Meghan King Edmonds & Jim Edmonds Welcome First Child: Aspen

Congratulations are in order for Meghan King Edmonds and Jim Edmonds.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 32, and her former professional baseball player husband, 46, welcomed their first child together – daughter Aspen King Edmonds – on Thanksgiving Day (November 24), she announced via Instagram.

“Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz.,” announced the new mom.

She added: “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 every 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, helped me breathe, 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 healthy, strong happy 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 birthdate 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy’s baseball number 15 🙂 1+1+2+4+1+6=15 #secondsold #needlefree #naturalbirth #22hoursoflabor #aspenkingedmonds #thanksgivingbaby #inlove #cantstopstaring #birthplanwentasplanned #fullheadofblackhair #warriorbaby ——————– We are deliriously in love with our perfect Aspen ??.”

In October, the reality star shares snapshots from her baby bump photo shoot.

While this is the first child for Meghan, Jim is already dad to four children: daughters Lauren and Hayley with his first wife Lee Ann Horton, and son Landon and daughter Sutton with his second wife Allison Jayne Raski.

“We went through IVF and fortunately we got pregnant the first time,” Meghan shared, adding she didn’t have fertility issues, but Jim had undergone a vasectomy and froze his sperm.

“It was just such a long process with the IVF, step by step by step with so much information,” she added. “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.”
