The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi opens up to Life & Style about her baby dreams with beau Slade Smiley. “We talk about babies every day; I wouldn’t be surprised if they come before a wedding or engagement,” the reality TV star, 33, shares.
Slade, who’s reversing the vasectomy he had years ago, is on board and excited to welcome more children. “We’re redoing our house and figuring out where to put the nursery,” says Gretchen, who hopes for a boy and a girl with Slade, 38. “I’m so excited about playing dress-up and having matching outfits with a girl, and I would be just as blessed to have a little boy, too. We’re very excited about starting a family.”
Despite asking Gretchen’s dad for permission to propose on Housewives, Slade has yet to pop the question. “I don’t feel this overwhelming need to get engaged or married right now,” says Gretchen. But she does have the baby bug! “We both know we’re ready.”
This will be the first child for Gretchen, while Slade is already dad to sons Gavin, 22, and Grayson, 11.
