By Casey Suglia

A lot has changed for Braunwyn Windham-Burke since she last appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

As the show now heads into Season 18, Braunwyn is giving an update on her life in Nashville with her fiancée, Jennifer Spinner and what is in store for their family.

More specifically, Braunwyn — who is already the mom to seven kids between the ages of 23 and 7 years old with her ex-husband, Sean Burke — revealed that she and Jennifer are trying for more. 

That is, only if Braunwyn's kids are OK with it. As Jennifer said during a recent appearance on Page Six's Virtual Reali-Tea podcast, "If Braunwyn and I were just ourselves, and there were no children in the picture, I think it would be an easy choice for me. Yes, I would go ahead and have another child.

"I want to make sure that [the children] feel like they have agency in this choice because we're not just growing a family with her and I," Jennifer continued. "We're growing a family that already exists and so I just want to make sure that before we make a decision that the younger kids have a say."

The engaged couple also revealed that they have started the process of Jennifer freezing her eggs.

"[I said], 'I know you still feel really young but your eggs aren't,'" Braunwyn explained on the podcast. "[This is] coming from someone who's older and whose eggs are cooked...because we've talked about having a child together...Jen is a great stepmom but there's a part of her that wants to have her own child, her own biological child, and I said, 'If that's something that you want to do, now's the time.'"

While the couple is still waiting on more "yes-es" from Braunwyn's older kids, she did reveal that her little ones are very ready for a new sibling. "I've talked to the little kids about it and they're really excited," Braunwyn said. "They would love that. So we'll see where it lands."

Braunwyn Windham-Burke's Journey with IVF

Braunwyn has been open about her own journey with in-vitro fertilization, or, IVF, to get pregnant with her youngest child, Hazel. "We worked very hard for this little one, 2 years of IVF and many losses to get her, but when I look at her huge smile, her eyes that light up, and her adorable laugh, I can tell you it's all worth it," she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post from February 2020.

In an interview with People in 2019, Braunwyn, at the time, said Hazel would be her last child with Sean. "There's no chance of having baby number eight," she said. "We did IVF for our younger kids. We are out of embryos. We are done."
