Gretchen Rossi Planning IVF To Have Baby With Fiancé Slade Smiley!

Gretchen Rossi has revealed that she is planning IVF to have a baby with her fiancé Slade Smiley. “God willing, I can get pregnant in 2018!,” the former Real Housewives of Orange County star told The Daily Mail.

The couple has struggled to conceive a child together, Rossi has admitted.

“It is no secret that we tried IVF in the past and Slade also had his vasectomy reversed but we are going to try again to see if we can get pregnant,” said Rossi. “We have had good feedback from our doctors about our bodies.

“I know that Slade and I would make great parents because we both love kids and I feel like I am a great mom to our three dogs, so, let’s give it a shot,” she said.

While Rossi has no kids, Smiley fathered two sons during a previous relationship.

Back in 2016, Rossi got candid about her fertility struggles. "We have been full-steam ahead on trying to start a family. It's been a good two to two-and-a-half years of really trying actively to have a baby. That's been, quite honestly, very difficult on us because he had a vasectomy and so we couldn't get pregnant naturally super quick," Rossi told PEOPLE at that time.

"So we did IVF first and we had such great results at the beginning and then the day before they were supposed to implant all the embryos – we had 14 embryos – basically what happened was they arrested, which means they all died off. That was very disheartening and a very difficult time for us and it was just emotionally, physically and mentally extremely draining."

Though pregnancy has been an ongoing journey for the couple, Rossi is optimistic about having children of her own, telling PEOPLE: "I hope the Lord blesses us with a baby."
