Kara Bosworth has acknowledged the tragic loss of her son McCoy one month after his birth.
The 32-year-old shared a heartbreaking tribute to her boy on Instagram, along with a photo of her husband Kyle Bosworth touching his forehead to McCoy’s.
‘You would have been 1 month old today,’ began Kara’s caption.

The heart-rending message continued, ‘Your baby acne would be gearing up. You would be getting the hang of pacifiers, sorting out your days and nights, and figuring out how to focus your eyes without them involuntarily crossing.’
‘I would have already bought a complete boy’s wardrobe since Decker’s old clothes weren’t really as unisex as I thought. Your dad would be insisting that babies don’t need shoes, but he’d change his mind when he saw the little kicks paired with your chubby cankles.’
‘You’d be taking your first naps in the crib, and I’d be fussing about “the schedule.” I’d be realizing that you, just like your sister, prefer Lefty and I’d be pumping Righty to try to bring ‘er up to speed.
‘Decker would want to be holding you all the time, but you’d prefer to be spending your day wrapped around my chest. At least that much is still how it is, my sweet Mack. Decker still wishes she could hold you more. And I still wear you on my heart all day.’
‘We miss you like crazy, baby.’

‘Until we see you again’: Kara revealed her son McCoy died last month in childbirth from shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord
McCoy tragically passed away on April 6 during an intense labor.
The daughter of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough shared the tragic news earlier this month that she had lost her son.
‘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.’
Shoulder dystocia is a birth injury that happens when one or both of a baby’s shoulders get stuck inside the mother’s pelvis during labor. In the majority of cases the baby is born safely.

Kara shared the news in a moving Instagram post with multiple photos of her father.
‘Daddy, please take care of my son,’ she wrote. ‘Teach him the circle changeup and how to find forever friends. You’re on grandpa duty in heaven now.’

Despite being legally separated from Jeana, Matt continued to live with her in the early RHOC seasons.
He was sentenced to a year in jail after getting a second DUI in 2010, and his ex appeared in court to plead for a probation sentence instead.
The reality star revealed that they finalized their divorce last year after more than a decade of delays.

Matt was best known for playing six years for the Oakland Athletics in the late-1970s and early-’80s as a right-handed pitcher. The team announced his death on Saturday.
‘Matt was a great baseball man and a proud Oakland A,’ said Executive Vice President of baseball operations Billy Beane in a statement. ‘He had an incredible passion for the game and we were lucky to have him and his wealth of knowledge alongside us for the years he worked as a special assistant.’
Following his first run in Oakland, he had short stints with the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros, though injuries derailed his playing career in the late-’80s and early-1990s.
