Looks like baby Dream Kardashian, who was cute as can be while donning a Christmas getup this weekend, will soon have some competition in the adorable department: Meghan King Edmonds, whom you might recognize from The Real Housewives series (OC edition), has given birth to an equally sweet baby girl!
The housewife shared the good news last night, when she posted her congratulatory note from @therealgirlygirl (AKA Meghan and husband Jim’s dog, Girly Girl), which read “Happy Thanksgiving mommy! I can’t wait to meet my new sister!”
Today, however, Meghan is spilling the beans (including her new daughter’s perfect-for-winter moniker) about her little one, now also a half-sister to Jim’s four children from a previous union, along with a darling photo to boot.
“Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz,” Meghan began.
She also shared the heartwarming details of her husband’s support throughout the birthing process.
“From the hours leading up to the birth, I had the most incredible husband, he didn’t leave my side. I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through each contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn’t do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours. I am so proud and impressed of the team we made to welcome Aspen, our bond is more unshakable than I ever imagined. We have a strong, healthy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up! I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling, but I survived, unscathed, without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too). Her birthday 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy’s baseball number 15. :)”
Wow! We’ve got to say, we’re pretty impressed, not only with Meghan’s stamina (22 hours!? Ayi yi yi!) but with Jim’s hugely supportive role throughout the pregnancy, which was particularly grueling, given that he had previously undergone a vasectomy and frozen his sperm.
Meghan was eventually able to conceive via IVF, and the rest is clearly history!
Congratulations, you two — she’s precious!
