Fans Are Convinced This ‘Real Housewives’ Star Secretly Adopted a Child
Is three the magic number?
Fans Aren’t Turning a Blind Eye
Though Brandi Redmond is known for being the life of the party on Real Housewives of Dallas, she’s making headlines of her own for something very different.
After spending months combing through her social media pages, eagle-eyed fans have come up with a theory that may be keeping the famous redhead at home: they think that Brandi has adopted another child.
The 39-year-old already has two daughters, Brooklyn and Brinkley. However, based on her Instagram posts, Brandi may be secretly raising a third child she has yet to introduce to fans.
Baby rumors began swirling earlier this year when a blind item that suggested one of the stars of the Real Housewives had secretly adopted a child made its way to Reddit. With that information in hard, RHOD fans were off to snoop around social media for any hints about the secret child, quickly deducing that Brandi was the Bravolebrity the anonymous source was hinting about.
“Based on the language in the blind (“the baby bears a strong resemblance to its new family”, or something) as well as some sniffing around various instagrams (Stephanie [Hollman] threw a blue-themed party, the baker/cake decorator then posted a pic of the same cake and said it was for a baby shower; Brandi replied that her “heart is so full”,) people have mostly figured out that it must be that Brandi adopted a baby, presumably a redhead baby that bears a strong resemblance to the other members of the family,” one fan wrote.
Who’s the Third B?
A few weeks after the blind item, Brandi continued to fuel rumors when she posted a photo of green margarita next to a baby bottle on her Instagram.
However, it wasn’t until this Mother’s Day when the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader seemingly confirmed speculations about a secret adoption. On Sunday, May 13, Brandi shared a photo of a necklace baring pendents of her children’s names. While two of the baubles were engraved with the names of daughters Brooklyn and Brinkley, a third pendant — also baring a moniker starting with the letter “B” — was also attached to the chain.
“Being a mom is such a blessing to me and sharing life with my family. Days are hard but love comes easy,” Brandi wrote in the caption.
“Wishing all the moms, future moms, pet moms and all a beautiful & blessed day & year,” she continued. “Thank you to my loves for this gorgeous necklace that I will wear close to my heart always. You all are my biggest journey & dream come true. I love y’all.”
Now, that ring could say Bryan, the name of her husband. However, that seems a little weird for a Mother’s Day present.
Fans took to Reddit to discuss this newest piece of evidence.
“She adopted a baby boy. Her and her family come into my job pretty often,” one fan disclosed, but didn’t elaborate further on the actual child.
The Waiting Game
Another fan said that, based on her internet sleuthing, Brandi had adopted a boy named Brewer.
“A local Dallas lady posted it in response to the blind item as well as some (now deleted) Instagram comments,” the eagle-eyed fan wrote.
As for why the Real Housewives of Dallas star is keeping it a secret, some fans think it has to do with the show itself.
“I think producers want it to be a surprise storyline so they probably asked her to keep it off he social media until then,” wrote one RHOD follower.
Another person believes it may have to do with the fact that she adopted her child, which can have rules surrounding the process.
“I don’t know a lot about adoption contracts but maybe its open and the birth parents don’t want so much social media attention or something or its easier for the child to transition with out the social media frenzy? Im really not sure,” the fan wrote.
Last year, Brandi revealed she had suffered a miscarriage during her brief fallout with best friend Stephanie. “It’s okay, I’m okay — I promise,” she said on an episode of the Bravo series. “We just don’t talk about it.”
