Real Housewives of Orange County alum Kara Keough Bosworth just did what every mother silently dreads.
She brought the ashes of her late son home, to finally rest in peace.
“Welcome home, baby boy,” she wrote on Instagram on Monday (April 20) alongside a picture of a beautiful bouquet of flowers along with a little box topped with a figurine of a mother, father and a baby.
Earlier this month, Bosworth and her husband Kyle lost their baby boy, which they named McCoy Casey Bosworth on April 6, just six days after his birth. His death was due to serious complications from childbirth, including shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.
“On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am,” she wrote in an Instagram post last week. “Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection). During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.”
As the pain continues for this young family, Bosworth continues to receive condolences and well wishes from family and friends.
“Oh Kara, this breaks my heart,” commented Vicki Gunvalson, who appeared on the Bravo reality television series alongside Bosworth and her mother Jeana Keough in years past. “Been thinking about you and so proud of your strength. Peace be with you and Kyle.”
We share in those touching sentiments during this painful time.

On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am. Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection). During the course of his 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 adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts. I wrote this for the organ/tissue procurement team to read out in his honor: “Tonight, we join together to honor this little savior’s gifts of life. Through him, may others find new hope and profound healing… and may he live again through them. May his legacy shine in the form of lifetimes aplenty – lives filled with laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all gratitude. May it be said that McCoy Casey Bosworth left this world in a better place, for a better place…. that he made an impact… that he was an answered prayer… that he was a hero. May angels lead him in. Thank you, McCoy.” ——————————————— And Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:20 Until we see you again… We love you, McCoy.
