David Beador and his wife, Lesley, appear to be fighting for their marriage.

The ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Shannon Beador, has withdrawn his divorce petition only days after filing paperwork to end his 23-month-long marriage, according to an update shared by Lesley.

Lesley posted the news on her private Instagram Story on Wednesday. She said, “my husband filed a request for dismissal a few days ago.” 

Public records have not reflected the withdrawal, but a court rep told PEOPLE that there is a loose timeline for processing non-urgent requests. 

“Now back to your regular programming,” Lesley quipped on Instagram.

The businessman officially filed for divorce last week. 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. He was reportedly seeking joint physical and legal custody of their child. 

The couple went public with their relationship in January 2018 and got engaged in January 2020. David and Lesley revealed that they were expecting, six months later.

The former RHOC husband, who purportedly signed a prenup with his fiancée ahead of their October 2020 wedding, stated that he didn’t want to pay spousal support. 

David finalized his divorce from Shannon in 2019 after being married for almost two decades and living apart for two years.

Shannon was reportedly “blindsided” by David’s new romance, as they had split only four months earlier, in September 2017. David and Shannon share three daughters, Sophie, 21, and twins Stella and Adeline, 18.

Lesley, who has two children from a previous marriage, documented her relationship with David on Instagram, even posting nude couple pics in November 2019. 

Andy Cohen dubbed David the “Jackhole of the Day” on “Watch What Happens Live,” calling the photos the “worst thirst traps even seen.”

Shannon shared during a BravoCon appearance that their girls were “horrified” by the display after seeing it at school. 

David told a different story. 

“My kids called and we laughed at the selfies Lesley posted,” he told PEOPLE. “It’s amazing how much Shannon talks about me and my life. She needs some peanut butter to go with her jelly.”

Lesley later shared that David had popped the question, showing off her engagement ring in a selfie that featured David posing shirtless. 

“Yes, Lesley and I are excited to be engaged,” David later confirmed to PEOPLE.” We are celebrating in Miami and then going to the Super Bowl.”

Shannon revealed, during a March 2021 appearance on Jeff Lewis’ SiriusXM radio show, that she had tried to mend fences with David by sending a baby gift to the couple’s newborn, only to have the gift rejected by her ex’s new wife.
