Ariana Madix may be changing her mind about having kids.

On this week's episode of Vanderpump Rules, Madix, 38, chats with costar Lala Kent, 33, about continuing to share a house with ex Tom Sandoval, 40, which she says has been awkward when her boyfriend Daniel Wai comes to visit. The conversation then prompts Kent to ask if this new relationship has made Madix change her mind about having kids.

"I mean, he's the first person that I've met that I'm actually like, 'Oh, is that what that would be like?' " Madix admits. "I just think he's opened my mind and opened my eyes to a lot of different possibilities that I could not see."

In a confessional, Madix discusses how her past relationship may have been a barrier to her desire to have kids.

"In retrospect, Tom being my partner affected my feelings on having kids a lot more than I thought it did," she says. "I feel like with Dan, I've kind of had my eyes open to the fact that there are different types of partners out there who would actually be a real 50/50 partner, or if I can only give 10% that day, he's ready to give 90."

In past seasons of Vanderpump Rules, Madix has been adamant that she does not want to have kids. However, she chose to freeze her eggs when she was in a relationship with Sandoval, explaining her decision in an episode of season 10.

"Two years ago, I froze my eggs and I was able to retrieve 26 of them, which is really, really good. Like, incredible. Good job, ovaries," she said in a confessional on the April episode.

"My stance on all things related to being pregnant [and] giving birth has not really changed," Madix added. "It's just that I don't like biological clocks having the power to run anything. And those eggs, they are more viable as fertilized embryos."

Sandoval previously expressed a desire to have kids but seemed a little more reluctant during his chat with the model.

"When Ariana asked me to fertilize her eggs, I was excited," he said in a confessional. "I was like, 'Yeah, sure, I'll do it!'"

He then added, "Why would Ariana want me to fertilize her eggs when we might or might not have kids, whatever she decides?"

In the conversation, Sandoval asked her, "Are we ever gonna even use these eggs for anything?" to which she replied, "Maybe, maybe not."
