In March 2023, Martina announced that she was cancer-free; however, the couple was uncertain about proceeding with the adoption process considering recent events.

While Martina was conflicted on their adoption plans, Julia remained in good faith. “I hope that we will soon expand our family,” she told Page Six in December 2023. “Our adoption plans were on hold, but we’re still not closing the door on those plans.”

Flash-forward to today, the RHOM ‘Wife is sharing new details about the expansion of their family and offers a timely update on Martina’s health.
