Gretchen Rossi is one busy lady! The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 star is hard at work on several business ventures, wants to have a baby with boyfriend Slade Smiley, and might, just might, be planning a wedding soon, according to Starpulse.
Let’s focus on the fun stuff, shall we? Gretchen has already said she and Slade want to have a baby, but does she want a boy or a girl?
“It’s a cliché, but it is the truth that at this point I just want a healthy baby,” she said. “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.”
If she does end up with a little lady, this self-professed girly-girl already has a head start on her shopping. “I can’t lie over the years I’ve been out with my friends buying things for their little girls and have bought a few things I could not resist along the way.” Too cute!
Now that a baby might be in the future, Gretchen said, she and Slade have been talking about marriage more seriously. “I don’t feel like we need the license to show that we are in a loving committed relationship,” she said. “However, the more the idea of kids comes into the conversation, the more I’ve really thought about the idea of marriage as a possibility.”
While Gretchen is clearly in no rush to tie the knot, that fact that she is “100% behind gay marriage” has also influenced her decision to not get married yet. “Slade and I actually have discussed on more than one occasion holding off on getting married until the day when our friends have the legal right to get married too,” she said.
What a gal! We can’t wait to see what the future brings for her and Slade!
