It's the moment we've been waiting for... almost.

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi and fiancé Slade Smiley are eagerly awaiting the July arrival of the first child together, whom they've already named Skylar Gray. And now Gretchen is sharing an intimate moment for their family, which is about to include one more member.

"This was the very first photo Slade and I took together once we found out we were pregnant with our little baby girl!" Gretchen wrote on Instagram. "We wanted to remember this moment forever, as it was one of best days of our lives after four long arduous years of trying to conceive. We have this incredible photo shoot by the talented  [Calhan Shanks] hanging in our home now and it reminds us everyday of just how blessed we are."

The photo was included in Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine  and Gretchen revealed that it was written by a face familiar to Flipping Out fans. "Thank you [Jenni Pulos] for the beautiful article, and to our sweet friend [Mark Kurian} for including our story in your stunning magazine! We feel blessed to be able to share our story with so many others who are struggling to conceive, and hopefully encourage them to never give up hope!"

As Gretchen mentioned in her Instagram post, the two went through a long process to get pregnant. The couple started IVF four years ago but lost 14 embryos after the first round. Slade also underwent a reverse vasectomy. After an embryo was able to be implanted, the couple announced the pregnancy in December and revealed they would be welcoming a baby girl during an epic gender reveal party in February.

This is the first child for Gretchen and third child for Slade; he is already a father to sons Gavin and Grayson.
