RHOC’s Kara Keough Bosworth Shares She’s Pregnant with Baby No. 4 & Honors Her Late Son

The news comes a few months after Jeana Keough’s son Shane Keough announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child.

Kara Keough Bosworth, the daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough, is expecting another child with her husband, Kyle Bosworth.

How to Watch

She took to Instagram on July 27 to both share the exciting news and honor her late son, McCoy, who passed away a few days after his birth in April 2020. 

Kara Keough Bosworth’s Pregnancy Announcement and Tribute to Son McCoy

Looking back on the tragic loss she and her family experienced, Kara began her caption, “After McCoy died, sharing my sorrow with you all helped. Grieving out loud helped me name my feelings and confront them. Like a monster under the bed, they felt less scary in the daylight. Like maybe they couldn’t drag me down and eat me alive if I kept them well lit. So I hung my heart out for all to see, and swept exactly none of the muck under any damn rugs. F-ck a rug; I wanted to feel it all.”

Later that year, Kara and Kyle — who are also parents to their 7-year-old daughter, Decker — learned they were expecting their now-2-year-old son Vaughn

“[W]hen I found out I was pregnant with Vaughn, I quietly unfurled all the rugs. I lined every inch of my life with their insulating padding,” Kara’s caption continued. “I quit my job. I ignored phone calls and texts. I didn’t leave my house unless I had to (thanks Covid). I didn’t share our news with anyone that didn’t need to know. And when I did share, it sounded like I was telling them ‘I have ulcers.’ It was not a joyous celebration. It was a painstaking and brutal admission: ‘I’m at risk for another heart-shattering catastrophe.’”

“I was cocooned in a world of pain and did my best to shield myself from as many landmines as possible. I wanted to keep our joy private,” Kara wrote. “I stuck my head in the sand and just prayed to God that our baby would live — even though I reminded myself every day that he might not. Maybe what the all-knowing ‘they’ say about time is true, though. Because THIS time, we want to celebrate every second we have with this soul.”

Kara then shared how she and Kyle told Decker and Vaughn that they’re getting another sibling, writing, “We told the kids the day we got the positive test. Decker tells every person willing to listen that she’s the oldest of four kids as she lovingly strokes my belly. The joy spills out of her; she can’t wait to tell the world about Baby ‘Four.’”

“I’ve clawed my way on board with Decker for her sake, and Vaughn’s, and McCoy’s. It SHOULD be a happy occasion that they’re getting another sibling,” Kara continued. “For me, there’s just a cautious reluctance to let the excitement fully absorb. But I can’t deny that it feels right that those that have sat with us on our grieving bench should have a seat in our joyous swings too. So, for that reason (and because Decker and her grandmother [Jeana] can’t keep a secret for sh[-]t), I’m proud and scared as hell to announce Baby Bosworth #4 — due in November.”

Kara’s brother Shane Keough was naturally thrilled to hear about her pregnancy. He took to his Instagram Stories on July 27 to share Kara’s post, as well as write, “My daughter gets another cousin in November.”

Shane’s daughter, it turns out, is due just one month prior. He announced back in April that he and his wife, Francheska, are expecting their first child. The news came in the form of an Instagram post featuring photos of Shane and Francheska, as well as sonogram pictures and a onesie that read “baby Keough.” The post’s caption read, “Keough family grows by one October 2023.”
