REAL Housewives of Orange County’s Jim Edmonds has celebrated his 50th birthday with his girlfriend Kortnie O’Connor.
The star used the opportunity to praise his new love after recently slamming his marriage to ex-wife Meghan King.
The happy couple shared cheerful snaps of Jim marking his half century with close friends and family.
As well as Kortnie, he was joined by his three children – daughter Aspen, 3, and 2-year-old twin sons Hayes and Hart – for the day.
Posting a smiling group photograph of those attending the gathering, Jim wrote: “Thank you @kortnieoc For the best day ever”.
The party was complete with a margarita bar, a photo booth and balloons.
She captioned of picture of them with the children: “Happy Birthday Jimmy! We love you!”
Another picture showed the former sportsman blowing out candles on a blue and white baseball themed cake, with his daughter in his arms.
Meanwhile, Meghan was enjoying glasses of champagne at home with friends.
The retired baseball player recently slammed his “abusive and loveless” marriage to the fellow reality star.
Jim went on to credit his new girlfriend – whom he reportedly met when he had a threesome with her and his wife during his marriage – with saving him from a “dark place,” in the pointed Instagram post on Tuesday.
He continued to gush about his new live-in girlfriend, claiming that she has made him a “better person and father.”
It came after his ex used the same phrase to describe her new relationship with Christian Schauf.
Alongside a grinning picture of her with her new love, Meghan, 35, wrote: “Have you ever felt like your life was going so far from what you had planned, but instead of resisting it you leaned into it, made yourself a better person, and waited for the universe to do its thing?”
