Shane Keough Welcomes His First Child

Shane addressed his baby girl directly in the caption of his post, which featured a carousel of photos of the spouses' and their newborn. "They say time flies, but your mother [Francheska] and I counted every one of those (248) days from the morning we found out she was pregnant to the day you were born 10/07/2023 [at] 6:18pm, one week early to the day of your due date," Shane wrote, before revealing that his sister, Kara Keough Bosworth, was in the delivery room as well. "Nothing could have prepared us for the moment when you were laid on your mother's chest after she labored for nearly (12) hours and gave birth to you with nothing more than some counterpressure from me, and Aunty [Kara] during contractions."

"All the nieces and nephews in the world could only prepare us so much for the overwhelming emotions and relief of hearing your first cry and seeing you open your eyes to the sound of your mother's voice," he continued. "We are so lucky to have you here with us, and you are so lucky to have the mother you do and the overwhelming love of family around you..."

Jeana’s daughter, Kara Keough Bosworth, is already a mama. Kara’s baby boy Vaughn was born in 2021, a year after she tragically lost her second child, son McCoy, a few days after his birth in April 2020. Kara and her husband, Kyle Bosworth, are also parents to an adorable little girl named Decker.

“She’s a warrior, man,” Shane once said of Kara on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “Seeing her little boy, seeing the joy that he’s bringing to the family and so many moms around the world who have suffered a loss like that, it’s inspiring beyond belief.”

In the next slides, Shane showed himself and Francheska cuddled up on a blanket, smiling at the sonogram images and cuddling their dog. In the caption, Shane wrote: “Keough family grows by one October 2023.”
