Things may have gotten a little rocky for newlyweds Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet in the last few episodes of Selling Sunset‘s third season, streaming now on Netflix, but they’re still going strong! The adorable duo gave Life & Style an exclusive update on their marriage amid quarantine, baby plans, their overdue honeymoon and more!
Did Mary and Romain Break Up?
Things got a little shaky toward the end of season 3 of Selling Sunset, when Mary learned Romain lied about having girls in his Vegas suite during his bachelor party. While Romain maintains that it was the Oppenheim brothers, not him, that invited the ladies to their room, Mary insists it’s the fact that he lied about it that bothered her, since she’s dealt with lying and cheating in prior relationships. So, did the drama ever cause them to split?
Nope! In fact, the pair calls married life “so fun!” “We are going on 10 months already,” Mary told Life & Style exclusively. “Seems like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle towards Romain on the Doheny property. Married life has been so busy! We are working non-stop. Even while the rest of the world is in quarantine, it seems like we can’t catch a break! Romain is out the door at 6:30 am each morning for work.” If Mary has any complaints at all, it’s simply that she “wishes we got to spend more time together!”
How Has Quarantine Affected Mary and Romain?
Soon after getting married, Los Angeles went into lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. When asked if being quarantined together affected their relationship, Mary said, “Yes and no! I wish I could spend all day with Romain, but because we are both working so much right now, I feel like I hardly see him at all! But, when we do get to spend time together, we cherish it so much more.”
How does Romain get along with Mary‘s son Austin?
“I love Austin! I really haven’t seen him since the pandemic started, but Mary and I are hoping to go visit him in Scottsdale once we’re able to,” the French hunk told us. You can learn more about Mary’s only child here.
Are Romain and Mary Planning to Have Kids?
In season 3, Mary learns she’s still fertile and able to have children, but the couple needs to choose whether to freeze eggs or embryos to prepare for the future if they want to wait. So, are kids in their plans? “Eventually!” says Mary. “Right now, with work and everything else going on, we haven’t even had time to think about it.” They both say they have “no idea” how many kids they’d like to have together.
How Has Filming Selling Sunset Affected Mary and Romain’s Relationship?
“Reality TV puts a magnifying glass on every little thing we do or say,” says the couple. “But, overall, it’s made our relationship stronger. We’ve learned how to support one another and verbalize our feelings because of it!”
Now, the couple is “excited to begin flipping houses together” and “are looking forward to finally be able to take our long-overdue honeymoon together after the travel ban is lifted!”
What Happened with Mary and Romain’s Honeymoon?
Unfortunately, the couple was supposed to head off on their honeymoon right as COVID picked up, which stopped their plans in their tracks.“Well, we were meant to be going to Bali but we got to the airport and got turned away and weren’t allowed to board the plane,” said Mary. “By the time we would’ve landed the travel ban was going to be put in place while we were in the air, so we wouldn’t have been able to get off the plane basically and get to customs, so they wouldn’t let us board.” It sounds like it was for the best!
Does Mary Still Have the Moissanite Ring?
Mary’s engagement ring was a major point of contention through seasons 1 and 2 of Selling Sunset after costar Davina mocked the moissanite gem Romain originally gifted Mary with. However, she now has a new ring. “Romain bought me a real diamond a couple of months after filming ended,” Mary revealed. “It was about 6-8 months after filming he bought me a real diamond.”
