Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador is moving on with her life after her split from ex-husband David, but once the courts finalize their divorce, it looks like David wants to pop the question to his new girlfriend, Lesley Cook. Are things serious enough between the two after just six months that they could be already heading to the altar?
Sources at Radar Online are claiming that David is ready to start the next chapter of his life with Cook – and that includes a wedding and a new baby.
“David and Lesley are madly in love with each other. He feels like he was meant to meet her when he did and the two of them are soul mates,” says an insider.

Shannon and David already share three teenage girls, and Cook has two kids of her own. But the source says that David wants to have another baby with Cook as soon as they tie the knot. Apparently, he has already “become a father figure” to Cook’s kids and is such a good dad to his own girls, that when they get married, they want a kid of their own.
But, they won’t get to make any of that happen until David and Shannon get through their nasty court battle. The couple is at war over spousal support, especially since she has started making millions on her new QVC prepared meal line Real For Real Cuisine.
The former couple will be in court later this summer to finalize their divorce, and David wants to wait until his situation with Shannon is all wrapped up to move on with Cook because “he doesn’t want her to try and come after him for more money.”
But, he is living a private life with his new girlfriend, and he doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him.
As for Shannon, she just experienced her first Father’s Day as a single mom, and that was a different vibe for her after seventeen years of marriage. Over the weekend, she ran into her co-star Kelly Dodd – who also just went through a divorce from her ex-husband, Michael – and Shannon shared the experience on her Instagram with a pic and the hashtags #singlemomsonfathersday and #badhairdayforme.
Both Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd will be returning for season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County when it premieres on Bravo July 16th.
