Meghan King Edmonds Reveals Her Son Has Cerebral Palsy -- Jim Edmonds Says He Didn't Know Before Her Blog Post!
Meghan King Edmonds is no stranger to sharing very personal details about her life. She shared a blog post that revealed a recent diagnosis one of her young children received.
Tuesday, Meghan revealed that her 2-year-old son has cerebral palsy. She went on to say that she was actually relieved by the diagnosis because she was expecting it.
'Hart was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy yesterday. Typically, kids are diagnosed after age 2, because CP is an observational diagnosis, and a child needs to be of the age and physical aptitude to be able to possess the skills that they are lacking or delayed in to receive the CP diagnosis.'
She revealed that previously doctors explained that he had Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL) which is a precursor to CP.
She also shared a photo of her son not long after he was born alongside a caption that read: 'Today, my blog post announced that Hart was officially diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy yesterday, and as fate would have it, today is World Cerebral Palsy Day so I felt called to share his experience and my experience with you all in order to hopefully normalize this diagnosis. Something I’ve learned is that a diagnosis isn’t limiting, people are. We are all born beautiful and perfect and then we learn we are too fat, too short, too ugly, too inept, too… everything. We place others in boxes dependent on their labels and we unconsciously allow ourselves to live within those boxes: woman, college graduate, high-school dropout, professional athlete, Cerebral Palsy. I am choosing to celebrate what makes Hart different and raise my children with the encouragement to live their lives out loud and to never let their differences limit or define them. So today we CELEBRATE World Cerebral Palsy Day. '
Not long after her inspiring and uplifting blog post, her ex-husband, Jim Edmonds , rep said that he was unaware of the diagnosis.
The rep told US Weekly: 'Jim is unaware of any such diagnosis and, if it is even true, it is completely unconscionable and absolutely disgraceful that Meghan would announce this on social media without discussing it with him first.'
The reality star claimed that Jim is not telling the truth and will not be addressing his claim any further.
