Gretchen Rossi has never been shy to let viewers into her life, and now she's sharing the latest developments in her path to motherhood. As previously reported, Gretchen and her Real Housewives of Orange County fiancee Slade Smiley will appear on The Doctors to discuss his decision to reverse his vasectomy on Monday, January 11.
The episode will feature footage from the medical procedure, as well as the couple discussing their pursuit of IVF, which has been unsuccessful thus far. “Why am I forcing her to go through this process? This is something I can do, I can certainly go in and have the reversal done. We could get pregnant naturally," Slade says, according to a press release. "You’ve sacrificed for us so now it is my turn," he tells his love.
Gretchen reveals that she is looking forward to pursuing motherhood the natural way. “Every woman, as a little girl, thinks about making love to your partner and making a baby naturally. To be able to have that option back, in this situation where we can just try to conceive naturally and be able to make love and have our moment together, is really special for me,” she says.
