As a surprise to no one, Gretchen Rossi loves to get decked out for Halloween. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum proved that she's game to take every opportunity to get dolled up (after all, she did have a full glam session shortly before giving birth) this All Hallows Eve when she donned an adorably magical ensemble — and she got her whole family in the mix. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

On October 29, Gretchen got a head start on Halloween (which doubles as her and longtime love Slade Smiley's birthday) by getting her sweet group together for a magical family costume. In the first series of pics, Gretchen poses with Slade wearing a metallic lavender wig that was cut into a short, shoulder-length bob with bangs. She topped her strands off with a silver unicorn horn, fairy ears and pastel flowers. Her beauty look was just as epic. The former RHOC beauty rocked candy pink lips, frosted eyeshadow, and sparkling diamonds along her face. Is it just us, or does she look really convincing as a unicorn fairy? And did we mention that she has a coordinating manicure? 

Slade (ever the sport) wore a full unicorn head with a rainbow mane. You know — casual. Baby Skylar Gray even joined the party in the ittiest bittiest fairy unicorn princess look complete with a pastel veil and precious knit bloomers.

Happy Birthday to the most amazing partner a girl could ever ask for @sladecbd (yes mine is tomorrow, we are a day apart #scorpios) ————————— People are always asking us what is the secret to our relationship and these next few images and videos are the reason why we work so well together. Slade has always no matter what put my wants and needs first, he is game for all my crazy ideas and shenanigans and always does it with a joyful heart. (I.e. even dressing up as a huge rainbow unicorn head) He literally makes me laugh till it hurts almost every single day and he gives 100% of himself to every part of our relationship. Listen life isn’t perfect and of course we struggle with the hard stuff life sometimes throws at you, but we conquer it all head on, hand in hand, and with each other’s needs as our first priority. That’s the secret... just always putting your partners needs before your own. You see everything else falls into place when you do that (Trust, loyalty, respect, love etc.) ———————- I prayed the Lord would bless me with a man like Slade and he did and then I prayed he would bless us with a family and he has 🙏🏻 So on this very special day I celebrate the love of my life Slade for his unwavering love and commitment to me, our relationship, and now our precious daughter! We love you more then words could ever describe! ❤️😘 #birthday #happybirthday
