We have another Bravo baby on the way and she’s right around the corner! Mom and dad (former OC stars) Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are nearing the finish line of Gretchen’s pregnancy and are prepping by having details finalized – including the baby name.

The Bravolebs are naming their soon-to-be-born daughter, Skylar Gray, in honor of Smiley’s cancer-stricken son Grayson. We all remember the sad story of Grayson, who often got brought up at reunions as Slade had trouble paying his ex-wife when his job went south and the medical bills started to pile up.

Grayson is battling brain cancer to which Slade described the situation as having “a lot of complications, but he’s in regular physical therapy.” Both he and Gretchen feel it’s only fitting to have their daughter have a tie-in with her half brother Grayson as both children have been miracles.

Per Gretchen: “(Grayson) has been this angel on earth, and he is just this unbreakable, amazing, little man. What a lot of people don’t know about our embryo, and now our Skylar Gray, is that she actually self-corrected herself in the embryonic state. She went from two cells to five cells, and normally when it goes from two to five cells it’s not a genetically sound embryo … but she literally pushed that cell aside and went back to four and self-corrected herself.”

Here’s hoping for a happy and healthy baby! I think the name Skylar Gray is beautiful and love the family tie-in. Congrats to the soon to be parents!
