Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have a lot to celebrate. After years of trying to conceive, the couple is expecting their first baby — it's a girl! — in July. And as they wait to become parents, The Real Housewives of Orange County alums are taking advantage of their last months as a twosome with a relaxed vacation in San Diego. 

How to Watch

At six months pregnant, Gretchen's not reaching for many Mai Tais these days. But, the soon-to-be mama was still a willing participant in happy hour with her hubby while on the trip to Viejas Casino and Resort, which was both a pre-baby getaway and also an "#ad" for the property, which she noted on IG. She just tweaked her order a bit. 

In a March 26 Instagram Story, Gretchen showed her followers a photo of what she and Slade were sipping poolside. "Virgin Margarita for me... bloody Mary for him," she wrote. Fresh, limey, and hangover-free — that's not a bad idea! (And of course, neither is a Bloody Mary, for those who aren't abstaining.)
