Monica identified the father as Braxton Knight, a 29-year-old Utah resident she met while filming RHOSLC Season 4.

“I’ve been dating him for a year, and no one even knows who he is...” she said during her appearance on The Viall Files podcast. “We actually met during filming. I met him filming… It was so shocking to find out we were [pregnant]. We weren’t trying, I was on birth control, it was a complete shock. We didn’t ever plan on really having kids. And then the second we found out he just was so protective and so caring. He was also very much like, ‘Your body, your choice. Whatever you choose, I’m just here to be your support system and your partner through it.’”
