David, 57, and Lesley, 38, have been married just under two years. The couple shares one child, a 19-month-old daughter, Anna Love.
David listed September 15 as the couple’s separation date and cited irreconcilable differences, according to court documents obtained by the outlet. He is reportedly seeking joint physical and legal custody of their child.
The former RHOC husband, who purportedly signed a prenup with Lesley ahead of their October 2020 nuptials, does not want to pay spousal report. David finalized his divorce from Shannon in 2019 after being married almost two decades and living apart for two years.
David and Lesley got engaged in January 2020. The duo revealed that they were expecting, six months later. Lesley shared a baby bump snap in July, writing—“You’re just a small bump.”
Bravo featured David and Shannon’s marital struggles over multiple RHOC seasons before the pair split for good. The exes publicly worked to recover from David’s admitted infidelity but were ultimately unsuccessful.
David and Shannon share three daughters, Sophie, 20, and 18-year-old twins, Stella and Adeline.
“After much thought and careful consideration, David and I have made the difficult decision to separate,” the RHOC star told Bravo TV at the time. “We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters. This is not the future we envisioned, and we kindly ask for privacy, especially for our children, during this transitional period.”
Shannon Beador spoke to People in 2018, one year after her split from David, sharing that she felt “stronger” standing on her own.
“Part of what I did after I separated with David — while staying home, not going out, and not doing much of anything — was I tried to self-reflect and figure out the changes I wanted to make in myself. What kind of person do I want to be?” the reality star said at the time.
“I wasn’t any rose to come home to at the end of my marriage,” Shannon continued “I was really reactive. And I needed to learn to take a step back, take in any potential criticism I might perceive about being negative, and really examine that.”
“There are so many people out there who go through so much worse times than me. I’ve got it good,” she said. “Fans will say to me from time to time that I inspire them but I don’t look at it that way. I’m willing and open to letting people in, and showing people all the difficulty that I’m going through — which isn’t easy, because people judge and criticize. But there are people going through way worse things. I’m inspired by so many other women that are standing on their own. It’s hard out there. And they encourage me.”
Shannon Beador has been dating boyfriend, John Janssen, since 2019.
