Such a lovely day spent celebrating @gretchenrossi and #sladesmiley at their #babyshower today! Looking forward to welcoming little Skylar Grey into the world this summer! You are already loved by so many little one! ???? Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Psalm 137:3 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16 ??

According to People, Gretchen’s white lace gown was designed by Project Runway designer, Michael Costello. Gretchen said in her speech, “I have to say thank you to each and every one of you for being here today. You guys know how long this journey has been for Slade and I. We have been together now for 10 years. We have been trying for a baby for the last four and half years and, oh my gosh, this is such a blessing from the good Lord above.”

Gretchen and Slade had gone through many rounds of IVF. Gretchen thanked the “amazing people” at Southern California Reproductive Center, who guided her through the process. Gretchen joked, “It literally took five men to get me pregnant. They truly have become family there. They helped make our wish of Skylar Gray come true.”

The baby shower was in Laguna Beach, California and it featured a custom flower wall by Mahi Khoshbin Renan and Orange County-based Glamour Flower Boutique. There was an extravagant sculpture of Gretchen and Slade holding a baby, with the name Skylar underneath it when guests walked in. Peggy said, “This is over-the-top. This is beautiful. Look at all the flowers … and the detail … I feel like I’m at a wedding. Lots of love for this little girl.”

Although a wedding may happen down the road for them, Gretchen teased, “We’re not getting married, I hate to burst your bubble. Yes, my dress is white. And we thought about it for a very small second and then I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to have another big party?'”

Even though it wasn’t a wedding, Gretchen and Slade shared a first dance. They had a slow dance to “I Get To Love You” by Ruelle.

Check out some of the photos from Gretchen’s baby shower:

Congrats, Gretchen! Wow, the baby shower looks stunning! So beautiful. I’m happy for Gretchen! She’s been trying to have a baby for a long time and I’m glad it’s finally happening. Babies are such blessings.
