Congratulations to Meghan King Edmonds and her husband, Jim Edmonds!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Aspen King Edmonds, on Thursday.
Meghan took to Instagram to announce the news on Friday, with an adorable photo of her dog, Girly Girl, with a sign reading “Happy Thanksgiving Mommy! I can’t wait to meet my new sister!”
“@therealgirlygirl sent me this note while Jimmy and I welcomed our new baby girl on Thanksgiving!” she wrote. “Our hearts are exploding ? (Stay tuned for name, pics, baby info, and birth story info!).”
Sure enough, the first photo of little Aspen arrived on Saturday.
“Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz.,” Meghan captioned a sweet mother-daughter pic, before sharing her birth story.
“From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband, he didn’t leave my side,” she wrote, praising the former baseball pro. “I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn’t do it anymore.”
“He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours. I am so proud and impressed of the team we made to welcome Aspen, our bond is more unshakable than I ever imagined,” Meghan continued.
“We have a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up!” she gushed. “I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too) her birthdate 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy’s baseball number 15 :).”
Later that day, Girly Girl finally met her little sister.
“Puppy and baby in love already @therealgirlygirl,” Meghan captioned the cute snap.
