Who is 'Selling Sunset' cast member Mary Fitzgerald's son Austin Babbitt?
Avid watchers might have seen Austin Babbitt walk Mary down the aisle for her wedding to Romain Bonnett in Season 2. Here's what to know about him.
The tea is really hot on Season 4 of 'Selling Sunset' as the star cast goes all out the way to serve it scathing hot to viewers who had to weather a 15-month gap between Season 3 and 4. While the recently released installment gave viewers nothing but the introduction to two new agents Emma Hernan and Vanessa Villela, the rest of it was just Christine Quinn who one can safely say, carried the show on her shoulders. Every other scene, apart from the ones where the agents were holding open houses or showings for clients, revolved around Christine regardless of her presence.
One of the very first agents of the Oppenheim Group, Mary Fitzgerald too didn't have much to offer this season apart from a personal update or two, one including her starting a family. She was a teen mom and speaks about her past years in one of the episodes. Her son doesn't feature in the season, but for viewers who wish to know more about him, keep on reading.
Who is Mary Fitzgerald's son Austin Babbitt?
Mary Fitzgerald, 41, gave birth to Austin Babbitt when she was just 16-years-old. Season 4 Mary seems guarded and doesn't talk about her personal life, an extreme contrast from Season 1 Mary who shared she became pregnant the first time she ever had sex. "I did have him when I was very young; I was 16," she shared. Austin is 24, and not much younger than Mary's husband, model and project manager Romain Bonnet. Austin does have an Instagram page but he doesn't seem to share a lot of updates, currently only four posts are up on his page, one being a throwback photo with his mom.
Babbitt appeared on Season 2 of the show when Mary and Romain finally decided to walk down the aisle. He appeared to be wiping away a tear during the ceremony. Other than that, he hasn't appeared on the show at all. Mary was heard talking to Romain about Austin when they were dating. She shared that the men in her life "get along great" during a confessional and continued to add, "I don't see Romain ever stepping in as like a father figure," before saying, "and Austin doesn't need him to." Coming to Mary and Romain's future plans, the season revealed they are in the busiest phases of their lives and she has decided to freeze her embryos for now in case the couple wishes to have children of their own later. They plan to enter the home-flipping business, however, there's still a long way to go before their plan materializes.
