Season 3 of 'RHOD' premiers this summer, and Brandi will be introducing the fans to a new addition to the Redmond family, her baby son Bruin Charles.

Bruin was adopted into the family this winter and has been received with joy by his new siblings.

Bruin was born prematurely on Dec. 31, and a few days after the New Year, Brandi got a call from a friend connected to a social worker who told them about Bruin.

The baby had been born to teenage parents who had handed their son over to the state. The Redmonds adopted Bruin via a closed adoption  Brandi confesses that finally, she feels that her family is now complete.
