After a long struggle to get pregnant, everyone was rooting for this former Real Housewives of Orange County star to have a smooth and uncomplicated pregnancy. Now that she’s finally given birth to twins, she can sit back and relax (well, maybe for a total of five minutes at a time for the next eighteen years).
“They Made It”
Well, congratulations are in order for one Real Housewives of Orange County alum! Meghan King Edmonds is doubling down on diapers, pacifiers, and basically anything else a baby requires as she gave birth to two baby boys earlier this week.
The new mom carried to full term (which is difficult to do with twins!) and wrote on Instagram that she planned to do “another natural (drug-free) vaginal birth.”
“I’m not scared at all! In fact I can’t wait!” she added.
Her husband, Jim Edmonds, announced the exciting news on his Instagram Story in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday, June 6, showing his arm with two small ink footprints.
“[One] little foot each,” he wrote on the picture, before adding, “They made it. Everyone is safe an healthy.”
Okay, so we know they each have at least one foot.
More interestingly, he went on to say, “Pictures will come soon.”
Fans celebrated online, tweeting out their excitement for the new mom.
“This is wonderful news I saw Jims instagram with their tiny footprints on his arm,” wrote one follower. “Congrats to them!”
“Glowing and Beautiful and Thankful”
Obviously excited about her pregnancy, Meghan officially announced it to fans and followers way back in December with a photo of her, Jim, their baby daughter Aspen, and their dog, along with a sign that said, “Our family is growing by four feet and two heartbeats.”
How freaking cute, you guys.
She since shared tons more photos of pregnancy, showcasing her baby bump the whole way. However, the new mom did get some flack back in the February for one particular photo, where she posed in a bikini, with the caption “Breakfast in bed, yoga, then spa and swim day @ranchovalencia?! Yes please!”
“Give me a break. Breakfast in bed . . . spa . . . yoga . . . and swim day . . . Are you kidding me??? Most women are working a mindless 9 to 5 job for barely any pay . . . and going home to feed their other kids without an assistant and nanny,” commented one angry follower, because apparently if one mom does it, probably Meghan has to do it too. That’s just the way of the world, apparently.
Several others commented on her slim appearance, with one troll even asking, “You eating?”
Of course, there were fans that were quick to come to her defense, pointing out that pregnancy hadn’t exactly been an easy process for the television personality.
“She is glowing and beautiful and thankful — and has been through a lot. Don’t be a hater,” a fan replied.
Her love of pregnancy photos also gave birth to one of our favorite celebrity tributes of all times. Meghan did an absolutely hilarious photo shoot where she recreated Beyoncé’s now famous twin pregnancy announcement photo, complete with the veil and floral backdrop.
“If I can’t be Queen Bey I’ll settle for King Edmonds,” the 33-year-old joked in the caption, adding the hashtags #twinscomingsoon, #imitationisflattery, and #thisIsNotMyMaternityShoot.
FYI, Beyoncé’s twins are also Geminis. Was it coincidence, or written in the stars? Or you know, maybe that’s why Meghan did the photo shoot in the first place. Either way, we’re obsessed with all of it.
Back in April, she was also the guest of honor for baby “sprinkle” (which sounds a little weirder than a baby shower, but okay).
The party was decorated with blue baloones, blue and yellow floral arrangements, and blue macarons and champagne with lables that read “ready to pop.” How absolutely Instagramable is that?
