RHOC star Kara Keough’s MLB player dad Matt dies just weeks after her newborn son’s death – The Sun

REAL Housewives of Orange County alumn Kara Keough announced her father passed away just one month after her newborn son died after birth.

Matt Keough – the former Oakland Athletics pitcher and current special assistant – passed away on Saturday at the age of 64.


In the midst of her grief over her son, the 32-year-old is now grieving the passing of her father.

Along with a series of pictures of the father-daughter duo, she wrote: "Daddy, please take care of my son.

"Teach him the circle changeup and how to find forever friends. You’re on grandpa duty in heaven now.
"Xoxo, Hammerhead."


Kara's mom, Jeana, also shared a tribute post about her ex-husband with a stunning picture of him in the early days.

Matt was initially married to the RHOC housewife but the had been separated for over 15 years – even while she was on the show – before she finally signed the divorce papers last year.

She claimed that Matt’s 1992 injury impacted their marriage severely. He was hit in the head with a baseball in the middle of a game.


The Oakland Athletics made the initial announcement about Matt without providing further details.

Billy Beane, the team's executive vice president of baseball operations, said in a statement: "Matt was a great baseball man and a proud Oakland A.

"He had an incredible passion for the game and we were lucky to have him and his wealth of knowledge alongside us for the years he worked as a special assistant.

"He left an unforgettable impression on everyone he touched in baseball.

"Our sincere condolences are with the entire Keough family tonight."


Many of Kara's fans rushed to the comments to offer their condolences as they know she recently lost her newborn son, as well.

RHOC alums Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were some of the housewives to comment on the post.

Tamra wrote: "Oh Kara. I am so sorry. Big hugs."

While Vicki commented: "Kara, I am so sorry. There are no words to say except that you are loved."

Kara made the heartbreaking announcement about her son on social media earlier in April.

She wrote: "On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am.

"Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection).

"During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.

"He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts."

The daughter of Jeana Keough continued: "I wrote this for the organ/tissue procurement team to read out in his honor…'Tonight, we join together to honor this little savior’s gifts of life.

"'Through him, may others find new hope and profound healing… and may he live again through them.

"'May his legacy shine in the form of lifetimes aplenty – lives filled with laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all gratitude.

"'May it be said that McCoy Casey Bosworth left this world in a better place, for a better place…. that he made an impact… that he was an answered prayer… that he was a hero.

"'May angels lead him in.'
"Thank you, McCoy.”

 

Kara concluded her emotional post: "And Jesus said, 'Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices.

"You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.

"A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.

"So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.' John 16:20

"Until we see you again… We love you, McCoy."

Kara, 33, and her husband share a 4-year-old daughter, Decker.
