Gretchen Rossi’s Milk Bath Maternity Shoot in Lingerie Is Total Luxury

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum “can’t be basic”.

It’s happeninnnnng! Well, almost. We are counting down the days until The Real Housewives of Orange County alum, Gretchen Rossi, gives birth to her first baby girl, but in the meantime, the mom-to-be is serving up some rather epic maternity style. It’s no secret that Gretchen is all about that glam. From her fabulously extra, lace baby shower dress to her goddess-inspired gold gown and itty bitty bikini, Gretchen’s maternity style has been anything but boring. 

How to Watch

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

But on July 2, the blonde beauty shared a behind-the-scenes video of her maternity photo shoot that is, quite frankly, the most luxurious thing we’ve seen all week. At nine months pregnant, the OC-based designer staged a baby-bump shoot wearing a gorgeous, black lace gown (Robe? Negligeé? Who knows!) a milk bath...while surrounded by blooming flowers and rose petals. So, you know — casual. “Just another at the office,” she purred in the quick Instagram vid. Gretchen completed her totally relatable look with a sweeping updo, fierce charcoal smokey eye and a helluva lot of diamonds. Again, same. It seems the first time mom-to-be has found it difficult to chill before she delivers her bundle of joy in a mere eight days (eep!). 

“See I told you guys I would probably have a hard time just relaxing these last few days before she arrives...So I decided I wanted to take a few more pictures with her in my belly to remember this very special moment in time! Except I can’t just be basic with my vision. I want to do things like lay in lingerie in a milk bath with roses!” 

Obviously, next time we have some time to kill and some nerves to calm we should take a milk bath. Noted.
