Meghan King Edmonds is not sure having her twin sons circumcised was the right decision.
The mother of three reflected on her twin sons’ — Hart King and Hayes King — circumcision last summer on Monday’s premiere episode of the “Intimate Knowledge” podcast with Brooke Burke.
“I have two sons and I did it. My partner was a professional baseball player,” Edmonds said of her estranged husband Jim Edmonds. “He was like, ‘Well in the locker room, I don’t want him to get him made fun of.’ I was like, ‘Okay, well, you’re the dad. You do have 50 percent choice in this.'”
Edmonds admitted it was a “really hard” decision that had her “really upset.”
“I’m like, ‘We live in — 2018, at the time,” she argued. “We know how to clean ourselves, we have showers and hygiene. Why would I do this to my child? He’s a little baby.'”
“Also, there’s no kind of numbing except topically,” Edmonds noted. “What type of long-term [psychological] effects does this possibly have on our kids growing up through the years? And then — I’m gonna get real deep, but is this why maybe men are more aggressive? I don’t know.”
“There’s no reason to manipulate your baby boy’s body like that,” she concluded. “I don’t like it. It makes me sad.”
