Gretchen Rossi is now 36 weeks pregnant and is getting ready to welcome her daughter, Skylar Gray, with fiancé Slade Smiley. She recently shared on Instagram that her due date was July 16, but she will be induced at 39 weeks if she doesn't go into labor before then — making her possible due date July 9. While The Real Housewives of Orange County alum says she "wasn't prepared" for such an early arrival date because she was "going to let her cook for as long as possible," she can find some comfort in a recent 4D ultrasound of her little one.
Gretchen shared a video from her latest ultrasound appointment on Instagram. Alongside a pretty clear image of her baby girl, the mom-to-be wrote, "OMG!! You guys look at this incredible 4D ultrasound of Skylar Gray!! This is the coolest thing ever! The things they can do and see now a days with ultrasounds is truly amazing! Our fabulous Ultrasound Tech (Dawn) said her face is pushed up against my placenta and that’s why her nose is a little distorted and flat in some images, but seriously, how freaking amazing is this? And where did she get those juicy lips from? Lol!"
Check out Gretchen and Slade's daughter below.
Gretchen is definitely feeling grateful for her pregnancy, writing, "I’m still in amazement everyday with this little Bambino growing inside of me! Thank you Lord for blessing us this amazing miracle."
She also paid tribute to her partner Slade on Father's Day: "I fell in love with you ten years ago because of so many amazing characteristics, but one of the characteristics that stood out the most to me was how much you loved your children," she wrote. "I knew then that I wanted you to be the Father to our children one day! And to think we are now just weeks away from you becoming a Father again, but this time to a little baby girl just lights up my heart! She is going to fall so deeply in love with you the same way I have because of all these amazing characteristics you bestow as a man! She is so very lucky to have you as an example of how she should be loved and adored as a women, and to have such a loving, compassionate, & super funny Dad that will do anything to help make her life so very special! I just cannot wait to take on this next chapter with you as parents!"
