Who is Mary Fitzgerald from Selling Sunset?
Mary Fitzgerald, 40, is a top realtor with The Oppenheim Group, which sells luxury properties in the Hollywood Hills and is the basis for the show.
The show features her life and relationship with Romain Bonnet, a 28-year-old Wilhelmina model from France.
After graduating from Ball State University in Indiana, Mary began her real estate career in 2008 in the South Bay.
She spent her initial years in the industry working in New York and London.
According to her Oppenheim Group profile, “Mary sets herself apart with unrivaled work ethic, integrity, and honesty.”
Who is her son?
Mary’s son is named Austin, and he is 24 years old. He was first mentioned on season one of Selling Sunset, when Mary tells Romain: “So, babe … you’re not really that much older than my son.”
Season one of Selling Sunset premiered in 2019.
The mom told Screenrant in 2020 that Austin and Romain “get along really well.”
“Romain’s isn’t a father role,” she said at the time.
“Austin doesn’t need that. He’s a grown man.”
Was Mary Fitzgerald’s son in her wedding to Romain?
Austin walked Mary down the aisle during her wedding to Romain.
He appeared to tear up during the episode when he accompanied her during the wedding, and when she and Romain exchanged vows.
When did she get married?
Mary and Romain wed on October 12, 2019, the real estate agent told People.
“It was our dream wedding,” she said. “Neither of us are big, showy kind of people, and we just wanted the people closest to us, where it just felt sincere and comfortable.”
“So that’s what we did.”
She explained that the original planned location of their wedding was at a private home in Los Angeles, which she ended up selling.
“I end up selling my wedding venue on my wedding day, which was amazing: I paused the wedding and sold it in the middle of getting ready,” Mary said.
“Everyone thought I was out of my mind, but I told the seller when he allowed me to book it for the wedding venue that I won’t let the wedding planning or doing it there get in the way of selling it!”
Mary told The Sun in 2020 that she wants to freeze her eggs, as having a child with Romain isn’t their top priority.
“I’ll never say never, just not right now. We are definitely looking forward to our next adventure in flipping homes, this is going to be fun to do together.
“I’m going to freeze my eggs just in case we want to start a family, but we are far too busy and focused on our careers to prioritize this at the moment.”
