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.
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!)...in 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.
