Meghan King Edmonds and her husband, Jim Edmonds, are facing rumors of divorce and marital troubles as the Real Housewives of Orange County star prepares for the birth of her first child later this year.
As the 11th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County plays out on Bravo, Meghan King Edmonds continues to express her frustrations with Jim, who hasn’t been nearly as involved in the process of in-vitro fertilization as she would have liked.
“He is definitely checked out and she doesn’t know what to do,” a source close to Meghan King Edmonds explained to Radar Online on July 28. “She’s pushing and he’s pulling away.”
Meghan King Edmonds’ husband underwent a vasectomy years ago so when it came to starting a family of their own, the reality star was forced to look into other options and decided to move forward with in-vitro fertilization around the time The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 began filming.

“Obviously he just doesn’t seem excited about having another kid,” the insider said.
“He was done having kids,” the insider added, explaining his decision for a vasectomy. “He told everybody that.”
As divorce rumors continue to swirl, Meghan King Edmonds insists her husband is excited to be starting a family with her, but at the same time, she’s admitted to being disappointed by his lack of sentiment.
“It is really frustrating to me that Jimmy doesn’t act more interested in the IVF process, especially considering that it has consumed my life,” Meghan King Edmonds confessed in a blog entry earlier this month. “I understand that it can be an overwhelming process and he had to be in Florida for spring training during most of it, but I was on a lot of hormones and was very emotional. It definitely would’ve been nice to have him pay more attention to the process.”

Meghan King Edmonds and husband Jim tied the knot in 2014 and months later, she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 10.
At the end of last month, Meghan King Edmonds opened up about the early moments of her pregnancy during an interview with People Magazine.
“I was feeling a little bit nauseous around week 8 and just really tired,” Edmonds said. “It was just weird, I felt a little bit sad. I think my hormones were just going crazy, haywire. I was happy I was pregnant, but I was sad about everything else.”
Because of the hormones she was on, Meghan King Edmonds went through highs and lows during the early stages of her pregnancy, but luckily, she’s been doing better in recent weeks and revealed that her baby likes pizza and ice cream.
“After I hit about week 10, I started feeling better and better and now I’m great,” she said. “I’m happy, I feel good, I have energy — everything is great!”
As for the rumors regarding the possible end of her marriage to Jim, Meghan King Edmonds recently spoke out, denying she and Jim were headed for a breakup.
“I wouldn’t be having a baby and building a life together if we were in a bad place,” Meghan King Edmonds explained during a chat with Real Mr. Housewife on July 26.
