'RHOC' Star Kara Keough Posts Touching Tribute to Her Newborn Son Weeks After He Passed Away
On April 14, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Kara Keough shared that her newborn son, McCoy Casey Bosworth, passed away days after she gave birth.
When he was born on April 6, McCoy experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord. While a compressed umbilical cord can reduce the flow of nutrients, oxygen, and blood to a baby, Kara didn’t directly connect that to this tragic loss. When she and her husband, Kyle Bosworth, chose to share this news with their followers, they announced they donated McCoy’s organs and tissue to other kids who could benefit from them.
Last week, Kara and Kyle brought home McCoy’s ashes, and on Monday, she posted a photo of her and Kyle holding McCoy. Alongside the photo, she wrote, “You would have been 3 weeks old today. You would be ‘waking up’ and showing us more of you. I would be getting the hang of being a mom of two.” Kara went on to detail what the first three weeks with McCoy would’ve been like for their family, with their daughter “asking questions about your belly button.”

You would have been 3 weeks old today. You would be “waking up” and showing us more of you. I would be getting the hang of being a mom of two. My milk would be regulating to your schedule. Your sister would be asking questions about your belly button and you would have peed on her at least once by now. Daddy would be sending texts to his football buddies about how our giant baby boy could probably already out-lift them. We would be laughing that you never fit into newborn diapers, not even for one day. I’d be exhausted, leaking, and happy. Instead… we’re missing you. To all my fellow “instead” mamas…. thank you for reminding me that we’re not alone, and that we can survive this. He didn’t, but we have to. And we will.
She went on to add, “We would be laughing that you never fit into newborn diapers, not even for one day. I’d be exhausted, leaking, and happy,” before writing, “Instead… we’re missing you.”
Kara then took the time to thank all the “instead mamas” who have shown her support throughout this difficult time. “To all my fellow ‘instead’ mamas….thank you for reminding me that we’re not alone, and that we can survive this,” she wrote. “He didn’t, but we have to. And we will.”
