Now that Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Tamra and Eddie Judge’s fairy tale wedding is behind them, they newlywed couple is looking ahead to the next step in life together. And, what better way to signify their new unity than by bringing a new baby into their home?
When asked by The Miami Herald whether she and Eddie are open to surrogacy, Tamra said, “It’s something that Eddie and I are considering.”
Even before their June nuptials, Tamra and Eddie were weighing their options in terms of expanding their brood — which currently includes Tamra’s four children from previous marriages. In June 2012, Tamra revealed on her Facebook page that she is no longer able to bear children on her own due to treatment for cervical cancer.
“Doctor has warned me that even if I got pregnant at my age I probably would not be able carry a baby after the procedure I had… We have talked about adoption and surrogacy if we feel we want more kids.”
Now it seems like the ball is in Eddie’s court.
“If he really, really thinks he needs a baby, like if he wakes up [and wants a child] in the next year,” Tamra, who turns 46 next month, told People Magazine earlier this month. “I’m not going to be 70 years old and going to [drop the kids off] at preschool. I’m not doing it.”
Even if Eddie and Tamra decide not to expand their family, both will be happy.
“He loves my kids, he’s fulfilled with them. He calls them ‘our kids,'” Tamra said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live in July.
Besides, Tamra and Eddie’s have another “baby” to keep them occupied for a while: their gym, C.U.T. Fitness.
“I have always worked out. It was always one of my dreams to have my own gym,” Tamra told Ok! Magazine before her gym’s grand opening in March.
