Meghan King Edmonds Instagram

Meghan King Edmonds recently took to the public to talk about her son Hart’s diagnosis. The two-year-old was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Now, she’s opening up about the diagnosis.

She shared about Hart’s progress on both her personal blog and on her Instagram page via a video. She explains that she knew he was “atypical” from the time he was born. But, until now, there was not an answer. She admits that she suspected it was cerebral palsy since he was young.

Meghan reveals that she has spent the past year taking Hart to various types of therapy. She also spent time researching different types of therapies and treatments.

Now that there is finally a diagnosis for her son, she is happy. She isn’t heartbroken over the diagnosis. She writes, “Think about it this way: it was as mundane as going through life every day without putting the lid on the toothpaste and then finally, I got to put the lid on. That’s how simple and right it felt.”

Hart was diagnosed with cerebral palsy just one day before World Cerebral Palsy Day. The reason she decided to share about Hart’s diagnosis so openly is that she wants to raise awareness. She says that she only knows one other person with cerebral palsy, so she didn’t realize that there was a spectrum.

Her son Hart seems to be making great progress in therapy, but she knows that he will still face some challenges. Right now, the family is focusing on helping Hart to speak in full sentences. In therapy, he’s working on his communication skills.

Jim Edmonds ‘unaware’ of Hart’s diagnosis

Hart’s father, Jim Edmonds, supposedly didn’t know about the cerebral palsy diagnosis. His rep spoke exclusively with Us Weekly, saying, “Jim is unaware of any such diagnosis and, if it is even true, it is completely unconscionable and absolutely disgraceful that Meghan would announce this on social media without discussing it with him first.”
