Kim Richards is going from Real Housewife to real life grandma. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is now a grandmother. Richards, who was one of the biggest child stars of the 1970's, welcomed her first grandchild, a baby boy, just a few days after her 52nd birthday. Kim Richards’ oldest daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn, gave birth to her baby boy on September 29. The next day, Brooke shared a photo of the newborn on social media and captioned the pic with his name: Hucksley Andrew Wiederhorn.

Kim’s family life

Brooke is the only child that Kim had with her late ex-husband, Monty Brinson. Brinson passed away earlier this year after a long battle with cancer, during which Kim served as his frequent caretaker.

In addition to Brooke, Kim is the mother of Whitney and Chad Davis and Kimberly Jackson.

Brooke Brinson married Thayer Weiderhorn, an heir to the Fatburger restaurant chain, in August  2014 and the couple had a second ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last year. Brooke went public with her baby news this past March when she shared a photo of an Easter basket filled with blue baby clothes and toys. At the time, the family revealed that Brooke was about three months along in her pregnancy and that her father had been able to hear about her big baby news before he died. Clearly, it has been a bittersweet time for the family.

Kim’s personal life hits a high note

In recent years, Kim Richards has made headlines for her rocky personal life and she has even taken a break from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” to deal with her issues with substance abuse.

But after two recent rehab stints, Kim now seems to be on a permanent road to recovery.

Kim has spent a lot of time with family in recent months, and the arrival of her first grandchild was prefaced by several social media pics that showed her cradling her daughter’s belly. Kim and Brooke even posed with Richards’ niece, Nicky Hilton, at Nicky’s own baby shower in May. At the time, Kim said it was “surreal” that bother her daughter and her sister Kathy Hilton’s daughter were pregnant at the same time. Nicky Hilton gave birth to her daughter, Lily, in July.

Kim Richards has been in the public eye her entire life. In the early 1970s, she starred in the ABC comedy series “Nanny and the Professor” and she went on to become a Disney star in films like “Escape to Witch Mountain.”  Now it sounds like Kim Richards is ready to take on her biggest role yet as a grandmother, and with any luck, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fans will get to see this new side of her.
