“She absolutely was pregnant and gave birth to her son.”
Months after Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn denied accusations that she faked her pregnancy, the TV personality’s costar and fellow realtor Davina Potratz has once again addressed the rumors.
While appearing on a new episode of Dear Media’s podcast Not Skinny But Not Fat, Davina defended Christine and dismissed skepticism over how she delivered her son, Christian Georges Dumontet, who’s now seven months old.
“Christine was absolutely pregnant,” said Davina. “I saw her belly. She called me from the hospital the day she gave birth. I saw her C-section scar … We were on FaceTime. She absolutely was pregnant and gave birth to her son.”
Christine and her husband Christian Richard, an entrepreneur and the former CEO of defunct online delivery service Foodler, welcomed their first child last May. Although Christine detailed her traumatic delivery on the most recent season of Selling Sunset, some viewers still questioned whether the experience was legitimate, claiming she used a surrogate and lied about it.
The allegations noted Christine’s physical appearance in the days and weeks following her son’s birth. “Why did you fake your pregnancy?” someone wrote in a direct message that Christine posted on Instagram in November. “K y’all are beyond fucking sick,” Christine said in response to the DM.
Davina reiterated Christine’s sentiment during her podcast appearance this week, calling the surrogacy accusations “fucked up” and suggesting Christine was simply able to “bounce back” quickly after delivering Christian.
“Why should someone hate her because that? That’s not fair,” Davina said, adding, “It’s really hurtful, you know, when someone says she didn’t give birth.”
