Congratulations are in order for Kara Keough Bosworth! The daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough welcomed a baby boy on March 31, as she confirmed in a recent Instagram post.
On April 10, Kara took to Instagram to announce the arrival of her little bundle of joy, sharing several adorable photos of her newborn baby. In the emotional post, the mom also paid tribute to her late son, McCoy Casey Bosworth, who passed away shortly after childbirth in April 2020.
“The day McCoy was born, I started writing a story. Our story. I don’t typically like to spoil the ending, but in this case the ending is a new beginning,” she wrote. “Introducing Decker and McCoy’s baby brother: Vaughn Mack Bosworth.”
Kara went on to share some more details about the birth, writing “Measuring at 20.5 inches and weighing 7 pounds 6 ounces of heaven-sent sweetness. Born on 3.31.21 in Room 11, 6 days before what should have been his big brother’s 1st birthday.”
Kara also revealed the special meaning behind her newborn’s name. “His name means “small/little” and “hope,” she wrote, before concluding, “It’s not lost on us that if we hadn’t lost Mack, we’d never know Vaughn. And yet, here he is, an unexpected serendipity. A little hope.”
Kara first revealed that her family was expecting a new addition on Instagram earlier this month. On April 4, she shared a photo of an Easter basket full of colorful eggs and a baby onesie with a rainbow on it.
“For Christians, for Jews, and for me, this time is a reminder of the death of firstborn sons. Sacrifice. Suffering. Mourning. Grief. Why is this night different than other nights? Last Easter was the worst night of my life. We held our firstborn son in our arms as he took his final breaths. We spent time in the hell that is watching your child die. This Easter is decidedly better. Despite that wretched Easter night, I can’t ignore that this day also represents rebirth. Renewed hope,” she wrote at the time.
She continued, “It is said that the word ‘Easter’ is derived from the goddess Eostre. Eostre, the goddess of fertility, symbolized the birth of new life and the dawn of spring. And so it is for us.”
