It looks like RHOC alum David Beador may be changing his relationship status from separated to It’s Complicated. Fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County first got to know David when he was married to cast member Shannon Beador. The couple split up ahead of Season 13 of the hit Bravo series, and their divorce was finalized in 2019. Before his split was official, David introduced his followers to his girlfriend, Lesley Cook. After David and Lesley went public, it didn’t take long for them to take their relationship to the next level. The couple welcomed their first child together (David shares three daughters with Shannon), a daughter named Anna Love Beador, in early 2021.
Before their daughter was born, Lesley and David tied the knot in 2020. Less than two years after they made things official, David filed for divorce from Lesley. However, she’s now saying that David has withdrawn the filing. David Beador met Lesley just a couple months after his breakup from ex-wife Shannon. Any viewer of RHOC knows how much of a train-wreck David and his ex were. First, David had an affair with Shannon’s friend, Nicole McMackin — which just imagine! He owned up to it on screen and then the couple tried to figure out their differences, infidelities, and trust issues in marriage counseling but that did not work out too well because in October 2017, the two broke up after 17 years of marriage.
After much thought and careful consideration, Shannon’s statement read: David and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We remain partners in parenthood and are committed to raising our three daughters. This is not the future we envisioned, and we kindly ask for privacy, especially for our children, during this transitional time.” Two or three months after they announced their split, David had moved on with Lesley (a single mother he met at SoulCycle class), who revealed to Us Weekly that they met while working out together: We love to work out together! And Dave had no problem flaunting his new boo just shortly after his breakup: News – David wasted no time and has already started dating again! He’s been seeing this woman for at least a few weeks now. The word spread around Newport Beach…It was in 2020 that they got engaged and started having kids. Six months later they revealed exclusively on People that they were having a baby.
