Gretchen Rossi Dresses Her 6-Month Baby Bump for Capitol Hill

The Real Housewives of Orange County mama-to-be is advocating for a cause close to her heart.

Did Gretchen Rossi just take a page out of Lisa Vanderpump's style playbook? We've seen The Real Housewives of Orange County alum in formal gowns during her pregnancy, along with athleisure and lingerie.

But Gretchen's latest look is perfect for an afternoon on Capitol Hill. She recently advocated for a bill that would require health insurance to provide treatment for infertility, the same way other diseases and health problems are covered.

"This little girl growing inside me has given me the passion and motivation to stand up, use my platform and my voice to make some noise and try to change this," she wrote in her heartfelt post on Instagram: "We have some big ideas & campaigns coming up so please be on the lookout so you can do your small part to help (the close to 7 million couples) struggling with infertility!"

The six-month pregnant Gretchen looked stunning in sensible BCBG pumps and she dressed her bump in a business-like green sheath dress with a pussy bow neckline — just like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills queen LVP (and actual royalty Kate Middleton).

Today I am 6 months pregnant! 🙌🏻 I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by. I am truly loving every minute of being pregnant (even the hard stuff) because I don’t know if I will ever feel a little life growing inside me again. I wake up everyday with massive gratitude for this miracle that God has blessed us with! 🙏🏻 However all these amazing emotions I get to feel everyday, I realize so many women and couples might never feel because of not having the financial means to fight infertility and do things like IVF. This breaks my heart 💔 and is not ok 😤 This little girl growing inside me has given me the passion, & motivation to stand up, use my platform and my voice to make some noise and try to change this! Infertility was diagnosed as a disease and we need to demand that our insurance companies start to cover the prohibitive costs of infertility treatments! We all have the opportunity to have a voice in this! So please join me and the many others that are on a mission to change legislation on this topic! Start reaching out to your local senators and asking them to pass the “Access to Infertility Treatment and Care Act” that Senator @corybooker from New Jersey initiated! (Sidenote: This is not about politics or a political post this is about basic human rights that we all should have when it comes to insurance companies covering a disease 👍🏻) ————————————————————————-I went and meet with the Senator today to thank him for creating this monumental Bill and to find out how I / we can help pass this Bill! It is amazing to see a man fighting for these types of rights! We have some big ideas & campaigns coming up so please be on the lookout so you can do your small part to help (the close to 7million couples) struggling with infertility! We can do this!! We can enact change if we all come together! 💪🏻 ——————————————— Swipe left 👈🏻 Glam by me today💄 Dress from @amazonfashion shoes from @bcbgmaxazria

Gretchen also kept the positive vibes going when she shared in the comments how she deals with folks who write judgmental things about the size of her bump. "I just ignore and delete the negative comments! All that matters is that the baby is healthy and good and the doc said she is doing great! I am healthy and on track with my weight as well! So that's all that matters," she wrote.
