Gretchen Rossi Debating Having Child Before Marrying Slade Smiley

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi may be engaged to Slade Smiley — but she is considering having his baby before the two take a stroll down the isle.

"We might do a baby before a wedding," Gretchen reportedly told "I haven’t made that decision yet." It appears Gretchen is currently weighing all of her options before making a big decision.

"I’m struggling because, yes, I really want a baby and right now is good timing to have a baby," she said. "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."

Fans of the couple may have to settle for a long engagement, though Gretchen's fans should be okay with that, and they will know that it is worth the wait.

"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," she says. "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."

The couple hasn't even set a date for the wedding, so are odds in favor for the baby first? "As far as the wedding goes, I don’t know when that’s going to happen," she admits. "We haven’t sat down and picked a wedding date."

For Gretchen, she seems pretty happy being engaged for the time being. "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."
