RHOC's Kara Keough honors late son McCoy with a flower garden after newborn died at just six days old last year
REAL Housewives of Orange County star Kara Keough has shown fans the beautiful flower garden built in memory of her late son McCoy.
Kara, 32, and husband Kyle Bosworth, 34, tragically lost their baby boy when he was just six days old following a difficult labor in April last year.
The Bravo star and Kyle were left utterly devastated by McCoy's death and she often shares poignant messages, photos and tributes for her son on social media.
In a new post, Kara has given fans a look at "McCoy's Garden", which was made in the tot's memory.
A photo, which was taken just five days after McCoy's passing in April 2020, shows Kara patting some soil while planting pretty red and white flowers.
Two children can be seen standing alongside the grieving mom as she carefully tended to the plot, built in honor of her late son.
Kara – whose mother is former RHOC star Jeana Keough – and her husband Kyle are also parents to four-year-old daughter Decker.
The reality star shared their tragic news of McCoy's passing on Instagram shortly after his death.
At the time, she told her followers: "On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am. Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection)."
She explained: "During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord."
Kara and Kyle found this Christmas especially hard to cope with, as it should have been McCoy's first one with his parents and big sister.
In a poignant black and white picture, the RHOC star had laid out McCoy's unopened stocking along with several angel ornaments and sweet baby books.
Writing alongside it on Christmas Day, Kara admitted: "Woke up without you today on Christmas morning.
"Your sister slept in until 8:30, which would have been magical had I not been up crying since 7:30 thinking about how – had you lived – different my day would have looked. How I would have already been up at 6:30 enjoying the best part of your day with you.
Baby Mornings are the cure to exhaustion, with those happy noises and bright eyes and that tiny human morning smell."
Kara went on to note all the heartbreaking moments she never got to enjoy with her little boy.
"By the time your sister woke up today, I would have nursed you, fed you solids, cleaned up the chaos of your meal, and been contemplating the timing of your first nap of the day in conjunction with present-opening," she reflected.
"Instead, we were missing you. Your stocking was filled but there were no gifts addressed to you. No you grabbing ornaments instead of toys. No you pulling yourself up onto boxes to peer inside. No you using 2 bottom teeth to eat 'Christmas Eggs'.
"No you to crawl towards your sister’s Barbie Airplane as she screams 'Mommmmm, get McCoy!' No you to pass around the table at dinner so we each had the chance to use a fork and knife.
"No you in your Christmas jammies tucked in after a long but joyful day. No you. It seems that the quiet morning was just day breaking on our truth for this Christmas and for every Christmas from now on: There’s someone missing. Merry First Christmas, Baby. I’m so sorry that you’re not here for it."
Kara and Kyle married in 2014. Soon after McCoy's death, Kara had his initial tattooed on her arm. She also has teddy bear weighing the same as her late newborn son.
