The Keough family is really going through a difficult time. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Jeana Keough’s daughter Kara Keough lost her son McCoy in childbirth. She has been very open and honest about her struggles during this period.

As if life wasn’t difficult enough, Kara recently revealed that her father Matt Keough passed away. Jeana and Matt had three kids together, Kara, Colton Keough, and Shane Keough. After over twenty years of separation, Jeana revealed that the two of them were officially divorced at BravoCon in November 2019.

Kara posted some throwback photos with her father on Instagram. She wrote, “Daddy, please take care of my son. Teach him the circle changeup and how to find forever friends. You’re on grandpa duty in heaven now. Xoxo, Hammerhead.”

Vicki Gunvalson commented, “Kara, I am so sorry. There are no words to say, other than you are loved.”

In a post of his own, Shane wrote, “My favorite place was always on your shoulders. It makes me smile knowing McCoy will be there with you; right there on your shoulders. It wasn’t always perfect but I wouldn’t change it for the world. You taught me more than you’ll ever know and I hope that I make you proud. Kick back and enjoy the eternal sunshine. Till I see you again – I love dad.” Kara commented, “I love those photos of him.”

In an Instagram story, Shane wrote, “I’ll always remember the smile, velcro shoes, clothing with more pockets than necessary, and a life many could only dream of. And of course the mustache.”
