Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Are Expecting their First Child Together!

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Are Expecting their First Child Together!

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi and her long time partner Slade Smiley are happy to announce their expecting their first child together next year!

Gretchen announced the happy news on an episode of The Doctors this week where she spoke openly about her long IVF journey. “Yes, finally we have news that we are pregnant!” she said. “It’s so wild. It still doesn’t feel real.”

Slade, 45 who has two sons, Gavin and Grayson, from previous relationships, added, “And we’re freaked out — but in a good way.”

Gretchen first started the gruelling journey of IVF four years ago, but unfortunately lost 14 embryos after the first round. The couple decided to take a much needed break before trying again and seven weeks ago an embryo was able to be implanted, which is the farthest the couple has been able to get in the process.

Gretchen, 40 also spoke about her pregnancy symptoms so far. “These symptoms, I gotta tell you, man,” she said. “I swear they lie to you about morning sickness. It’s all-day sickness. It’s like the worst ever.”

“All of this has been such an overwhelming journey, and so when you get to those little milestones, you know you’re hearing the heartbeat,” Slade said on the talk show. “It’s so exciting, but it’s also relief.”

The couple’s baby is due in July 2019 and will arrive just a few months after Gretchen and Slade celebrate their 10th anniversary in February.

Congratulations you guys! What fantastic news after what has no doubt been a long and arduous journey!
