The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has been candid about her connection with Cuffe, how the two first met and started dating, and how the pair "spent five straight hours on the phone" the first time they spoke. She has also previously addressed just how difficult their split was for her in a statement on Instagram, saying, in part, "This situation is profoundly devastating.

Diving is the one of the most intimate experiences one can have with oneself from safety to beauty and ultimately building confidence."

In addition to her solo time, Meghan also spent quality time at the beach with her children, sharing the fun-filled moments in her March 23 Instagram post, captioned, "Beach trips with kids be like..."
