Shannon Beador is reportedly filing for full custody of her three daughters after announcing plans to divorce husband David at the end of last week.
According to a new report, the Real Housewives of Orange County star wants to be the primary caretaker of the three children she and David share, including 16-year-old Sophie and 13-year-old twins Stella and Adaline,
“Shannon is going after full custody of the girls and she is going to grant David visitation,” a source close to the family told Radar Online on November 2, adding, “There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that she will get it!”
As for how the girls feel about their mother potentially having full custody of them, the insider went on to reveal that the children couldn’t be happier about her alleged decision to file for full custody. The source also said that Sophia, Stella, and Adeline are reportedly thrilled that their mother finally got the courage to leave her husband because they “hated seeing her miserable.”
Shannon Beador’s three daughters are reportedly standing behind her as she moves forward with her split from David, who admitted to having a months-long affair during The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s 10th season, and are said to be doing whatever they can to make sure she is doing alright.
While Shannon Beador has not yet spoken out about her potential plans to fight for full custody, the Radar Online report went on to say that in addition to her custody request, the longtime reality star will likely be awarded with a large amount of both child and spousal support from her estranged husband.
Shannon Beador and David Beador went through hard times during Season 10 but during Season 11, their marriage appeared to take a turn in the right direction as they renewed their wedding vows in front of their co-stars and friends.
Since their split, David Beador has reportedly been dating multiple women.
