Brandi Redmond Has Adopted a Baby Boy


BravoTV.com:
Brandi Redmond's dream of growing her family has finally come true. The Real Housewives of Dallas mom shared that she and husband Bryan Redmond adopted an infant son, Bruin Charles, this past winter.

Brandi recently opened up to PEOPLE about her adoption journey. “It’s changed our lives forever,” she shared. “We are obsessed with him, my whole family is. We’re just so blessed.”

Brandi expressed her desire to give daughters Brooklyn, 9, and Brinkley, 6, another sibling last season of RHOD. She revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage while trying to grow her family and explored with her OBGYN what challenges lie ahead for her as she tried to get pregnant with baby No.3. But after failing to conceive, Brandi and Bryan decided to stop trying for another baby, according to PEOPLE.

But at the beginning of 2018, Brandi got a call from a friend connected to a social worker who told the family about Bruin. Bruin was born prematurely on December 31, weighing 4 pounds and 5 ounces and measuring 18 inches. His biological parents were teenagers, who awarded him to the state at birth. Social workers had trouble finding a family who wanted a son until they found Brandi and Bryan. “It happened pretty much overnight,” Brandi told PEOPLE. “He was in the neonatal intensive care unit because he was born prematurely, so we flew out of Dallas — he was still in Texas —and we met him in the hospital. We just immediately fell in love.”
