If you've ever wondered to yourself while watching the show, how old is Lydia McLaughlin from Real Housewives of Orange County? Well, we have the answer! Lydia McLaughlin's age can be a bit hard to tell because she sometimes looks like a teenager, and sometimes looks much older.

Real Housewives of Orange County newcomer Lydia McLaughlin runs two companies with husband Doug McLaughlin, in addition to raising two young sons, 4-year old Stirling and 2-year-old Maverick.

But just how old is Lydia McLaughlin?

Born on March 10, 1981, this Canadian native is 32 years old, making her the youngest of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members.

Lydia made the great leap from Canada to California as a teen, attending the University of San Diego where she studied communications. She first met husband Doug at church and immediately formed a crush on the handsome entrepreneur. The two married in 2006 when Lydia was just 26-years-old. They just celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary on April 30 by renewing their vows in Las Vegas.

Together, Lydia and Doug manage Skylab Media Group, a full-service creative agency, and the Laguna Beach-based gallery Skylab Modern Art. As if that weren’t enough, Lydia designs her own line of jewelry called Lydia M Jewelry. The boho-chic line includes handmade necklaces, floral-inspired rings, and has even expanded to include “Puppy Bling.”

So what’s next for this young and active reality star? Hopefully we’ll find out more about Lydia as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 continues!
