Real Housewives of New York star LuAnn de Lesseps, 47, was serious when she told her 17-year-old daughter Victoria that she and boyfriend Jacques Azoulay wanted to have a baby together. In fact, she was so serious that she’s now submitting to acupuncture to increase her chances of conceiving.

In an interview with Life & Style, LuAnn explained that she does indeed want to have a baby with Jacques because she thinks he’d become a “great father,” but that they’ve had no luck getting pregnant so far. A fertility doctor told her that her chances of having a new little one were less than 5 percent, so she’s upping her odds by submitting to acupuncture.

“Apparently, acupuncture increases your chances by like 50 percent,” she explained. “The great thing about being in your 40s these days is that there are options … I feel very lucky because of that.”

Do you think acupuncture will help LuAnn get pregnant? Why or why not? Sound off in the comments section below!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
