Kara Keough Bosworth is opening up about the loss of her son, McCoy Casey Bosworth, who passed away shortly after birth in the beginning of April. Kara, who is the daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough, shared an intimate family photo, as well as a sweet message to her son who would have been three weeks old.
“You would have been three weeks old today,” Kara wrote in an April 27 Instagram post. “You would be ‘waking up’ and showing us more of you. I would be getting the hang of being a mom of two. My milk would be regulating to your schedule. Your sister would be asking questions about your belly button, and you would have peed on her at least once by now.”
Kara continued the message, writing, “Daddy would be sending texts to his football buddies about how our giant baby boy could probably already out-lift them. We would be laughing that you never fit into newborn diapers, not even for one day. I’d be exhausted, leaking, and happy. Instead...We’re missing you.”
She then addressed mothers who have been in a similar situation, adding, “To all my fellow ‘instead’ mamas...thank you for reminding me that we’re not alone, and that we can survive this. He didn’t, but we have to. And we will.”
RHOC alum Gretchen Rossi shared her love for the family in a comment, writing, “Sending you so much love, our hearts just break for you guys.”
Vicki Gunvalson also shared her support, adding, “Oh Kara, you are in my thoughts daily. I’m so glad you took so many photos. He will never be forgotten. Peace be with you all. So sad.”
“What a beautiful picture,” commented Tamra Judge. “Thinking about you and your family. Big hugs and prayers.”
To honor McCoy, the family has created a March of Dimes fundraiser in his name, hoping to collect donations to support mothers and babies in need.
