The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi may have been fired from the show because she had become an outcast, but it sounds like she isn’t slowing down with what she wants in life. She is continuing to grow her business, and she is still planning her wedding to Slade Smiley. But it sounds like Gretchen wants to have a baby now.
Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley shared their journey to get pregnant on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but they couldn’t get pregnant the natural way. Rossi is 35-years-old, but Slade is now 40, so they are having some trouble. They have announced that they are trying the IVF process to have a child.
According to a new Celebeat report, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is now revealing that the pregnancy process is very painful.
“As we begin to age, we want to make sure that we’ve done everything possible to ensure a healthy baby,” Slade has revealed about the IVF process, hinting that he doesn’t want his child to go through the struggles that his son Grayson has been dealing with.
Grayson suffers from brain cancer, and he has tried to be there for his son. Gretchen Rossi has revealed that it is painful to go through the IVF process, even though this is what they both want.
“Actively pulling the trigger to make a baby is very powerful,” Gretchen has said, adding, “You go through every step together. As I’m crying and putting in shots that are very painful, Slade is right there with me.”
Even though Gretchen Rossi isn’t filming The Real Housewives of Orange County, she has been filming various shows. According to The Inquisitr, she has been hinting that fans should keep an eye out, as she and Slade are returning to the small screen soon.
Gretchen Rossi recently remembered her former partner, Jeff Beitzel, who she was filming with when she joined The Real Housewives of Orange County. He passed away from cancer, and Gretchen started dating Slade shortly after. Even though she is planning on marrying Slade, Rossi still remembers Jeff.
“Today is never an easy day for me because it is the day my sweet Jeff passed. Six years today since this wonderful man left this earth to go to heaven,” Gretchen revealed earlier this month.
“He was such a loving good man who taught me so much about life, and despite all the lies and stories that were told about us, what matters is what he and I knew about our love. I’m so grateful I’m still so close with his kids and I let them know today how proud their Dad would be of them. Love you forever Jeff, and you will forever be missed by many,” Rossi revealed on the anniversary of his death.
