Following this week’s confirmation of David’s fiancee Lesley Cook‘s pregnancy, an insider is speaking out about how the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member reacted to her former spouse’s baby news while also sharing how their three daughters feel about their new brother or sister.
“Shannon was very shocked when she heard the news about David,” a source told E! News.
Shannon and David were seen attempting to salvage their marriage for several years on RHOC before ultimately calling it quits in 2017. A short time later, David began dating Lesley and in January of this year, as they enjoyed a trip to Miami for the Super Bowl, the couple became engaged.
As for how 16-year-old twins Stella and Adeline and 19-year-old Sophie feel about the news, the insider said that while Lesley’s pregnancy reveal is still “very fresh” to the girls, they are excited for their father.
“The girls are excited that their dad is happy, but it’s still very fresh to them. The girls still have a great relationship with their dad, but it was a huge surprise to them,” the source explained.
Back in March, Shannon gave her fans and followers on Instagram a look inside her romance with John when she shared a love letter he wrote to her.
“Our connection and chemistry are what people dream about. You are my person; the one I was meant to be with, the one that makes me feel whole,” he said in a portion of the note. “I started falling in love with you almost immediately and my love has grown ever stronger as our time together has flown by.”
