Dr. Simone Whitmore and Cecil Whitmore have shared everything about their lives with fans since the very first season of Married to Medicine. However, there is still lots more to learn about the couple.
Case in point: In the May 9 episode of Married to Medicine, Cecil reflected on his living situation after graduating college as he and Dr. Simone talked about being nearly empty nesters with one son, Michael, starting his freshman year at Lee University, and their eldest son, Miles, working while living at their home.
Cecil told his wife that he never believed in having your children move out the moment they turn 18 since he himself lived in the garage apartment at his mother's house after graduating college. "You would still be in the garage apartment above your mom's house if somebody hadn't snatched you up out of there called S-I-M-O-N-E," Dr. Simone told her husband.
The OBGYN went on to describe what made it so tempting for Cecil to stay in that living arrangement and why he now doesn't mind his son continuing to live with them. "His mom was cooking and doing his laundry while he was in the garage apartment," Dr. Simone said in an interview during the episode. "If Cecil had his way, Miles would be there indefinitely. There would be no expiration date to anything."
Cecil took to Twitter as the episode aired to playfully respond to his wife's comments and set the record straight on why he actually left his mom's house. "Truth is when I left the garage apartment I moved to Boston to work in Finance [and] Simone was a resident," Cecil tweeted in response to a fan who thought his wife was being shady. He added that Dr. Simone wasn't making much money at the time and that he was actually "making more."
Cecil also revealed in that chat with his wife on Married to Medicine that the thing that had him really feeling blue was the passing of the family's dog, Sam, in March 2020. "Dropping Michael off and him not being here is one thing. Miles working and not being at the house is another thing," Cecil said. "But Sam not being here, damn."
He added in an interview during the episode that Sam's passing "came out of nowhere." "One morning, I took him out to walk, and I could tell he was breathing really hard," Cecil recalled. "I just never thought when I took him to the vet, he would never come back home."
Dr. Simone told Cecil that she would be there for him during this difficult time, and he agreed with her that she had been better about putting her work aside to spend time with him during the pandemic.
The couple paid tribute to Sam as this episode of Married to Medicine aired with Dr. Simone writing on Twitter, "@CecilCWhitmore truly misses Sam! Sam was an important part of our family."
The entire Whitmore family got to reunite for Mother's Day on May 9. "The perfect Mother's Day!" Dr. Simone captioned a collection of photos with her husband and sons on Instagram. "God gave me the perfect Team."
