If you are like us, you have probably wondered: How old is Gretchen Rossi from Real Housewives of Orange County? After all, it's so hard to tell the ages of these RHOC stars! So what is Gretchen Rossi's age?
Gretchen Rossi is one of the oldest Real Housewives of Orange County stars, but not necessarily in age. After all, she’s the only OC housewife who hasn’t been married, and she doesn’t have any children.
So just how old is Gretchen Rossi?
Born on October 30, 1978, Gretchen is just 34-years-old, making her the second youngest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (32-year-old Lydia McLaughlin has her beat by two years). She joined the show back in Season 4 while engaged to millionaire Jeff Beitzel, who passed away in 2008 after battling leukemia.
In 2009, Gretchen began dating Slade Smiley, who’s appeared on Real Housewives of Orange County since Season 1. The couple became engaged on April 14, 2013, after Gretchen proposed to Slade atop the AT&T building in Los Angeles.
With marriage on the horizon, we’re thinking babies won’t be too far behind for Gretchen.
“It’s a cliché, but it is the truth that at this point I just want a healthy baby,” Gretchen told Starpulse back in January. “However, that said, Slade has two boys and as fun as it would be to have a girl in the family, I’ve always had the feeling that I would have boys. It could be fun to have a girl to change things up though.”
Gretchen certainly has her hands full filming RHOC, running her own accessories and cosmetics line, and launching a swimwear line for Luxe by Lisa Vogel. But we have to say, getting pregnant would certainly make for a great storyline for next season on Real Housewives of Orange County!
