Brandi Redmond Reveals How Her Daughters Welcomed Their Baby Brother Bruin After Adoption!

As previously reported, The Real Housewives of Dallas couple Brandi and Bryan Redmond expanded their family this past winter, welcoming their infant baby boy Bruin Charles— who was born Dec. 31 — via a closed adoption.

Brandi reveals that prior to adopting their son, she and Bryan made sure their daughters Brooklyn and Brinkley’s approved the idea of explain their family.

“We wanted them to be part of the process and the decision,” Brandi told PEOPLE.

Brandi reveals she and her husband Bryan came up with a unique way to make sure Brooklyn and Brinkley’s wants and feelings were considered.

“We sat them down and sent through the good, the bad, and the ugly about having a baby sibling and about what that meant,” Brandi recalls. “And afterwards, everyone wrote down either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and any hesitations they had on a piece of paper. And then Bryan read out what they were so we could discuss them as a group.”

The Bravo reality star admits she was shocked to see “there were no hesitations from anyone” about it. “They were just like, ‘Yay, we’re going to have another boy in the family!’ Brandi explains. “Everything was positive. And after my husband read them all, I just started bawling.”

“I’m getting emotional just thinking about it and talking about it,” she adds, choking up with tears. “But yeah, it was beautiful.”

Since bringing Bruin home, Brandi says her two daughters Brooklyn and Brinkley have been excellent big sisters.

“They are so excited,” told PEOPLE. “Bruin was in the NICU because he was born prematurely, and we FaceTimed them from the hospital so they could see him.”

As Brandi explains, “We were planning on bringing them to meet him after that and they were like, ‘Just bring him home, Mommy!’ ”
