The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

David Beador Is Expecting His First Child With Fiancée Lesley Cook

Shannon Beador’s ex-husband David Beador is expecting his first child with fiancée Lesley Cook, 36.

The former Real Housewives of Orange County husband confirmed this shocking news to PEOPLE a day after Lesley hinted about being pregnant on social media.

On Instagram, Lesley posted about having a bun in the oven, writing, “You’re just a small bump” alongside a photo on an actual bun in an oven.

“Lesley and I are excited to be expecting,” David, 55, tells PEOPLE.

This baby will be Lesley’s third child and David’s fourth. David shares three teenage daughters twins Stella and Adeline, 16, and Sophie, 19 with ex-wife Shannon.

David and Lesley, who have been dating since late 2017, got engaged in January 2020.

Lesley gushed about their engagement on Instagram, writing, “Looking forward to eternity with my love. I LOVE YOU LOVE!!!” while sharing a photo of her very sizeable engagement ring.

David later confirmed the happy news to PEOPLE, saying, “Yes, Lesley and I are excited to be engaged. We are celebrating in Miami and then going to the Super Bowl.”

As many RHOC fans know, David and Shannon split in September 2017 after 17 years of marriage. Their relationship had many ups and downs, which was documented on RHOC. During season 10, it was revealed that David had an affair. The two attempted to fix their marriage and even renewed their vows but ultimately went their separate ways.

Since then, Shannon has moved on and is currently dating John Janssen. The two just celebrated one year together.

Shannon has yet to comment on David and Lesley’s baby news publicly.

The Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in late 2020.
