Taking to his Instagram account on Wednesday, Shane Keough honored his late nephew, McCoy Casey Bosworth, in an emotional post. He shared a photo of the child’s empty crib and nursery and captioned his post with a heartfelt statement.

The former major league baseball (MLB) player wrote: “We join together to honor this little savior’s gifts of life.” He went on to share his hope that others find hope and “profound healing” through Bosworth.

Shane mourns his nephew’s death

Shane hoped his nephew’s legacy would carry on shining and bringing “laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all gratitude.” He noted how the child had left the world “in a better place, for a better place…”

May angels lead him in

The former athlete rounded off his post by adding that he hoped Bosworth “made an impact,” was “an answered prayer,” and “a hero.” He hoped angels would lead the little boy and concluded by thanking him.


Kara announces son’s death

On Tuesday, Kara, 32, announced that the newborn had tragically passed on due to complications after delivery. She revealed to her followers that during the course of her son's birth, he had experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.


What is shoulder dystocia

According to the “March of Dimes,” shoulder dystocia is “a birth injury that happens when one or both of a baby’s shoulders get stuck inside the mother’s pelvis during labor.” The condition is an “unpreventable and unpredictable obstetric emergency,” according to the National Library of Medicine.


Kara’s other child

Kara and her husband, Kyle Bosworth, 33, have since chosen to donate their baby’s organs. The former reality star and her husband also share a daughter, Decker, 4.


Starring with her mom on RHOC

Kara previously appeared alongside her mother, Jeana, on RHOC. Her mother left the show on season 8 only to return as a featured guest for seasons 10 through 12.

Announcing her pregnancy

Kara revealed her pregnancy in November 2019 with a photo shoot featuring her family. She and her husband got married in 2014.
