Lydia McLaughlin Gives Birth To Baby Boy
Baby No. 3! Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia McLaughlin and her husband Doug have welcomed their third child, a little boy, her rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

Son Roman Scott McLaughlin was born in Orange County on Tuesday, Nov. 4, at 9:05 a.m. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and measured 19 inches in length.

"Baby Roman has captured our hearts and just like that our lives are forever changed," Lydia tells Us of her newborn bundle of joy, who joins big brothers Stirling, 5, and Maverick, 3. "We are so grateful to now be a family of five."

Us exclusively revealed that the former Housewife was expecting this past April. At the time, her rep told Us that she was "hoping for a girl!"

The chilled-out mom of three left RHOC after just one season, opting to not remain with the cast for season nine.

Lydia told Us of her decision: "It's bittersweet. I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with -- it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."
