weeks ago: we are now ten weeks pregnant (and I’m feeling every bit of it)! Because you won’t see any of our current journey on RHOC, I’ll share our beautiful journey with you here!
Is that Meghan acknowledging that she is done with the show?
When Aspen was only a few months old Jimmy and I knew we wanted to add another baby to the mix. Yes, Aspen has half-siblings but we wanted her to be able to share in the joy of waking up to a sibling every day of her life. Plus her half-siblings are completely enamored by Aspen and they LOVED the idea of expanding our family even more.
We began the IVF process over the summer. We started from scratch because we really wanted to have a boy (Jimmy has a total of five girls and one boy) and we only had two frozen female embryos. This was a difficult decision for us. Jimmy was adamant he didn’t care about the sex of the baby, he just didn’t want me to have to again endure the emotional rollercoaster that comes with IVF.
So the baby boy is expected to arrive in June. Since RHOOC films at about the same time at RHOA that means the baby will probably be here before filming starts anyway, so that is probably what she meant about none of this pregnancy being on the show. In other news they were hanging out with Andy Cohen over the Thanksgiving holidays in St. Louis looking pretty chummy. So maybe we can’t count her out yet.
I am happy for Jim and Meghan. Clearly they wanted a boy. But she’s going to need another nanny, don’t you think? Aspen just turned one, three days ago. Are you surprised she is pregnant again?
