It was a baby or bust for Real Housewives of Orange County’s Meghan King Edmonds.
The reality sophomore told People that she gave her husband, Jim Edmonds, an ultimatum — hand over his sperm, or lose her forever. Meghan admitted that she threatened to leave her sportscaster husband, if he refused to unfreeze his pre-vasectomy sperm.
“I think I said ‘Baby, or no me at all,” Meghan told People. ‘Me or nothing.’
The couple is now expecting a little girl, after a successful IVF fertility treatment.
Jim, 46, is the father of four children, from two previous marriages. He has two daughters with his late first wife, LeAnn Horton — Lauren, 22, and Hayley, 18, and a son, Landon, 10, and a daughter Sutton, 7, with second wife, Allison Jayne Raski.
The former baseball star has been checked-out of the fertility process on the show, and many viewers have nailed Jim’s disinterest to a forced hand. Meghan, 31, has officially confirmed fan suspicions, her real-time confession mingling with whines for attention on the show.
Jim is over having kids, and Meghan can only wait and hope that he will muster up enough enthusiasm to pull off being an involved father of five. Do you think he will pull it off?
