'Selling Sunset': Mary feels stressed about having children with Romain as she recalls past miscarriages
Mary Fitzgerald, 39, and Romain Bonnet's, 26, fairytale wedding was one of the highlights of 'Selling Sunset' Season 2 and it was only natural for the showrunners to extend their storyline in Season 3. This time, we'll see them take the next steps in their relationship.
Mary and Romain make for a happy couple but that's not enough for a marriage to sustain. She is hitting 40 and is aware that her ability to conceive will diminish with age. To be able to combat that, she has planned to visit a fertility clinic to figure out if she has good eggs left and if they can be frozen. But, she is taking that step all by herself and that had good friend Chrishell Stause surprised. She inquired why she would choose to keep Romain out of the loop.
"It's like so much pressure, you know, because he definitely wants to, and it's already, like our age difference. Like, this would really magnify that. And...I just don't want anything to change," Mary explained and added that she was married before and pregnant with twins but lost them. "The first one didn't take very long, and then the second one I lost around, I believe it was nine weeks," she recalled during her confessional and branded it as an emotional and intense experience that she would never want to go through again.
Will Romain leave Mary for not having a child?
It's understandable why Mary would want to keep the clinic appointment a secret at the moment but on Chrishell's insistence, she spoke with Romain at her boss, Brett Oppenheim's housewarming party. She admitted to have wanting to hide it from Romain because of said reasons. He understood and appreciated that she kept his needs and wants (of starting a family) above all.
The results came in as Chrishell was showing them their new house together (which was in need of construction). Mary was ecstatic to share the news with Romain that they can start a family. "You have got yourself a very fertile lady," she exclaimed as they kissed.
