Good thing the 'RHOC' is still filming season 15 as there is some big baby news for Shannon Storms Beador's family. I say "her family" because it impacts her three children, Stella, Adeline, and Sophie. Beador's ex-husband, David Beador and his fiancee, Lesley Cook are expecting their first child together, Cook confirmed via her private Instagram. The couple got engaged early this year with David telling PEOPLE of the happy news: "Yes, Lesley and I are excited to be engaged. We are celebrating in Miami and then going to the Super Bowl."
Beador, 55 and Cook, 36 have been together for over two years but it was his relationship with Storms Beador on 'RHOC' that made him a household name. David and Shannon joined the Bravo series during season nine but quickly faced troubles as they could not quite connect as a couple. She was extremely into leading an organic life, even having jewels put into her teeth for good Feng shui. She would not even give her kids cell phones due to radiation and made sure her house was free from any toxins. It was not too long before it came out that David cheated on Shannon but they worked very hard to fix their marriage and even renewed their vows.Unfortunately, rumors and unhappiness caused Shannon's weight to balloon out of control and despite all of their efforts, their marriage could never overcome the affair and the disconnect within. Eventually, the two divorced with David looking like the consummate bad guy (I was not in the relationship but I can honestly say Shannon's shrill voice and constant yelling would have sent me over the edge).
He found his happiness with Lesley while Shannon has been with her current boyfriend for a little over a year and is now the new OG of the 'RHOC' when it returns for its 15th season. David spoke to PEOPLE, once again, to confirm the happy news about his expanding family: "Lesley and I are excited to be expecting." And the news could not come at a more perfect time as the Beador's eldest daughter, Sophie, will be heading to college in the Fall. Lesley also has children, Andris and Inga. We wish them all the best for their expanding family and wonder if this will be mentioned in the new season at all. Should be interesting!
