Are the Countess and her boyfriend Jacques thinking about starting a family?
On Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York, LuAnn de Lesseps told her teenage daughter Victoria that she and her longterm boyfriend Jacques are thinking about trying to have kids.
"The two of us are thinking about the possibility of having babies,” LuAnn said. “I'm not saying it's going to happen, time will tell and fate will tell."
LuAnn’s daughter Victoria was a little skeptical. “I think you might be over the part of having children again,” Victoria said, before adding that her mother should talk to a doctor to see what the risks are.
The 47-year-old Housewife acknowledged that it might be difficult to get pregnant again, but since her boyfriend Jacques is 10 years her junior, she said she feels like she should be open to trying for kids with him. "I'm not sure that's really something that I want to do."
Ultimately, LuAnn’s daughter was more supportive of the idea that she was, and told LuAnn that she thinks she and Jacques would make cute babies. Aww!
This isn’t the first time that an older RHONY star has talked about having kids again. During Season 4, Ramona Singer had a pregnancy scare during LuAnn’s Natalie Cole concert, although it turned out to just be a false alarm. Ramona’s pregnancy scare became the butt of jokes from former castmember Jill Zarin and LuAnn, who thought that Ramona was mistaking the signs of menopause for pregnancy. (Ramona insisted that it wasn’t menopause, telling Andy Cohen proudly that she is still “regular” with her periods during the Season 4 reunion.)
Whatever happens, LuAnn was open in acknowledging that the idea might raise a few eyebrows from fans. "Fertile myrtle has taken a little wander into the pasture," she said with a laugh.
One thing is for sure: We'd love to see the beautiful babies that would come from LuAnn and Jacques!
The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
