Kara Keough Bosworth, daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough, is no stranger to tragedy. In May 2020, she announced on Instagram that her father, Matt Keough, a former pitcher with the Oakland Athletics, died at age 64 (via People).

The heartbreaking news came less than four weeks after Kara lost her son during childbirth. The reality star and her husband, former football pro Kyle Bosworth, revealed that their son died in an Instagram post in April 2020. "On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am," she said. "Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection). During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord. He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts." McCoy's organs and tissues were donated. "Through him, may others find new hope and profound healing," Kara wrote. 

Kara posted another heartfelt message on Instagram in the wake of her father's death. "Daddy, please take care of my son. Teach him the circle changeup and how to find forever friends. You're on grandpa duty in heaven now."

Kara and Kyle also have a daughter, Decker Kate, born in January 2016 according to People. Let's take a closer look at the untold truth of a woman who rose to fame for her reality TV connections and now shines for her incredible resiliency and grace.

Kara Keough Bosworth had a unique childhood

Kara Keough Bosworth is one of three kids shared by The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough and baseball pitcher Matt Keough. According to People, Jeana and Matt wed in 1984, but spent about 16 years separated before she signed divorce papers in 2019. "He had been asking for years [for a divorce] and I felt he was well enough to let him go," Jeana said at the time. She had claimed that "he was not the same person" after an injury in 1992. "I wanted to be there for him, if he didn't have a voice, I wanted to give him a voice," she said.

Kara revealed that her parents spent a lot of time apart when she was growing up. On an episode of RHOC, she shared a glimpse of her childhood. "My dad was on the road a lot and my mom was always working, so no one was really home when we got back from school," Kara recalled. "It was good to have the dogs there; a familiar face to come home to."

Our condolences to Kara and to the entire family as they grapple with these heartbreaking losses.
