Kelly Dodd Reveals the Real Reason She Only Has One Kid

The RHOC mom came clean about her plans to never get pregnant again.

Once upon a time, Kelly Dodd gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. But, don't expect that to ever happen again. Speaking frankly to PEOPLE, The Real Housewives of Orange County mama came clean on how she felt about being pregnant. And, she didn't mince words: "It was horrible." 

In fact, Kelly spent her entire first trimester (and then some!) battling the nasty condition known as morning sickness. "The first four months, I was throwing up, so I lost it literally and figuratively,” she shared. “It was horrible. It’s why I only have one kid.” 

Thank goodness, then, that her one-and-only child turned out to be such a doll. Jolie is now 12 years old, and Kelly's not afriad to own it: she's a darn good mom. "So far, I’ve done a great job," she said. But still, she knows that some challenges could be on the horizon. "Her teenage years are upon us. So we’ll see.”

Somehow, though, we have a feeling that Jolie won't go through the terrible teens. Kelly is teaching her mini me to be kind and responsible at an early age. Her proudest moment as a parent, she said, was seeing: "my daughter going to the soup kitchen and really realizing how grateful and thankful she is for her life and her childhood and knowing that she has it better than most and she’s appreciative of that.”
