The Real Housewives of Dallas star Brandi Redmond and husband Bryan Redmond have two daughters together, but Brandi has been very open about the couple’s desire to try for a third in hopes of having a little boy. After a heartbreaking miscarriage late last year, it appears as though the Redmonds may have gotten their wish via adoption!
The Brandi Redmond adoption rumors first gathered steam after Tamara Tattles posted this blind item back in March:
This reality show participant on a show that is filming now has adopted a child. They are trying to keep the news under wraps but the streets are talking. The baby was adopted at three weeks. It is six weeks old now. Despite being adopted, the baby boy bears a very strong resemblance to his adopted family.
Brandi certainly seems to fit perfectly, including the fact that her family all have red hair. “The baby boy bears a very strong resemblance to his adopted family” seems like a peculiar and very intentional way to word the blind, and narrows the pool of potential reveals. (Some Bravo fans have speculated that the blind may be in reference to Kim Zolciak Biermann and her husband Kroy after an unidentified baby apparently made an appearance in one of Kim’s Snapchat videos. The Biermann’s definitely have a family that a child could resemble! Oh, and I won’t go into the cray rumors about who gave birth to the new Biermann baby. ? )
But, back to Brandi Redmond.
Roughly a day before the Tamara Tattles blind item was posted, Brandi and the rest of The Real Housewives of Dallas cast were in attendance for an event that turns out to have been a blue-themed baby shower! So it would make perfect sense that Tamara Tattles got a reliable tip from someone in attendance at the event and posted the blind the next day.
Here is the cake from the event made by Moonlight Cakes, which revealed that it was indeed for a baby shower:
And another shot of the cake and some of the other blue treats:
And a couple photos of Brandi at the event — wearing blue of course:
The shower came together very quickly, and was organized by Brandi’s bestie, and RHOD co-star, Stephanie Hollman. Stephanie posted a photo with party planner Rachel Burt Garcia expressing her gratitude for making the party happen on such short notice, and Brandi commented on the photo in a telling way: “My heart is so full and I feel so loved. Love u both and your hearts.” Mmm hmm.
Fast forward a couple months to Mother’s Day and we got this little tease from Brandi on Instagram:
The photo features a necklace with rings that have three different names on them. Although some commenters have argued that the third ring could have Bryan’s name (or even Brandi’s), that doesn’t make as much sense as a third child’s name — especially for a Mother’s Day post. (There have been reports circulating that the little boy’s name is Brewer, but I could find no evidence to back that up.)
What’s extra suspicious is that Brandi deleted the photo above while I was working on this post! Methinks it might have been too much of a clue that perhaps upset Bravo producers?
Deleting the rings photo comes too late, however, as Brandi pretty much confirmed that she has adopted a child in a series of Instagram story videos last night. Brandi was in New York City with numerous other Bravolebrities, and she posted some videos from her hotel room with Stephanie Hollman talking about her evening at the OK Magazine Summer Kick Off party.
She laughs about flirting with Million Dollar Listing New York star Steve Gold. “I told him I have three kids and he wasn’t interested,” Brandi casually reveals. I’m sorry, but getting your number of children wrong is not a mistake a mom makes! I think it’s time to slap a big ol’ “CONFIRMED” on this rumor! (Brandi later reposted her Instagram story videos, but mysteriously left out the clip where she mentions having three kids.)
So, with 92% certainty, let me say: “Congratulations to Brandi and Bryan!” If they have indeed added a little boy to their family, I cannot wait to meet him with The Real Housewives of Dallas returns!
