Revealing that Romain has expressed his desire to become a father, Mary said: ‘I think Selling Sunset viewers took it the wrong way when were filmed having argument about about having another kid.
‘Everyone thought that I wanted to right away because my age, but I’m the opposite! Romain is the one that wants to have kids and and I’m like “I love you, so I’ll consider it.”‘
In order to allow the couple more time to make a decision, Mary revealed that she has had her fertility tested and plans to freeze her eggs once she has the time.
She explained: ‘It’s something I am planning to do like very soon, so hopefully people will be able to see that in season four.’

One thing that the couple are in full agreement in, however, is that if they do have any children, it won’t be anytime soon.
‘I just think it’s it’s unfair to bring a child into the world right now,’ Mary reasoned. ‘Given how busy we both are, we barely see each other. It just wouldn’t be the right time.
‘We might do it within the next couple years… but If it’s up to me? No! But I’m not the only one in this relationship.’

Selling Sunset viewers saw Mary’s relationship with Romain come under question when Chrishell Stause questioned their 12 year age gap and if the French model was relying on Mary financially.
Brushing off the comments, Mary said: ‘I really don’t see the age difference that much!
‘I think what played on my mind more than anything is the conflict between Roman and Davina.’
Tense times: Selling Sunset viewers saw Mary’s wedding to Romain shrouded with drama as she fell out with coworkers Davina Potraz and Christine Quinn over the guestlist
As fans will remember, tensions ran high on the show when Romain banned Davina Portraz from attending their wedding after she criticised the engagement ring he had bought for Mary.
Hurt at being the only member of The Oppenheim Group not invited to the big day, Davina and Christine Quinn lashed out at Mary for not overturning the ban.
Reflecting on the drama caused by the decision, Mary exclaimed: ‘It just never died!
‘The conflict that it caused me in work with my coworkers and then with him… I was just trying to do what was right and be a mediator and not ruffle feathers.
‘But I also have to stand by my man. So I mean that caused some some difficulty for sure. To put it lightly!’

Mary has been using the lessons learned from all the drama to give advice to co-star Heather Rae Young, who is planning her own wedding to Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa.
‘Heather and I have talked about their big day’, Mary revealed. ‘They are the cutest couple ever and they are just so happy.
‘They are following along with my advice, which is just do what’s right for you. Don’t listen to what other people say. Don’t be pressured by what other people want.
‘It’s their day and their special moment and they just need to do what’s right, whether it’s filmed or not filmed, who’s invited and who’s not.’
