Gretchen Rossi And Slade Smiley Are Still Trying To Have A Baby Using IVF; Gretchen Says “It’s A Very Arduous, Hard Thing To Go Through”

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley reverently revealed their summer plans and the Real Housewives of Orange County couple admitted that will continue on their journey with IVF.

“We’re focused on having a baby. That’s our summer plans," she recently told Us Weekly, adding just how "hard" undergoing IVF has been. "It’s a very arduous, hard thing to go through. I’m so thankful I have an amazing partner to go through it with. We are pushing through it, and hopefully we will have an announcement that we are pregnant.”

Smiley applauded his fiancée for her strength throughout the pair’s in vitro fertilization attempts. “I have to give Gretchen huge props, because it is such a hard, difficult process,” he said. “A lot of the burden falls on the woman going through the IVF process, and not only has she embraced that challenge but she’s using that to be an advocate for other women who are struggling with IVF and can’t get pregnant. I’m so impressed how she jumped right in [and] became a voice for every woman. I’m very proud of her.”

Rossi emphasized that they rely on a broad support system to keep them going: “Truthfully it’s a partnership. We have an amazing doctor, and that makes a difference. It’s a very confusing, hard, difficult process. It takes a lot of good people around you.”
