When Romain Bonnet was introduced to Selling Sunset viewers in Season 1, many were skeptical about his compatibility with Mary Fitzgerald. With a significant age difference and seemingly different life priorities, doubts arose about the future of Mary Fitzgerald & Romain Bonnet together.
Fortunately, the real estate professional and model were able to work through their initial issues and eventually tied the knot in Season 2. However, their relationship continued to face challenges in subsequent seasons. Season 3 saw them clash over the topic of starting a family, and in Season 4, financial disagreements emerged.
With Season 6 now in full swing, fans are left wondering: Are Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet still together? The answer seems to be a resounding yes, as the couple is not only still together but also actively trying to have a baby.
In Episode 7 of Season 6, Mary reveals their aspirations of starting a family. She shares that they have put their previous plans on hold and are now actively trying to conceive.
Mary states, “Romain and I have decided to just put that off and just go straight for trying to get pregnant now. We’re not waiting anymore, we’re doing it now.”
The couple had faced prior challenges regarding their views on having children. This issue became a significant conflict in Season 3 when Mary contemplated freezing her eggs due to her age and desire to expand her family. In Season 4, Mary confirmed that she had indeed frozen her eggs, but it remained unclear whether she had progressed to a new cycle or embryo transfer.
Fans have even speculated about Mary’s pregnancy after Romain shared a photo shortly after the Season 6 premiere. However, no official confirmation has been made. Aside from the topic of children, Mary and Romain have also had disagreements concerning their home and finances. Mary, who earns more than Romain, has been comfortable with this income gap. However, Romain has expressed some discomfort with the disparity.
During a dinner outing, Mary proposed the idea of moving to a new home, citing the heating real estate market and the risk of missing out on their dream property. While Mary was open to putting down money immediately, Romain expressed financial limitations that prevented him from contributing equally.
Mary later confided in co-star Amanda Smith about their dilemma, hoping that if she found an ideal home and presented it to Romain, he would fall in love with it and allow her to cover the expenses.
The Intriguing Journey of Mary Fitzgerald & Romain Bonnet on Selling Sunset
It’s worth noting that Mary and Romain have had a history of concealing details about their relationship. During Season 2, viewers witnessed their lavish televised wedding in October 2019. However, when TMZ obtained copies of their marriage license and certificate, discrepancies emerged.
As it turns out, the couple had legally married on March 9, 2018, at the Ventura Courthouse in California—19 months before their televised wedding. This revelation left viewers questioning the authenticity of their on-screen nuptials.
Their courthouse union event preceded the filming of Season 1 by three months, meaning they were technically married when Romain proposed to Mary on the show. Mary’s representative confirmed that they had a civil union before filming but opted not to disclose it to their friends and family as they were still assessing the viability of their relationship. According to the representative, they considered the televised wedding as their official marriage.
While this explanation makes some sense, it raises questions about what else they may have kept hidden about their relationship. The staged engagement after having been married for months certainly casts some doubt on the transparency of their storyline. Nonetheless, Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet have managed to navigate their relationship’s ups and downs on Selling Sunset. As the show continues, fans eagerly await further developments and hope to see their dreams of starting a family come true.
