Meghan King Edmonds Reveals She's Pregnant With a Boy

Meghan King Edmonds may soon be a mother of two, but this past weekend was all about her first child. The Real Housewives of Orange County mom celebrated daughter Aspen King Edmonds' very first birthday on November 24. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Meghan and her husband Jim Edmonds welcomed Aspen on Turkey Day last year, so of course Aspen will always be her "Thanksgiving baby." "Happy first birthday to the most joyful baby in the world, whose smile lights up a room and whose heart explodes with love," Meghan captioned a pic from a special first birthday photo shoot for Aspen on Instagram Friday.


Aspen's dad Jim also gushed about his daughter's big day on Instagram. "Somebody turned 1 this week," Jim said in a post featuring several photos from Aspen's first birthday celebration on Instagram, along with "#timeflies." "Thank you to friends and family for a great day today."

Meghan announced that she is expecting her second child with Jim on her blog on Monday. She will also discuss the happy news in Part 2 of the RHOC reunion Monday at 9/8c (clip above). The RHOC couple began the IVF process again this past summer in an effort to try to have a baby boy since they only had frozen only two female embryos. Meghan is currently 10 weeks pregnant, she shared in the blog.

The RHOC mom said that she was so glad to have her daughter, as well as her hubby and beloved pup Girly Girl, by her side as she underwent IVF for the second time. "Additionally, I had reliable companionship this time around with Jimmy by my side, my trusty furry companion Girly Girl and of course, baby Aspen," she wrote in her blog. "It may seem silly to mention Aspen and Girly Girl but this support system was everything to me during round 2 of IVF."
