Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi has officially entered the world of motherhood! She welcomed her first child, a daughter named Skylar Gray, on Wednesday, July 10, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly.
Gretchen, 40, announced the joyous baby news through her rep.
"Skylar Gray is here. They are doing well. They went in about 9 a.m. for a C-section at a hospital in Orange Country," the rep said.
Skylar is the first baby for the former reality star and her fiancé Slade Smiley. She revealed she was with child in December of last year.
The longtime couple tried with IVF for several years with no success prior to Gretchen successfully getting pregnant.
Gretchen and Slade found out they were having a girl in February after pink confetti shot out of the streamers provided for their gender reveal party.
Gretchen has shared the ups and downs of her journey to motherhood, from complications to Skylar’s first kick, in the months before her delivery.
She suffered a devastating personal loss while pregnant when her grandmother passed away in April.
The first-time parents chose to name their baby Skylar Gray after his youngest son Grayson. Slade also has another son from a previous relationship.
