Meghan King Edmonds took to social media on Saturday (26 November) to share the first photo of her newborn and spoke about her supportive husband Jim Edmonds. The Real Housewives of Orange County star, who gave birth to a baby girl on Thanksgiving, said that she now feels like "the strongest warrior on the planet" after the natural birth of her daughter Aspen.
The first-time mother posted an image of her baby girl on Instagram along with a long message detailing the birth and praised Jim for taking care of her following 22 hours of labour.
"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," the 32-year-old captioned the image.
"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," she wrote.
"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 :)"
On Friday, Meghan had posted a photo of her pet dog Girly Girl with a note that read, "Happy Thanksgiving Mommy! I can't wait to meet my new sister!"
Meghan also shared a photo of her baby with their pet. "Puppy and baby in love already @therealgirlygirl," Meghan captioned the photo.
