Gretchen, 40, posted a video on Tuesday, March 12, of her tearing up in bed.
“I’m totally crying!,” the former Real Housewives of Orange County star exclaimed. “I just felt her kick for the first time right now. I’m crying so hard. This is such an ugly cry!”
Her fiancé Slade Smiley happily felt her belly as Gretchen continued to bawl.
The kick happened in the early morning hours of their gender reveal party, which took place on Sunday, February 24.
“I think she was so excited for today’s reveal that she kicked!,” Gretchen said. “That was the coolest experience I’ve ever felt in my whole life. Hi my baby girl, we feel you, I know you’re there!”
Gretchen and Slade announced their pregnancy on Monday, December 17. The Bravo star has been about her devastating IVF journey, where she lost 14 embryos over the course of several years.
Baby number one is due this July.
