Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz. From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband, he didn't leave my side. I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn't do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours. I am so proud and impressed of the team we made to welcome Aspen, our bond is more unshakable than I ever imagined. We have a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up! I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too) her birthdate 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy's baseball number 15 :) 1+1+2+4+1+6=15 #secondsold #needlefree #naturalbirth #22hoursoflabor #aspenkingedmonds #thanksgivingbaby #inlove #cantstopstaring #birthplanwentasplanned #fullheadofblackhair #warriorbaby -------------------- We are deliriously in love with our perfect Aspen πŸ’•πŸ’—

It's been a long road for Real Housewives of Orange County's Meghan Edmonds -- from IVF to an absent husband, the reality start finally reached the end of her fertility journey Thursday -- Thanksgiving Day -- when she and her pro-baseball hubby Jim Edmonds welcomed their daughter Aspen King Edmonds.

This is the first child for the couple, who married in October 2014; Jim has four children from two previous marriages.

Current state: under pressure and not giving any πŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ’•
