Selling Sunset star Mary Fitzgerald is often at the centre of the main action thanks to her divisive romance with French chef Romain Bonnet.
Season two of the Netflix reality series comes to a grand and magical close with Mary and Romain’s fairytale wedding after weeks of stressing about finding a venue – and the wedding invites, ahem, Davina.
While we know all there is about Mary and Romain’s love story, there’s actually very little we do know about the luxury real estate agent’s life as a mother.
The 39-year-old’s latest Instagram post shows Mary chilling by the pool with her grown-up son, alongside the caption: ‘Such an amazing day hanging with my son while in Arizona. Missed this guy so much!! 💕💕💕 #sellingsunset #familytime #motherslove #misshim #love #motherson #poolday.’
And Mary’s son did actually make an appearance at the wedding if you were eagle-eyed enough to spot him.
Who is Mary’s son?
In season one, Mary revealed she was a mother to a son from a previous relationship.
Her only child, Austin Babbitt, did not appear on camera at the time – save for a few photos – and his father’s identity has not been disclosed.

However, Mary did share the heartbreaking truths about her past marriages and explained: ‘I’ve been married twice before. My first husband passed away and my second husband, it just didn’t work out. It wasn’t the right relationship.’
During her bachelorette party in season two, Mary let slip that she fell pregnant the first time she had sex – so that tells you all you need to know about that.
Austin finally made his cameo on Selling Sunset and snuck into shot when he walked Mary down the aisle at her wedding. Austin was proudly flanked on one arm and her father on the other.
What’s the age gap between Romain and Mary’s son?
Mary went on to address the small age gap between Romain, who was 25 in season one, and Austin who was 21.
‘You’re 25, you’re not really that much older than my son,’ she said.
In a confessional, the Oppenheim Group agent continued: ‘I did have him when I was very young, I was 16.
‘I’ve been a single mum ever since. I don’t see Romain ever stepping in as like a father figure and Austin doesn’t need that, but they get along great.’

Do Mary and Romain want to have children?
Mary is currently 39 and previously stated she would only have children if she was sure Romain, 26, was ‘the one’.
And well, they have gone on to marry so perhaps the newlyweds will start a family in their own time.
In a season one episode, Romain admitted: ‘I definitely want children in five to 10 years.’
But Mary said: ‘I’ve been there, I’ve done that. I would only consider having another child if it’s someone I absolutely love and it’s very important to them.’
She then asked Romain: ‘So what happens if you’re not ready for another two years and then it’s too late?’ to which he responded: ‘I don’t know.’
