Gretchen and Slade Smiley spoke to Life & Style about their future together and the fact that they want to have a whole slew of babies. “We want to be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!" Gretchen says of their baby plans. "That's the goal.”
So exactly how many tykes are we talking here? “At this point, we want to have, like, 26 kids," Gretchen says. So that's one for every letter in the alphabet? Maybe each one will get a letter instead of a name.
And just so Gretchen knows, Brad and Angie have six kids, and only three of those are biological. So 26 bambinos would definitely put Brangelina's brood to shame.
As for whether she and Slade will get married first or have kids first, she still isn't sure. “We’re kind of seeing which is going to come first, so we’ll see,” she says.
Regarding gender, Slade — who already has two boys — is hoping to add a little lady to the mix. “It would be really fun to have a girl," Gretchen agrees. "She would be such a daddy’s girl.”
And speaking of extremely important life decisions, Gretchen says she hasn't yet chosen her wedding dress for their upcoming nuptials, but she has started trying on dresses. "I went to Kleinfeld in NYC and tried on a dress that made me cry a little, so I might get that," she says. “I decided I’m going to have 12 dresses!" Why not?
So between 12 dresses and 26 kids, Gretchen and Slade apparently aren't ones for moderation.
