David Beador‘s estranged wife, Lesley Beador, took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday night, where she shared a series of telling posts with her followers.

Following reports claiming the Real Housewives of Orange County alum, who was previously married to Shannon Beador for 17 years, filed for divorce from Lesley at the end of May, months after his initial petition last September, Lesley praised her ex, Eriks Pukke, and shared a quote about giving love.

“Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes an effort, who loves without hesitation. Be the person who makes people feel seen. There is nothing stronger than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them,” read a quote Lesley shared from Bianca Sparacino on June 7.

Hours later, Lesley shared a photo of her oldest daughter, Inga, and her father.

“Inga asked what her dad looked like when I was with him. … guessing you all are wondering too,” Lesley wrote in the caption of the pic, which featured Eriks laying in bed while holding a cutely-dressed baby Inga.

“Special thanks to this guy for co-parenting peacefully all these years,” Lesley wrote with the pic.

As RHOC fans may know, David and Lesley tied the knot in October 2020 and share a two-year-old daughter, Anna, who David requested full custody of in his latest filing.

After about two years of marriage, in late 2022, David and Lesley began experiencing marital drama, which led them both to file for divorce on different occasions. And even after David dismissed his petition, Lesley hinted that all was not well between them as she seemingly suggested the former reality star cheated on her in a cryptic Instagram post.

“Cheating on a good person is like throwing away a diamond and picking up a rock,” Lesley’s post stated.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
