Kara Keough Bosworth and her husband Kyle Bosworth are expecting their third child.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum announced the happy news on Easter Sunday. This news comes nearly a year after the death of their newborn son, McCoy Casey Bosworth, who died of “shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord” during birth.
“For Christians, for Jews, and for me, this time is a reminder of the death of firstborn sons. Sacrifice. Suffering. Mourning. Grief,” the 32-year-old wrote on Instagram.
“Last Easter was the worst night of my life. We held our firstborn son in our arms as he took his final breaths. We spent time in the hell that is watching your child die,” she added. “This Easter is decidedly better. Despite that wretched Easter night, I can’t ignore that this day also represents rebirth. Renewed hope.”
She continued, “It is said that the word ‘Easter’ is derived from the goddess Eostre. Eostre, the goddess of fertility, symbolizes the birth of new life and the dawn of spring. And so it is for us.”
The message was accompanied by a photo of an Easter basket with a rainbow onesie for their new baby. Also, inside the basket was a sign that read: “I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born.”
Kara also shared photos of Easter baskets for McCoy and her 5-year-old daughter Decker, who in one photo posed smiling with all the baskets.
To close out her touching post, Kara also paid tribute to her late father, Matt Keough, who died weeks after his grandson.
“We miss you, Mack-a-doodle. Thank you for sending us this sacred gift. You’re a big brother! Tell Grandpa that I said he was right. He’ll know what I mean,” she concluded.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
