Jeana Keough Reveals How Her Daughter Kara’s Been Coping After The Tragic Death Of Newborn Son McCoy! Kara Keough And Husband Kyle Bosworth Open Up About Final Moments With Late Son!

Jeana Keough reveals how her daughter Kara Keough and her family have been coping with the tragic death of her newborn son McCoy, who died due to childbirth complications in April. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum admitted that they’re all “taking it badly” and “suffering” and trying to find “a new normal.”

“She’s reached out to a lot of friends. She’s reached out to people who’ve lost children,” Jeana told HollywoodLife. “Morgan Beck, Bode Miller‘s wife, lost a baby, an 18-month-old to a swimming accident. She and Kara were close throughout all of that and Morgan was one of the first to reach out to her this time. And a lot of women that have lost children for different reasons have reached out to her. So that’s been great.”

The family also suffered another loss, the death of Jeana's ex-husband Matt Keough, who is the father of her three children, daughter Kara and sons Sane and Colton.

“You know what to lose a grandchild and an ex husband in less than three weeks — it’s been rough,” she said. Matt, who was known as a professional baseball player who had played for the Oakland Athletics.

Meanwhile, Kara and her husband Kyle Bosworth described their son McCoy’s birth one month after the infant died during childbirth.

“We want his life to mean as much to as many people as possible and to let all of the positive ripples of his life be there,” she said during a virtual Good Morning America appearance on Monday, May 11, in her first interview since the tragedy.

While her initial plan was to labor at home, then leave for the hospital at “push time,” she decided to “take that burden off the healthcare system” and deliver at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m sitting there thinking, ‘What if I spiked a fever because that’s sometimes a normal part of giving birth and then I get my baby taken from me?'” Jeana Keough’s daughter explained. “The irony now looking back is I don’t have my baby now, but the fear of all that compounded so much.”

McCoy’s head came out “really quickly,” the California native revealed, but he experienced shoulder dystocia, which is when a baby’s shoulders are stuck inside a woman’s pelvis. The newborn emerged with the help of a doula and midwife, then was rushed to the hospital since his pulse couldn’t be found.

After being without oxygen and a heart rate for 45 minutes, the newborn suffered severe brain trauma and was put on a ventilator for 72 hours. His condition did not improve.

Keough, Bosworth, and their 4-year-old daughter, Decker, spent time with McCoy before his death. “We’re really glad that we got to meet him and got to know him,” she said.
