Jim Edmonds took his son Hart to physical therapy and documented their day together on Instagram Stories on Tuesday, November 5. One day earlier, his estranged wife Meghan King Edmonds gave her first interview since their split and accused Jim of not seeing his kids.
Jim and Meghan share daughter Aspen, 2, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 17 months. Hart was diagnosed with irreversible brain damage in July and has been undergoing intensive physical therapy to combat the difficulties he has stemming from his diagnosis. "A little oxygen therapy with the Hart," Jim, 49, captioned a photo of himself holding his son while sitting in a hyperbolic chamber. The athlete also shared a video of Hart taking a few steps after his treatment. "Missed most of the video but of course he walks right after treatment," the former MLB player wrote on the clip.
New of Jim and Meghan's split broke on October 25. In the following days, reports surfaced that Meghan had accused Jim of having an affair with the family's nanny Carly Wilson. Both Jim and Carly vehemently deny the accusations.
Jim spoke out to express his dismay over the way their breakup was playing out on October 30. "I have way too much love for my wife and kids for this to happen and it’s time for us to get back to the private life we used to live. Meghan is a truly special woman who my kids are so fortunate to have as their mother … I love my family and will make it right again," he told Us Weekly.
He continued, "It saddens me tremendously that my wife is hurt. After having a few days to digest the situation, I realize that something that occurred in a split second spiraled out of control with no way to stop it."
Meghan blasted Jim in her first interview on November 4. "I have to say that when he gave the ‘nice’ interview a few days ago, he was completely speaking for me. At that time I had not exchanged one text message with him and I have still not spoken to him on the phone. I have endured prolific controlling by Jim and it isn’t slowing down. Even when I make an unassuming post on Instagram, he hurls insults at me for a battery of made-up indiscretions. I’m sick of the abuse and I won’t engage anymore — and I don’t have to," Meghan told Us Weekly.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star also alleged that Jim hadn't seen their children since he moved out the day after their split. "He Jim hasn’t seen them since he left me — in no part due to any reluctance on my part — but hopefully, he will see them soon," she added.
