As fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County have long noted, Meghan Edmonds seems to be moving through her pregnancy process without her husband Jim. Whether through RHOC‘s editing or his genuine nature, he came off as disinterested in her IVF treatments and far less excited than his wife about the prospect of a child. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with bringing a baby into this world by yourself. But when you do have a partner, it’s a surprise to see the milestones of pregnancy still celebrated alone.
As Reality Tea points out, Edmonds took to Instagram to announce that she had completed her birth plan. “What’s better than having your doula as your good friend and having a birth planning sesh with our babies in Vegas! Love you @jackieonelson! #imacontrolfreak #cantwaitforlabor #noneedlesneeded,” she wrote. What a sweet, celebratory post. The question remains: Where is Mr. Edmonds?
If something has happened in their relationship, it’s not like the Housewives to keep things a secret. Even though Real Housewives of New York has ceased filming for the season, Jules Wainstein has spoken about her split from husband Michael in the press. Now, fans are watching the season with the knowledge of hindsight. Will we see a similar pattern for Jim and Meghan? With a baby on the way, we hope not — but someone’s got to step up to the plate.
