Caroline Stanbury Revealed What Happened in Her IVF Journey After RHODubai Wrapped
At BravoCon 2022, the RHODubai cast member shared where she and husband Sergio Carrallo stand in their baby journey.
The Real Housewives of Dubai's Caroline Stanbury and Sergio Carrallo first found love, then came marriage, but they're still waiting to have their first baby together. During BravoCon 2022's "Diving into Dubai" panel on Friday, October 14, Caroline shared an update on her IVF journey and where she and Sergio stand on expanding their family now that Season 1 has wrapped.
"Since the show, I did one more round [of IVF], but none of them worked," the RHODubai wife told attendees at the New York City event. "So, I just [still have] the one egg."
Though Caroline "just got [her] body back," Sergio still wants her to "go for another" round of IVF in hopes they can welcome a little princess of their own. "He wants a girl," she added during the BravoCon panel. "He wants a baby girl, so what do I do?"
Throughout RHODubai's inaugural season, the topic of Caroline having another baby — she’s already a mom to three kids from her first marriage; Sergio doesn’t have children — was an ongoing issue for the couple. After going back and forth about such options as surrogacy and IVF, Caroline eventually agreed to try to carry a baby herself.
“I don’t want to be the oldest mother in history,” the 45 year old said during an August appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, sharing that they have a "fertilized baby" already. "We do have an embryo. Yes, I’m going to carry the embryo.”
When the RHODubai Season 1 finale aired on August 24, the episode-ending update noted that "Baby Carrallo will remain on ice until the end of the year, while Sergio completes an online class…In Sex Education." It's unclear if that timetable is still viable, given her post-filming setback, but they don't seem to have given up hope just yet.
