Gretchen Rossi Talks Wedding Plans & Says A Baby Might Come First!


Gretchen Rossi is now officially engaged to Slade Smiley, but in a new interview, Gretchen reveals the couple may have a baby before they walk down the aisle and say ‘I do.’ “We might do a baby before a wedding,” Gretchen tells RadarOnline. “I haven’t made that decision yet.”

“I’m struggling because, yes, I really want a baby and right now is good timing to have a baby,” she admits. “I’m 35, so I definitely need to start thinking about it. But there’s this other side to me that feels like once you have a baby, it’s really hard to go back and plan a wedding.”

Viewers will see Gretchen propose to Slade on The Real Housewives of Orange County. “Slade and I are really just enjoying our engagement right now, so I think that the fans are going to be really excited to see how that all went down. It was a very special, intimate moment and I put a lot into planning that for him, so I’m excited for the fans to see that.”

So does the couple have a date set? “As far as the wedding goes, I don’t know when that’s going to happen,” she explains. “We haven’t sat down and picked a wedding date.”

“I’m so busy right now with work and my companies that we’re just kind of enjoying being engaged,” she adds. “And look, it took me four years to get engaged. So who knows how long that’s going to take. There’s a lot of things you have to think about, so I just haven’t figured it out if the baby or the wedding is coming first.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
