Could baby number four be on the way for “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge? We’re so… not sure! While the reality star doesn't appear to be currently expecting, the newly remarried mom of three couldn’t stop talking about the idea of having a baby on Monday night’s episode on Bravo.
“I had a conversation with Eddie about the possibility of having a baby,” Judge, 46, confessed to cast members Heather Dubrow and Shannon Beador about her desire to get pregnant by her husband of almost one year, Eddie Judge. “I think he’s content and he’s happy right now,” said Judge, before tearfully admitting that sharing custody of her children, Sydney, 15, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8, with her ex-husband Simon Barney is her reason for wanting to expand her brood.
“The truth is I don’t see my kids 50 percent of the time, like 50 percent of their life I don’t get to see them,” Judge said. “I just want this baby that could be ours. Just mine and Eddie’s. I didn’t sign on to be a part time mom.”
After her tearful confession, Judge expressed her desire to welcome another child for a second time Monday after spending time with the grandson of her longtime friend and co-star Vicki Gunvalson. “Spending all this time around little Troy just makes me want to have a baby. They’re just so cute and sweet and bring so much love," she said.
The reality stars' pregnancy comments come on the heels of a request from her ex-husband to modify their child custody agreement. According to a report from Radar Online, in paperwork filed by Barney in March, Judge was accused of being negligent with their children's nutrition and hygiene. The couple's teenaged daughter, Sydney, has also since revealed that Judge was allegedly “verbally and emotionally abusive", a claim which Judge has since denied.
Judge last made headlines after bashing her former cast member Gretchen Rossi during an appearance on the “Today” show on April 14. When prompted by hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to discuss Rossi’s sudden departure from the “RHOC” series after five seasons, Judge responded, saying, “Who? I’m sorry, who? You know, when you’re gone, you’re gone.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
