Gretchen Rossi Pregnant?

When Gretchen Rossi hit a recent gala, she draped her baby bump in sparkles. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum looked like the most glamorous mother-to-be, and proudly posted a photo of her look to Instagram with a caption that read: "Baby on board."

According to some commenters, though, Gretchen's slim silhouette doesn't necessarily let on that she's growing a wee human. On February 4, Gretchen reposted a photo from her glamorous night out, and wrote a caption that clapped back at anyone who had unkind things to say about the size of her bump. She also shared some feedback from her doctor on the current size of her belly, and this info could be helpful for other expectant women out there: 

"I asked my doctor today if it was normal that I didn’t have much of a belly yet, and she said that when you are fit (and especially during your first pregnancy) sometimes you don’t 'pop' until later (5-6months)." Gretchen is, of course, extremey fit, and she's had mercifully healthy pregnancy cravings as well. As she's shown on Instagram, her diet has been all about salads loaded with super-foods and pumpkin seeds. 

So, if Gretchen still looks slender in a crop top, it's for a healthy reason — and the bun should "pop" soon.
