Happy 36th birthday to fellow Newfoundlander and newest (certainly not the oldest) cast member to (re)join Real Housewives of Orange County, Lydia McLaughlin.

Feeling the birthday love. 👸🏻 #Imthirtysix

Lydia was born to be in television. As a member of the Stirling family, owners of Canada’s first 24-hour network NTV, she was destined to find her future in front of the cameras. McLaughlin has confirmed her return to RHOC next season as a “new” housewife.

Mrs. McLaughlin and husband Doug recently appointed Lisa Vanderpump as new Editor-in-Chief of their popular magazine Beverly Hills Lifestyle.  The Stirling family owns the oldest and only entertainment magazine back at home in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Much love from the Motherland to this Canadian cutie. Have a very happy birthday!
