The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' alum spent Christmas with 4-year-old twin sons Hart and Hayes and 5-year-old daughter Aspen.
It's not easy being a single parent and raising three kids on your own. And it's especially hard during the holidays. Meghan King is no stranger to the dynamic. She shares her kids, 4-year-old twin sons Hart and Hayes and 5-year-old daughter Aspen with their dad, ex-husband Jim Edmonds, and raises them on her own. According to PEOPLE, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum spent the holiday with her kids, her parents, and her siblings: sisters Caitlin and Julie King and brother RJ King. "Merry Christmas from my family to yours," King captioned a series of photos of the family celebrating the special occasion. "May the season of giving and selflessness bring you joy and peace. I love you!"
King also mentioned that her kids get gifts from Santa a day later on Dec. 26. King said, "The reason why is because I am a single mom and I get to split every single holiday. And I decided two years ago when I had to give them up on my very first Christmas Eve, that I never want to feel that way again. And so I decided: Christmas is going to be when I decide it is. So tonight, we made cookies, we put them out, I tucked the kids in bed, and now I'm going to go play Santa," she added.
In another post, she shared a video of all of her children's toys wrapped under the tree. "Thinking I'm killing it and then I realize I'm a single mom and there's literally going to be nothing in my stocking tomorrow," King wrote, "and the kids will know and Christmas (well it's actually the day after Christmas but I reinvented a holiday so I could still have them on *fake* Christmas Eve bc it wasn't my year but I refuse to actually accept that) will be ruined and all of my mems of finding out Santa wasn't real from my next-door-neighbor's mean older cousin, Alicia (saying her name bc it needs to be said bc I'm still bitter… she ruined my imagination as a 6-year-old and it wasn't fair), will repeat the cycle in my 6-year-old daughter if I don't fill up my stocking and, well, Christmas will be ruined." She continued, "So I recycle, reduce, and reuse and let's end this post with #sustainability.
As for her relationship with her ex, she had a temporary restraining order against him in June. Explaining the situation on her podcast Intimate Knowledge, she said, "We ended up turning it into a consent order that has all of the same terms as a restraining order but now it's reciprocal, so I have to follow it as well," she explained, claiming, "I follow the rules so whatever, it doesn't make any difference to me. It's good for Jim and I because we don't have to see each other or communicate except about the kids, which is nice."
