What an exciting time for Meghan King Edmonds and her husband Jim Edmonds!
In an exclusive interview with People Magazine, Meghan divulged the happy news that she’s pregnant with her first child. The reality star’s husband already has four kids from previous marriages.
The joyous occasion comes about a year after the couple announced on the season 10 reunion episode of Real Housewives of Orange County that they were trying to conceive through IVF. Similarly to Chrissy Teigen, the blonde admitted she and Jim struggled with fertility issues. In this case, the Mr. Edmonds had undergone a vasectomy after his second marriage failed.
Thankfully for the pair, J.E. froze his sperm following the vasectomy which allowed the couple to proceed with IVF. To make matters even better, the beauty confessed they got pregnant on the FIRST try.
The thrilled gal gushed:
“I’m so over the moon, I couldn’t believe it the first time I peed on a stick and I saw that little line kind of get a little darker. I’ve always dreamed of this, but it’s still such a miracle. I can’t even describe the feeling.”
Despite the revelry, the 31-year-old copped to a very painful and “awful” IVF process thanks to INTENSE drug stimulations to grow her ovaries:
“I was swollen and in pain and it hurt to even sit straight up. It was awful. And then the recovery from that was hard.”
Yikes! At least the suffering was for a good cause!
