Gretchen Rossi The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Gretchen Rossi Is Expecting Her First Child With Longtime Boyfriend Slade Smiley!

There’s a bun in the oven!

Former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are expecting their first child together!

The couple announced the news on the Monday, December 17th episode of The Doctors. Just last week Gretchen and Slade were on the program discussing their latest round of IVF last week.

“Yes, finally we have news that we are pregnant!” Gretchen gushed. “It’s so wild. It still doesn’t feel real.”

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

It’s a been a long road for the OC couple. They initially started the IVF process four years ago with little to no success. After losing 14 embryos during their first round of IVF the couple took a break from trying to get pregnant.

However, seven weeks ago they an embryo was implanted and thankfully it’s stuck around. Now Gretchen is pregnant and is dealing with the not so joyous parts of pregnancy: morning sickness.

“These symptoms, I gotta tell you, man,” she said on The Doctors. “I swear they lie to you about morning sickness. It’s all-day sickness. It’s like the worst ever.”

But Gretchen and Slade admit that hearing their baby’s heartbeat for the first time made this entire journey worth it.

“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. “It’s so exciting, but it’s also relief.”

Congrats to Gretchen and Slade!
