Meghan Edmonds Reveals She Gave Husband Jim an Ultimatum About a Baby


Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds is expecting her first child with Jim Edmonds, and after having their marriage criticized in the media, Meghan is finally opening up about her pregnancy and revealing that she had to give her husband an ultimatum to get his sperm “out of retirement,” after his vasectomy.

“I think I said ‘Baby, or no me at all,'” she confessed to PEOPLE. “All or nothing.”

Jim, 46, of course, agreed, and the couple conceived on their first try.

“I’m so over the moon! I couldn’t believe it the first time I peed on a stick and I saw that little line kind of get a little darker,” Meghan previously told the mag.

“It was just such a long process with the IVF, step by step by step with so much information,” she continued. “I’ve always dreamed of this, but it’s still such a miracle. I can’t even describe the feeling.”

The most painful part for her were the drug stimulation injections. “I was swollen and in pain and it hurt to even sit straight up. It was awful. And then the recovery from that was hard,” she shares.

But now, Meghan is looking forward to welcoming her daughter, who is due around the holidays.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • Hmmm, An ultimatum? … Cause we all know THAT always goes well for a marriage or baby!!!!


    How pathetic. Threaten to leave your husband if he doesn’t give you his sperm? Great foundation for a marriage.

    • Not to mention how their daughter will feel, when she finds out how wanted she was from “good ol dad”. I don’t see this marriage lasting.

  • Bon Vivant

    Not a good sign.

    I hate it when people act like having a baby will fix things. You forced the man and having a baby will only magnify issues even more. He’s not interested in the least.

    • Gemini. Exactly. Not interested in her or her baby. Hope he gives her an ultimatum, to hut the street.

  • Lisa

    She wasnt saying a baby will fix her marriage. She was telling her husband I want a baby and of you dont I am going to leave and marry someone else who does. She has a right to be a mom if that is in her heart so deeply.

    Unfortunately that’s like getting your Vows renewed. The marriage is in trouble and probably will end, for this family’s sake I hope I’m wrong that’s not good to bring a baby into a situation where 1 person really didn’t want a child.

    I just don’t get why she didn’t have a baby with her first husband, if being a mother is so important.


      He didn’t have enough $.

  • He was fixed for a reason. She knew he didn’t want any more kids. What a wench.

  • Jane

    She stated in an interview last year (WWHL maybe?, or the reunion) that she and Jimmy discussed having children prior to getting married, she was clear to him that she wanted a child of her own. If he changed his mind after the wedding, it makes sense to me she would give an ultimatum. I would have done the same thing.

  • Marie

    I hope it works out. It doesn’t look so good right now. Maybe she turns evil while pregnant. I did. My poor husband withstood it and it’s going great now.

    Some people should not be allowed to breed…just saying.
