Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley were thrilled to announce that they're having a baby after a tough IVF journey. Now, they've followed up with some more big news: The Real Housewives of Orange County alums revealed over the weekend that they're having a girl, which was Gretchen's biggest dream on the low.

“I have for many years been wanting a baby, as many people know, and I secretly always wanted a girl,” she told ET. “I really wanted a girl so badly … But then, the best part, is, like, I always wanted to see Slade with a little girl, so it’s extra special because he just treats me like such a queen, and she’s gonna be his little princess and I’m just so excited about it.”

“This is my first [girl], and it’s such a magical moment,” Slade added. “It’s really something we were hoping for. I can’t believe it. I literally cannot believe it.”

The couple had a fun gender reveal cake at a beautiful outdoor party with family and friends over the weekend. Gretchen and Slade explained in the interview that they also have a name for their baby girl, but they're not ready to share it with the rest of us.

We'll all know in about five months!
