Kara Keough Bosworth, daughter of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough, is no stranger to tragedy. In May 2020, she announced on Instagram that her father, Matt Keough, a former pitcher for the Oakland Athletics, died at age 64.
The heartbreaking news came less than four weeks after Kara lost her child during delivery. The reality star and her husband, former soccer pro Kyle Bosworth, revealed that their son died in an Instagram post in April 2020.
“On April 6, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10 am”, she said. “Weighing 11 pounds, 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection). During the course of her birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord. He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his loving sister, and those who received their life-saving gifts.”
McCoy’s organs and tissues were donated. “Through him, may others find new hope and deep healing,” Kara wrote.
Kara posted another candid message on Instagram in the wake of her father’s death. “Dad, please take care of my son. Show him the circle change and how to find friends forever. Now you are a grandfather in the sky.”
Kara and Kyle also have a daughter, Decker Kate, born in January 2016 according to People. Let’s take a closer look at the untold truth of a woman who rose to fame for her reality television connections and now shines for her incredible endurance and grace.
Kara Keough Bosworth had a unique childhood
Kara Keough Bosworth is one of three children from The Real Housewives of Orange County, alongside Jeana Keough and baseball pitcher Matt Keough. According to People, Jeana and Matt were married in 1984, but it was about 16 years apart before she signed the divorce papers in 2019.
“I had been asking for years [for a divorce] and I felt I was well enough to let it go,” said Jeana at the time. She had claimed that “she was not the same person” after an injury in 1992.
Kara revealed that her parents spent a lot of time apart when she was little. In an RHOC episode, she shared a glimpse of her childhood. “My dad traveled a lot and my mom was always working, so nobody was really home when we got back from school,” Kara recalled. “It was good to have the dogs there; a familiar face to return home”.
Our condolences to Kara and the entire family as they face these heartbreaking losses.
