Meghan King Edmonds and Jim Edmonds Jet off to Mexico Kids Free

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King Edmonds has built up the courage to leave her three children for some much-needed one on one time with retired baseball hubby Jim Edmonds, 48.

Meghan revealed this is the couple’s first getaway since welcoming their three kiddos Aspen, 23 months, and 4-month old twin boys Hayes and Hart. The reality star admitted in a blog post that she’s taking a vacation “because our marriage needs it.”

Family first

A post shared by Meghan King Edmonds (@meghankedmonds) on

The 34-year-old TV personality wrote an honest and candid post revealing, “we’ve become complacent in our lives and have taken each other for granted.” Meghan went on to reveal this is she and Jim’s first vacation since before their eldest child Aspen was born well over two years ago.  “When I think about it, it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long – we’ll always have more time to do what we want.  But life is short and we are seizing the moment!” Edmonds wrote.

Like a lot of marriages, the mom of three admits that her marriage has taken a back seat to raising her children and the foundation of her marriage is suffering.

Meghan continued, “Our marriage needs it. We’ve had three babies in under two years.  We’re building a house, we’ve sold and moved homes numerous times, we’ve quit jobs and started new ones. We are constant fixtures in our marriage that are often ignored and we need shining and buffing.  We need US back… and the sad part is that we never even realized “we” were missing.”

Meghan King Edmonds admitted she is “anxious” about leaving her three kids behind in California but is looking forward to a romantic vacation with just she and her hubby. “Most of all I’m looking forward to hanging out with my husband and not worrying about when the babies need to eat next or who has gas or why one hasn’t pooped.”

Edmonds realizes that not everyone is able to pick up and fly to Mexico for some R&R. She suggested a couple savvy options to her fans that can still benefit you and your spouse that desperately need some alone time but can’t afford a vacation. Meghan suggests, “a staycation at a local hotel or a very special date like a picnic in the park without cell phones.”

Edmonds ended her blog post by encouraging all the fellow mamas out there to “nourish yourself in whatever way you need. Whatever you can do, just do it, your marriage and former self will thank you a thousand times over.”

Hoda Kotb Reveals ‘I Understand Why I’m On Earth’

Hoda Kotb Reveals ‘I Understand Why I’m On Earth’ Since Becoming a Mother

Hoda Kotb, 54, had it all, a rising career on the Today show, her loving longtime partner Joel Schiffman, and a network of loving and supportive friends. But something was still missing for the co-anchor and it kept gnawing at Kotb, she wanted so dearly to be a mother.

Already into her 50’s, she felt that window of opportunity had closed for her. Thanks to actress Sandra Bullock for inspiration, Hoda dove into the adoption process and in doing so she welcomed her daughter Hailey in 2017 who is now 17-months old.

Today!

A post shared by Hoda Kotb (@hodakotb) on

“I was at a point where things were not in my favor,” she recalls. “Every time I had a pang like, ‘I wish I could,’ I pushed it away. I felt if she could do it, it could be done, she says of Bullock.All of a sudden, I thought, ‘Why not me?’” confesses the host of NBC’s Today. “I wanted it to go from a dream, a wish, a prayer to a reality.

Hoda now has inspired people from all over who thought their hopes of having a family was no longer an option. She admits she is moved to tears when others like her approach her on the street and thank her for being a vision for a dream they had given up on. One of the best things is when people come up and say, “I’m adopting. I thought it was too late for me, too.” I’m moved to tears. I’ve made so many choices but none was more important or monumental. It’s the best one and I just saved it for later in my life.

It wasn’t until Hoda Kotb became a mother that she realized her true calling in life. Always work driven, she found her purpose in life through her work but that all has changed for the mother since adopting Hailey. “My whole life, my career has been riding shotgun with me. But now, with Haley, it feels like, for the first time, I can see clearly. I understand my purpose. I understand why I’m on this earth. All of a sudden, the most exciting part of the day is after work when I’m holding her. Not when I’m interviewing someone, even if it’s Beyoncé!

❤️

Hoda admits being an older parent comes with different concerns than a younger parent may have and one of them is her concern that Hailey won’t be alone when she gets older.

She goes on to reveal that adopting a second time around isn’t off the table. “Never say never. I don’t want Haley to ever be by herself. When you’re an older parent, you think about those things more than you would if you were in your 20s. I always say, if it’s meant to be, it’ll just happen. I’ll just put it out in the universe and see what happens.

Michael Buble and Wife Luisana Lopilato Welcome Baby No. 3

She’s here! Michael Buble’s new gal pal has arrived. The singer’s wife, Luisana Lopilato, announced via Instagram on Thursday, July 26, that she gave birth to the couple’s third child, a baby girl.

Lopilato shared a black and white photo of her daughter’s hand that still has her hospital bracelet on.

Writing alongside the post, the new mother gushed, How to explain that our heart explodes with love? That there’s not enough hours in a day to think about it. I thank God for making us this gift of life and happiness! Because looking in her eyes is looking at heaven itself!” she wrote in her native Spanish alongside a black-and-white photo of the baby girl’s hand. “We love you to infinity and beyond. We waited for you not only to grow as a family … you gave us light, hope, you are and will be our souls’ life.”

Buble, 42, and Lopilato, 31, announced back in February that they were expecting for the third time. The couple is also parents to sons Noah, 4, and Elias, 2. Buble confirmed in an interview for Ireland’s Today FM Radio’s The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on July 2 that his newest addition would be a little girl.

“I got my first little girl coming in three weeks, and I’ve actually never said that before in public. I’ve got a daughter coming,” he said.

The couple’s newest member isn’t the only cause for celebration for the family. Nearly two years ago their eldest son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer. Buble and his wife both put their careers on hold to focus on their son’s treatment. At the time, the four-time Grammy winner wrote a statement on his Facebook page asking for privacy for his family during their difficult time.

“At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends, and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

The following February Michael broke his silence about his son’s prognosis saying Noah was “progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future.”

There is so much to celebrate for Micahel and his family. Congrats on your baby girl!
