'Let's Shellebrate!' Gretchen Rossi's Daughter Skylar Turns 1 at Epic Mermaid-Themed Bash

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Find Out the Sex of Their Baby During Extravagant Reveal

The party is only the latest celebration thrown in honor of their baby girl, who was born on July 10, 2019, after Rossi and Smiley, 51, experienced numerous fertility struggles on their way to parenthood together. Skylar joined big brothers Gavin and Grayson, Smiley's two sons from previous relationships.

"We knew that we had to go through [in vitro fertilization] in order to get pregnant," Rossi previously told PEOPLE. "We went through a round of IVF and in that round we had 14 embryos that came out of that. We were so excited and just beyond ecstatic about the results."

After sharing the sex of their baby at an extravagant reveal party in February 2019, the Bravo star and her fiancé were the guests of honor at a lavish baby shower, which was decked to the nines in all things pink, white and gold.

"I have to say thank you to each and every one of you for being here today," Rossi said in an emotional speech during her shower that May. "You guys know how long this journey has been for Slade and I. We have been together now for 10 years. We have been trying for a baby for the last four and half years and, oh my gosh, this is such a blessing from the good Lord above."
