‘Feeling very grateful for every moment of life,’ he went on.

There was a minor mishap when his daughter Hayley accidentally twisted a colored confetti cannon the wrong way, letting out blue instead of pink. Luckily things got confirmed by cupcakes that revealed pink centers.
‘Congrats Lauren and Dylan,’ Jim wrote before joking: ‘3 out of 4 wins for gender battle lol Hayley #babygirlontheway #grandpa.’
There were also somber moments, like when Jim and family visited the grave of Lauren and Hayley’s mother, Lee Ann Horton, who passed away in 2015.

After that he married Allison Jayne Raski, who he was with from 2008 to 2014 and shares two children with.
Jim’s third marriage was to Real Housewives Of Orange County’s Meghan King.
They had three kids together before the marriage dissolved amid reports he was cheating with one of the family’s nannies – reports which he adamantly denied.
Since, the former couple has been in a tense custody battle.
Things only got more complicated as the pair began to quarantine in different states amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The kids – Aspen, three, and twins Hayes and Hart, two-years-old tomorrow – have been traveling between LA and St. Louis in order to spend time with both of their parents.
Jim’s team defended the decision to have the kids travel, tell Us Weekly: ‘As happy as Jim is to have the kids home, he did not require Meghan to travel during this shutdown and bring them back. He would never do anything to put any of his children at risk.’
Since their split both Meghan and Jim have moved on to new relationships. Edmonds is now dating Kortnie O’Connor and King is romancing Christian Schauf.
