Gretchen Rossi is getting ready to give birth to her baby daughter Skylar Gray with longtime fiancé Slade Smiley and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the excited parents-to-be have planned a massive baby shower that is taking place on Sunday, May 19, in Laguna Beach!
According to a source close to 40-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County alum, “Gretchen and Slade have planned a beautiful party that is being held at Seven 7 Seven this weekend.”
“It is more like a wedding than it is a baby shower and they went way over the top with all the details. The venue has a waterfall and there will be different tents set up with different themes.”
“They decided to do co-ed because they have so many friends and want their husbands to celebrate with them. They also really wanted to invite their gay and lesbian friends, as they both are so close with so many people in the LGBTQ community.”
So, will there be any current housewives at Rossi’s event? Needless to say, Tamra Judge did not get an invitation. However, the source told Radar that Rossi and her hunky baby-daddy have invited “lots” of housewives!
“Emily Simpson, Joanna Kruppa and several other of the ladies have been invited to the shower. Gretchen has also invited her BFF Courtney Sixx and Motley Crue rocker husband Nikki Sixx. Gretchen and Courtney are both going through the pregnancy thing together.”
But it isn’t only RHOC cast mates that have been invited, as Rossi and Smiley are going to have nearly every single housewives franchise represented at the shower!
As fans know, Rossi struggled to conceive a baby with Smiley for years. After undergoing IVF multiple times, Rossi’s dream of becoming a mother became a reality after appearing on The Doctors.
“Gretchen and I will find out if it was a success in 30-60 days and are just so grateful for everything that we have and for the family that we are building.I cannot wait to be a dad again!”
And now she wants to give back, as Rossi is campaigning with Senator Cory Booker to help fund more affordable IVF treatments.
“Gretchen is so blessed but knows how hard it was for her. She really wants to make it easier for other’s who are going through what she went through. She is just filled with so much love and appreciation for everything.”
