Geri married her husband, Tony, in August 2007. About a year after, they started trying to have a baby. After some infertility testing, they found out that Tony has a genetic condition that would make having children difficult. Even if they did try IVF, the genetic condition resides on the Y chromosome and would be passed down to any male offspring. Deciding that it was much more important to become parents than to become pregnant, Geri and Tony decided to make an adoption plan. They are anxiously awaiting a match for a domestic infant so they can begin building their family!
