Real Housewife Kim Richards is now the proud grandma of a baby boy named Hucksley, E! News reports. Kim’s daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn, gave birth earlier this week.
Kim Richards, one of the most controversial ladies starring in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally gotten some positive key-words attached to her name in the media: grandmother, baby boy and thrill.
Richard’s eldest daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn, gave birth to her first baby, on Wednesday evening. 30-year-old Wiederhorn married her husband, Thayer, 31, in May 2015. As early as the beginning of the weekend, Brooke posted on Instagram a couple of photos of the little guy: first alone, sleeping in his maternity bed at the hospital (we’re guessing), then sleeping again, but this time, in daddy’s arms. The photo also features the baby’s competition: a fawn French bulldog, that cuddles under Thayer’s arm. Brooke captures this photo: “PERFECT Saturday morning waking up at home as a family”.
Kim has also shared a few photos of her first grandchild of whom she says: “I can’t stop looking at this face…. ? I am so in love? God has truly blessed our family! I love you❤️Hucksley! I am proud Grandma!”
It is truly a blessed time for Kim Richards, who has been going through a lot these past couple of years. She is known to have been battling alcohol addiction and has checked into rehab several times. She relapsed every time. This hit a peak point last year in April, when she was arrested for trespassing, public intoxication and resisting arrest. In August, she was again arrested for shopliftin in Los Angeles. And in January this year, her first husband and father of Brooke, Monty Brinson, passed away of cancer. Richards and Brinson had a close relationship and she was devastated after his death.
Months after, her dark days became shinier, when in April daughter Brooke gave her the best news: that she was going to be a grandma for the first time!
