“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lydia McLaughlin revealed that she would not be filming the newest season of the show with the other ladies, because it was simply too much for her. She left the reunion crying and after her mother was attacked by Ryan Culberson on the season finale, Lydia didn’t feel like it was a place for her to be. She cited that she wanted to focus on her business and family.

And it sounded like she wanted to focus on having another baby, so it wasn’t surprising when she shared the news this week. According to a new report published on April 11, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lydia McLaughlin has now revealed that she is expecting her third child.

“Lydia is hoping for a girl,” Lydia’s rep has revealed, adding that they are expecting their third child. “Both Lydia and Doug are so excited to be adding to their beautiful family.” Lydia herself confirmed the news on Instagram, sharing a picture of her growing baby bump. She added on Instagram that with two small boys, she is hoping for a girl. She is already showing because she has a smaller frame, but she isn’t due until November of this year, meaning she has a long way to go.

And it sounds like Lydia and her husband are not planning on slowing down anytime soon. In fact, they are still both working at the “Beverly Hills Lifestyle” magazine and she has been working on her jewelry line as well. In addition, she has plans of releasing her first book in 2015.

The book is planned to be a personal memoir and part Bible study course. Of course, this isn’t surprising, since Lydia was one of the women on the show who shared her religion with viewers. Alexis Bellino, who is also out of the cast, is the other housewife who was highly religious.

Given that she is expecting her third child, and won’t be on the new season of the show, fans will have to follow her Instagram for more details. Will you follow her account in hopes of seeing the baby?
