The sun has not set on Mary Fitzgerald Bonnet's journey to baby.

Seven months after sharing she had experienced a pregnancy loss, the Selling Sunset star told E! News in an exclusive interview that she and husband Romain Bonnet will "keep trying at some point" for a child.

"It took a lot longer than I anticipated to just process and heal both emotionally and physically because it was a septic miscarriage," Mary explained. "But I'm better now. We're good, made us stronger." (Tune into E! News tonight, Nov. 7, for from Mary's interview.) 

However, the 43-year-old noted that doctors recently "found some other physical issues that might make it even harder" to conceive, so the couple is in no rush to expand their family, which includes her 26-year-old son Austin Babbitt from a previous relationship.

"I need to go in from more testing to figure out if IVF gonna be the right decision," Mary continued, "or if we try naturally, are there going to be possibilities that it'll take?" 

Stars Open Up About Pregnancy Loss

The realtor added that she's also open to the idea of a surrogate "if that's our last resort."

As she noted, "That could be possible, too."

Given the personal nature of her baby journey, Mary—who tied the knot with Romain in 2018—took a step back from work and the drama within the Oppenheim Group office to heal during season seven of Selling Sunset, out now on Netflix. And while she considers the latest episodes to be "pretty painful" to watch, Mary wanted to share her story to help others who may be in the same situation.

"It's so common for this to happen to people and it wouldn't be right just to keep it to myself," she said. "From experience, when I talk to other people who have been through it, it heals, it helps and make it feel just more normal."

An all-new season of Selling Sunset is streaming now on Netflix.

Read on for a closer look inside the cast's love lives:

Jason Oppenheim

Jason was on the market for a while before sparking romance rumors with tennis player Genie Bouchard in January 2024, though it's unclear where they stand.

The Oppenheim Group owner previously dated real estate agent Chrishell Stause for seven months but they broke up because, as she put it, "our ideas for family" were ultimately not "aligned."

He also dated model Marie Lou Nurk for 10 months before their split in May 2023.

Chrishell Stause

Chrishell married nonbinary musician G Flip in May 2023.

In a May 2022 Instagram video, Chrishell opened up about her relationship with the 27-year-old. "I am attracted to masculine energy and I don't really care about what the physical form is," she explained. "With G, they identify as nonbinary. They really feel like they are a mix. They identify on both sides of male and female. I personally find [it] such a beautiful mix and it's probably why we did connect on such a deep level so quick."

Brett Oppenheim

Brett sparked romance rumors with tattoo artist Samantha Abdul in 2022, after dating Australian model Tina Louise.

Though we caught a glimpse of their relationship in season five, the duo went public with their romance in April 2021 but broke up in December.

Sound like a similar timeline to Jason? Must be twin telepathy!

Christine Quinn

Christine Quinn is married to tech CEO Christian Dumontet—who goes by Christian Richard in the show. They have been married since 2019 and welcomed their first son Christian Georges Dumontet in 2021.

The couple started their own real estate company called RealOpen, which allows buyers to purchase a home using cryptocurrency, according to the company's website. 

In March 2024, Christine accused her husband of domestic violence that "resulted in injury" of their son, she wrote in a restraining order request. He denied her abuse or domestic violence allegations.

Heather Rae Young

Heather Rae Young married HGTV's Tarek El Moussa on Oct. 23, 2021. 

The day before the wedding, Tarek—who was previously married to Flip or Flop co-star Christina Haack—wrote on Instagram, "If you had asked me four years ago I would've told you I was never getting married again and honestly I didn't even think I would find love. Then one day Heather jumped onto my boat, looked at me, smiled and the rest is history. Thank god for that day."

The two welcomed their first baby together in February 2023.

Mary Fitzgerald

Mary Fitzgerald married Romain Bonnet in 2019 during season one of Selling Sunset

But while we got to see the two love birds tie the knot, Mary's rep confirmed to People that they actually had "a civil union a couple of months before the show began filming in June of 2018, but they chose not to tell any of their friends or family, as they were still trying to see if their relationship would work out in the long term."

She shared in April 2023 that she suffered a septic miscarriage.

Chelsea Lazkani

She married Jeff Lazkani in 2017 but filed for divorce in March 2024 over irreconcilable differences.

They share two children: 5-year-old Maddox Ali Levon, and 3-year-old Melia Man.

Emma Hernan

Emma is single and ready to mingle! 

The real estate agent revealed to Today that she is "single and dating" and "open to a relationship," adding that she is "open to something moving a little bit more serious."

So what happened to Selling Sunset property developer Micah McDonald? After being seen flirting it up in season five, Emma says they still talk and "have a great relationship."

"TBD what happens with that," she told Today.

Amanza Smith

Amanza, who has two children with ex-husband and NFL star Ralph Brown, keeps her relationship status on the DL.

In an April 2022 E! News interview, she revealed that she's been in a secret relationship.

"That's the one thing that I've been able to keep a secret, so now it's almost like a goal," she said. "I'm glad that it's gone this long and if it comes out, it comes out. But it's almost fun to keep that private."

But by the following August, Amanza made things Instagram official.

Maya Vander

Maya Vander has been married to her husband David Miller since 2017 and they went on to welcome children Aiden Vander and Elle Vander.

In December 2021, Maya tragically lost her third child during a stillbirth at 38 weeks pregnant. In May 2023, the pair welcomed a baby girl named Emma.
