Edmonds and O'Connor, a realtor, went public with their relationship in April 2020. Both he and ex-wife Meghan King previously identified O'Connor as a friend who once had a threesome with the then-couple, but Edmonds later claimed that was "a joke."

Last summer, the former baseball player, 51, shared a lengthy Instagram post about O'Connor, saying she changed his life "forever."

"If it wasn't for this girl, I don't think I would be here right now," he wrote. "She showed up in my life just at the right time. Amazing that her taking a chance on a plus one weekend to Mexico pulled me out of my hole and changed my life forever."

"I was in such a dark place; one that I didn't think could happen to me," he continued. "Along came this beautiful woman by chance, who lit up my world and brought me back to life. I'm very grateful for my amazing friends, children and this amazing woman for making me a better person and father."

Edmonds was previously married to King, 36. The two wed in 2014 after dating for a year and a half and went on to star in the Real Housewives of Orange County together. They split in 2019 amid rumors that Edmonds had an affair with their former nanny, Carly Wilson. (Both Edmonds and Wilson have denied having a sexual relationship.)

The exes share three kids: 3-year-old twin boys Hart and Hayes and 4-year-old daughter Aspen. Their divorce was finalized in May.
