Well, there’s been rumors going around for a while now that Meghan King Edmonds was going to leave The Real Housewives of Orange County, due to her relationship issues being exposed during season 11, which just officially wrapped filming on October 20th.
A rep for Meghan has come forward and said that the rumors aren’t just rumors — they’re facts!
She’s going to St. Louis to have her baby in December and that’s all I can confirm.
Her husband, Jim Edmonds, has two kids in St. Louis, Landon and Sutton, that can’t wait to meet their new half-sister, and welcome her to the family.
Currently, Meghan is 8-months pregnant, and she’s due to have her baby before the holidays, so the family will have a bundle of joy for Christmas!
Meghan had this to say about how the kids feel about their half-sister:
The little ones are so excited [for their half-sibling] and it’s so stinking cute. My 8-year-old stepdaughter just wants to be in the nursery with me all day long, put together everything there is to put together with me… she’s just being a little mother. My stepson is 10 and he’s like, ‘whatever. He actually likes to feel the baby kick whereas my stepdaughter, she doesn’t like to feel the baby kick. She’s weirded out by it.
Jim has two other daughters, Lauren, 23, and Hayley, 19, that reside in Orange County, but they’re not close to Meghan whatsoever, so they’re not really concerned about their new half-sister being so far away.
Meghan herself has said in interviews that she’s not close to Hayley, and she doesn’t even remember meeting Lauren:
The first time I met Lauren, I didn’t even know I was meeting her! Jimmy and I were taking his boat out for a ride in Lake Havasu and we docked it next to some of his friends’ boats. Lauren was 19. I remember meeting her and having to ask Jimmy later, ‘which one was your daughter?’
We definitely want to wish Meghan a great time, and we hope everything goes extra smooth with her pregnancy!
Still, it looks like there’s going to be an open slot to fill for The Real Housewives of Orange County season 12…
