And now the grieving star revealed she’s paid tribute to her son, her second child with husband Kyle Bosworth, by getting his initial tattooed on her wrist.

Taking to Instagram yesterday, the 31-year-old showcased the design, which was created using traditional tattoo ink and some of McCoy’s ashes, as she held onto a teddy bear that featured McCoy’s name.

Captioning the post, Kara revealed the cuddly toy had been gifted by a designer friend and created to weigh exactly the same as her son at birth.

She wrote: “This bear weighs exactly 11 pounds and 4 ounces. Exactly the size of the hole in my heart. But thanks to this thoughtful gift, my arms don’t feel so painfully empty.

“I can’t quite articulate how much carrying the exact weight of McCoy against my body grounds me.

Adding: “I think my physical need for him will be there forever, the heaviness of his absence always present. But this sure helps. Thank you @kylieraedesigns for this big dude and thank you @mb_jackets for the custom ribbon.”

Speaking of her inking, Kara added: “Also feeling thankful for my new (first) tattoo, with my son’s ashes in the ink… so that my baby can be with me always.

“He can stay forever in my arms this way, in the place he last rested.

“I know I’m privileged in my grief, to have the support of so many. It’s very hard to feel lucky right now, and yet, somehow, I know I am. That being said, I’m very much ready for the dick kicks to stop.”

The former Bravo star also detailed several unintentionally heartbreaking encounters in the weeks following her son’s death.

Kara shared: “To the poor Shipt shopper who remarked ‘the baby should have been born by now, right?’ and the shocked insurance agent, and the others who didn’t mean to throw the grenades they did…

“When I say ‘It’s okay,’ I don’t mean ‘I’m okay,’ I’m saying I know you didn’t know.

“But I promise, you’re not upsetting me by ‘reminding’ me, I’ll never need a reminder,” she continued.

“I’m just sad that the answer to your question isn’t what I hoped it would be. It should be a joyful Q&A, not a landmine. It should be different.”

She concluded: “Instead, here I am, clutching a stuffed toy wishing it was a real boy.

“To my Instead Mamas, I thank you especially for all the continued comfort, encouragement, and love. And you’re right, it is getting easier to bear. (Look! I even did a pun. Good for me.)”.

In April, Kara, who is also mother to daughter Decker, made the heartbreaking announcement of her baby son’s passing on Instagram.

She wrote: “On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am.

“Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection).

“During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.

“He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts.”

Following her son’s death, Kara then lost her father, Matt Keough, shortly after.

Matt, died at the age of 64, of “pulmonary embolism” nearly 4 weeks after the former reality star’s newborn son died during birth.
