Jim Edmonds celebrated his 50th birthday in style with a pool party bash at his home in Southern California.
And it was his new live-in ladylove Kortnie O’Connor that pulled out all the bells and whistles — including array of balloons and other decorations, margarita bar and photo booth — to make it a memorable day on such a milestone mark.
‘Thank you @KortnieOC for the best day ever,’ the retired professional baseball player captioned an Instagram photo that showed him with at least four of his seven kids and an assortment of friends.

With the help of that photo booth, the former Real Housewives Of Orange County star was able to share a slew of snaps taken during the party and post them on his Insta-Story.
One of them showed him beaming with pride alongside O’Connor, his 22-year-old daughter Hayley, whose mother was Edmonds’s late first wife Lee Ann Horton, and his three youngest children, Aspen, three, and twins Hayes and Hart, two, that he shares with estranged third wife Meghan King Edmonds.
And to help give his 162,000 followers a better view at the sheer amount of photos taken during the bash, Edmonds laid many of them out on a table and shot video and posted on his Insta-Story.

With its soaring ceilings on full display, there’s also quick clip from inside the sprawling home panning the celebratory balloons along a window area that read: ‘Happy birthday Jimmy.’
Plus, there’s video taken from the patio outside the windows that were adorned with black, white and silver balloons.
Edmonds, who played most of his stellar baseball career with the Anaheim Angels and St. Louis Cardinals, looked summer ready in black-grey shorts and a matching polo-style shirt.
His new lady opted for a causal, but stylish, black summer dress, sandals and her dark brown tresses worn long with a center part.

Earlier this week, Edmonds took to social media and opened up about how O’Connor has helped pull him out of ‘a dark place’ in the wake of his bitter split with King.
‘If it wasn’t for this girl, I don’t think I would be here right now,’ he began in the caption of a series of photos of the couple.
‘She showed up in my life just at the right time. Amazing that her taking a chance on a plus one weekend to Mexico pulled me out of my hole and changed my life forever.’
It was alleged by King in January, that she, Edmonds and O’Connor had a threesome together, and that she chose former Playboy model O’Connor because she was a ‘friend’ and it felt ‘comfortable.’

‘This girl I thought was my friend,’ King claimed in a podcast in January, adding that it was ‘fun’ and she ‘wanted to do things for my husband.’
Edmonds also took time to vent about his estranged wife in his recent Instagram post.
‘I was going through hell ending a loveless and abusive relationship. The lies and accusations that followed the breakup only put me deeper into a funk,’ he wrote with obvious emotion.
However, King claimed on her podcast in January that O’Connor had ‘betrayed’ her by going on the trip with Edmonds to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a wedding and not telling her about the vacation.

Edmonds filed for divorce last October, one day after their fifth wedding anniversary.
It came about four months after a sexting scandal, where King discovered her husband had shared inappropriate messages with another woman.
Edmonds admitted her had a ‘lapse in judgement’ but denied he had any kind of physical contact or affair with the woman.
The former couple’s divorce proceedings have reportedly been stalled over ongoing disagreements with their prenuptial agreement, according to E! News.
