Gretchen Rossi May Put Wedding On Hold For Baby

Andrea Simpson / September 17, 2013

This Real Housewife of Orange County could be hearing the pitter patter of little feet before the chime of wedding bells… if she gets her way.

Gretchen Rossi is ready to be a mom, even if it means delaying her nuptials with longtime beau Slade Smiley, she tells Celebuzz.

“We are not full into planning because we’ve been a little bit fighting,” Rossi told CB! at the Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama show in Downtown L.A. Sept. 12.

“I want a baby and he wants a wedding.”

“It’s a negotiation,” added Smiley, who has a 12-year-old son Grayson from a previous relationship.

“He’s very traditional and I used to be,” she laughed. “I think it’s sweet and romantic.”

In true dramatic Housewives style, Rossi turned the tables on Smiley in July with a surprise proposal complete with helicopter, high-rise rooftop, flowing white gown and massive diamond ring (of course).

But even before the 35-year-old bombshell got down on one knee she could already hear the tick-tock of her biological clock.

“I was ready a year ago,” she revealed. “We’re just figuring it out.”
