RHOC's Shannon Beador says she sent baby gift to ex-husband David & new wife Lesley after couple welcomes daughter Anna

REAL Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador said she sent a baby gift to ex-husband David Beador and his new wife Lesley Ann Cook.

The couple recently welcomed their first daughter Anna together in February.


The 57-year-old shared that she sent her ex and his new wife a gift while talking to Us Weekly.

Shannon revealed: "I sent a gift.

“I mean, I sent it with the kids [we share], so I don’t know [how David feels about it].”

The Bravo star was married to David, 56, from 2000-2019.

The exes share three daughters together: 18-year-old Sophie and 16-year-old twins Stella and Adeline.


The RHOC star also revealed that co-parenting with David has been difficult, sharing: “I’ve come to accept it.

“He just had a baby. … So, I’m sure he has his hands full.”

Since their split, Shannon has moved on with her new boyfriend John Janssen.

She gushed about John and said "he's great and he’s very, very supportive."

Shannon shared that her boyfriend is "very good" with her daughters, adding: “He knows that they have a father. He’s kind to them and he’s sweet and helpful when they need anything, but he doesn’t take on that father role.”


David and Lesley, 37, announced that they welcomed their first child together last month in an Instagram post.

The parents cuddled up and smiled in a photo with the newborn, which Lesley captioned: "Our first sunset with our sweet little Anna."

The new mother also shared a series of baby-related hashtags.

The pair first revealed they were expecting back in July 2020.


David confirmed the news to People magazine, adding that the two were "so excited" as they awaited the arrival of their baby.

The couple, who began dating just a few months after he separated from Shannon, tied the knot in October.

The RHOC star filed for divorce from David after 17 years of marriage in December 2017, though the split dragged on until April 2019.

During the nasty battle over money and custody, David accused Shannon of overindulging in alcohol and partying.

She denied having a drinking problem and said her ex wanted to "hurt and embarrass" with the allegations.

The drama continued when Shannon alleged David "didn't wanna” talk to her or their daughters.
