Skylar Gray is The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi's first child — but she is Gretchen's fiancé's Slade Smiley's third. The two welcomed daughter Skylar on July 10 after conceiving with IVF following a long struggle with infertility. Needless to say, the two are overjoyed and soaking up every moment with their baby girl.
Accompanying a sweet picture and video of Slade holding Skylar, Gretchen wrote, "Daddy and his little princess! [9 weeks] tomorrow. I wanted nothing more then to have a little girl, I prayed and asked the Lord to bless us with her because of moments and videos like these.....I knew this would be the case if Slade had a little girl!"
She explained, "He treats me like a Queen and loves and adores me so much, I just could not wait to see how he would be with our little girl. I already knew what a wonderful father he was because of how he is with his boys, but I have fallen more and more in love with him again seeing how much of a devoted, loving father he is to his little girl. (oh and he helps change diapers and feeds her in the middle of the night so I can get sleep)."
Gretchen concluded her post: "I am living my dream, with the most incredible man and now the most precious sweetest gift I have ever been given."
Skylar's oldest brother, Gavin, got married in May. And Skylar's middle name, Gray, pays tribute to her other brother, Grayson, who is still fighting a battle with brain cancer after being diagnosed in 2006.
