Does RHOM's Dr. Nicole Martin Actually Want to Get Married?
Plus, read about 4-year-old Greyson's adorable explanation for why he wants a new baby sister.
In RHOM Season 6, Episode 3, the Miami power couple took viewers luxury yacht shopping, all while discussing going “round number two” for another baby. Of course, filming occurred before Nicole’s November 2, 2023, announcement that a second “Baby Lopez” was on the way.
But will having a second child strengthen the couple’s plans to reach the altar or delay them further?
Nicole wonders if she’ll remain engaged forever
After exiting one of their prospective yachts, Nicole half-joked about making “wedding plans” after having a second child, to which Anthony responded, “I have not forgotten, darling.”
But the topic of marriage was discussed more in-depth later in the recent episode of RHOM — now airing Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo — when Nicole and her mother, Sirel, talked about all things love and marriage. Nicole brought up the renovations to one of the couple’s several homes and the joys of raising their 4-year-old son, Greyson.
“What more do I need?” Nicole said to her mother. “I know everyone’s like, ‘When are you gonna get married,’ and it’s just like, it’s not a rush for me.”
Nicole elaborated that she and Anthony felt it was “right” to wait, especially since having a second child would be a nice addition to a wedding. Sirel agreed it was best to wait for “the right moment,” adding that weddings could be “such an overrated thing.”
Citing a previous divorce, Nicole maintained that she’d already “been there, done that” and wanted to do things differently with Anthony.
“Maybe I will be forever engaged, maybe I decide to elope,” Nicole told RHOM producers. “I’m very spontaneous like that.”
Nicole weighs out the legal ramifications of not marrying
Sirel noted that Florida state law had strict guidelines concerning relationships and that getting financial support from a partner would be difficult if unmarried. Nicole didn’t have to look far to see that even being married brought forth financial troubles, citing RHOM’s Lisa Hochstein’s tumultuous divorce from Lenny Hochstein as a prime example.
Nicole said Lisa — despite being legally married — was still “trying to figure out” the money-related details of her pending divorce, adding that “financial security doesn’t come from a piece of paper.”
Nicole said she learned the importance of financial independence from her mother.
“Honestly, I’m not worried if Anthony and I broke up,” Nicole told producers. “Obviously, Anthony gives me a very luxurious life, and I would miss my personal pilot. But I know that I’ll be able to take care of myself, plus I’m pretty sure I won’t be single for long.”
Sirel said she was proud of her daughter, especially since she understood the struggles of having a husband leave you high and dry as a single mother, which was previously discussed in RHOM Seasons 4 and 5. In the Season 5 finale, Nicole and her father, Miguel, had a heart-to-heart conversation about Miguel’s not being there as a father figure.
Despite ongoing tensions with Miguel, Nicole later said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she and her father were “in a much better place.”
Greyson wants a little sister
While Nicole values her mother’s advice, her ears are also open to her child and his desire for the family to expand. Earlier in the recent episode, Greyson and his grandmother enjoyed making guacamole at the condo when Nicole returned from her work as an anesthesiologist.
Greyson (oh so adorably) explained that he “made a baby” while at school.
“I would say about six months ago he started asking,” said Nicole after RHOM producers asked if Greyson wanted another sibling. “But, specifically, for a little sister.”
Greyson’s reasoning was pretty legit, too:
“He’s like, ‘If I have a little brother, he’s gonna want the same toys I have, and then I have to share with him. But if I have a little sister, she won’t want my stuff,’” Nicole explained.
No truer words spoken, Greyson.
