Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was a weepy one as the cast let the tears flow throughout the episode. Meghan King Edmonds provided one of the most emotional moments of the episode as she broke down in tears when she realized that only one of her babies had survived after she underwent IVF earlier this season (clip above).
Meghan is now well on her way to becoming a mom to her first child, a baby girl, later this fall. Still, she said that all of those emotions came rushing back to her as she relived that heartbreaking moment. "It’s hard for me to watch this scene back," Meghan tweeted during the episode Monday night. "I’m so grateful Jimmy could be there with me."
She added, "I’m currently 7th months pregnant and have enjoyed every second, but the loss of the other baby felt so real."
Some fans were also pleasantly surprised to see Meghan's usually gruff and tough husband Jim Edmonds being so sweet and compassionate during that scene. "I think he forgot there were cameras around," Meghan joked on Twitter.
Indeed, Meghan and Jim's good friend Shannon Beador previously told The Daily Dish that she and her husband David have "had so much fun" with the couple off-camera. "They're both just a lot of fun to be around," she said. "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."
Though some viewers have questioned Jim's enthusiasm about his and Meghan's little girl, Shannon also assured us that he is looking forward to growing their family as much as Meghan is. "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 told The Daily Dish. "He's completely excited and interested that he's having a baby. He's over the moon about it."
