Jim Edmonds Shows His Softer (and Musical) Side with Shannon Beador
The #RHOC husband is actually a big softie when it comes to kids, too.
Meghan King Edmonds' husband Jim Edmonds doesn't always seem the most enthusiastic on The Real Housewives of Orange County, whether it's about his baby on the way or the latest drama among the cast. But there is, in fact, a softer, looser side of Jim, and we have video evidence to prove it.
Jim attended a Grease Bingo Night at the Standard Hotel in New York Sunday with Meghan's fellow Housewife Shannon Beador and his business partner. And it was "Greased Lightning" as the song from the iconic '70s musical provided the soundtrack to the game, and Shannon and Jim busted a move (yes, those moves) and sang their hearts out like they were a couple of T-Birds straight out of Rydell High. "It was the craziest thing I've ever been to, just people dancing, and so then I had to join in on the fun," Shannon told The Daily Dish. "We both had a good time."
Jim was smiling away in the video, which many fans commented on Instagram is a side of him we don't often see on RHOC. "And that's a shame, because he is such a nice guy, and we've had so much fun with Meghan and Jim off-camera," Shannon said. "They're both just a lot of fun to be around. It's a shame that not everybody gets to feel that or see that because that's all they are is just very kind and fun."
Shannon said something else fans might not realize from watching RHOC is how much of a family man Jim is. "He loves kids, and I'll never forget two years ago when we were doing the opening title credits for the show, Tamra [Judge] had Sarah [Rodriguez] and Ryan [Vieth] and everyone with her and Ava was a little baby, and they had to get their hair and makeup done, so he literally held onto Ava, I'd say, for about an hour, he was so good with her," Shannon explained. "And the other thing is Meghan and Jim have come over to my house, and he loves my kids. And he talks about them all the time. And they'll always say, 'Well, Mr. Edmonds said he'd adopt us, Mom.' He's just really great with kids, and the kids really love him."
Though some fans have questioned how interested Jim is in Meghan's pregnancy and the impending arrival of his little girl, Shannon said he can't wait to welcome his fifth child to the family. "He is a great dad, and he's gonna be a great dad. It really bothers me when I — I try not to read the social media — but it bothers me when I see certain people say things like, 'Oh, he's disinterested,'" Shannon said. "He's completely excited and interested that he's having a baby. He's over the moon about it."
Meghan can't wait to be a mom, either. Watch her adorable shopping trip in preparation of her baby's arrival, below.
