2016 may be the year that Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley finally become parents together. According to a new report, Slade has had a reverse vasectomy and the pair are now working towards parenthood. Their journey will be documented on an upcoming episode of CBS' The Doctors.
"For Gretchen’s birthday this year, Slade really did surprise her with the best gift ever,” an insider told RadarOnline, viaThe Daily Mail. “The big gift he gave her was that he told her he had decided to reverse his vasectomy for her."
Slade has already underwent surgery, and a source adds that "she will get pregnant in no time. They find each other irresistible. She is looking forward to spending the rest of her life with him and is extremely excited about getting pregnant. This is a dream come true and the two of them are very happy."
When contacted by The Daily Dish, a rep for the Real Housewives of Orange County alum could only confirm that Slade had a "medical issue" that will be featured on the show.
Gretchen has never been shy about wanting to have a baby with Slade, who she popped the question to back in 2013. Back in September 2014, Gretchen shared that the couple was using IVF to try and get pregnant. "Actively pulling the trigger to make a baby is very powerful," Gretchen said at the time. "You go through every step together. As I’m crying and putting in shots that are very painful, Slade is right there with me."
