The couple has sparked rumors that they are starting to plan a family together after the comments that they made during the most recent episode of their show LeAnn & Eddie.
After Rimes’ mother Belinda tells her daughter that she struggled to get pregnant with her, it made the singer start to think about her own maternal clock.
“I had a lot of issues and the doctors told me that I would never have a child — you were a miracle. They don’t know how I got pregnant,” Belinda said, Fox News reports.
“I knew my mom had difficulty having me, but I never really knew how difficult it was,” Rimes confessed during an interview on the show. “Eddie and I have talked about waiting a little bit longer before we try to have kids.
“It had never popped into my head that maybe I will have the same trouble that she did… Given my mom’s history, it does make you wonder if I waited too long. If I find out I can’t have kids, that will be really tough.”
The “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” singer then went to see her doctor to find out what the chances are that she can conceive.
Cibrian already has two children from his former marriage to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, but he may be a dad to baby No. 3 in the near future if Rimes gets her way, though he didn’t seem overly enthusiastic about the prospect of adding to his brood.
“It truly hurts when you feel like you and your husband are not on the same page for something that is so important… I know we were not planning on having a child right now, but I also do not want to miss what possibly could be my only opportunity to have a child naturally,” Rimes told her husband.
However, the Playboy Club actor did step up to the plate and later in the show confessed that he wanted to have kids with his wife.
“I mean, is there ever a perfect time? I know I do want to have a child with LeAnn and if this is a decision we have to make right now because of her fertility, then I say we should just do it.”
