During part two of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Meghan King Edmonds revealed she is currently pregnant with her second child, a baby boy.
Meghan took to her personal blog earlier today to share the news with everyone, before the reunion aired.
“Aspen is going to be a big sister!” Meghan announced. “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 youâ€™ll see that Iâ€™m only one month pregnant, but that was filmed five weeks ago: we are now ten weeks pregnant (and Iâ€™m feeling every bit of it)! Because you wonâ€™t see any of our current journey on RHOC, Iâ€™ll share our beautiful journey with you here!”
King Edmonds continues, “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.”
Meghan explained her baby boy was conceived through IVF. “We began the IVF process over the summer,” she shared. “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 didnâ€™t care about the sex of the baby, he just didnâ€™t want me to have to again endure the emotional rollercoaster that comes with IVF. (If we had decided to transfer one of the female embryos my drug regimen wouldâ€™ve been much less involved than full blown IVF.) But I insisted: I was more comfortable with going through IVF again since I knew what to expect. So we moved forward with IVF.”
