RHOC's Kara Bosworth Has Happy News To Share

Kara Bosworth is counting her blessings this Easter. Last holiday, the daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough endured one of the most tragic losses of her life when her newborn son died during childbirth. The reality TV personality revealed the devastating news on Instagram.

"On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10 a.m. Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection)," penned Kara, who shares daughter Decker with her husband, former American football linebacker Kyle Bosworth. However, "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," Kara continued, adding the message she wrote "for the organ/tissue procurement team to read out" in McCoy's honor. "May his legacy shine in the form of lifetimes aplenty – lives filled with laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all, gratitude."

Since McCoy's tragic death, Kara and her husband — who married in 2014 — have experienced the "deepest pain" they've ever felt, the Pushover Project blogger wrote on Instagram in July 2020. Though the days feel like there's a "gaping hole" since losing McCoy last Easter, Kara has some exciting news to share this year. Keep scrolling to find out. 

Kara Bosworth is pregnant one year after losing son McCoy

Just one year after suffering the death of her son McCoy during childbirth, Kara Bosworth announced she and her husband, Kyle Bosworth, are expecting. The Real Housewives of Orange County personality revealed her pregnancy on Easter, noting the news of her little one has given her family "renewed hope."

"For Christians, for Jews, and for me, this time is a reminder of the death of firstborn sons. Sacrifice. Suffering. Mourning. Grief," she wrote next to photos of an Easter basket that featured a baby onesie on April 4, 2021. "Why is this night different than other nights? 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."

"This Easter is decidedly better," Kara penned. "Despite that wretched Easter night, I can't ignore that this day also represents rebirth. Renewed hope. 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."

With their third child on the way, Kara and Kyle are looking forward to "the dawn of something beautiful and restorative," she added. "We miss you, Mack-a-doodle. Thank you for sending us this sacred gift. You're a big brother!" Congratulations to Kara's beautiful brood.
