She then went on to add that pics are coming soon. “Details and pics coming soon! But for now just focusing on Sky and taking good care of her. Thank you all for your prayers and love today! ❤️😘 Love you guys!,” she added.

Gretchen and Slade went through a long process to give birth to they baby girl. Slade had to reverse his vasectomy and then the couple went through multiple rounds of IVF, which they’ve been very open about throughout the process.

Gretchen shared the news on Tuesday, July 9 that she made the “super hard” decision to have a c-section for her daughter’s birth.

“Tomorrow is the Day!!! 🙌🏻🙏🏻,” she wrote. “So I am going to share a story with you all…. I had a really really tough day yesterday because of having to make a super hard decision after my doctors appt. but after a lot of contemplation, crying, struggling, (and based on the medical pros and cons) the Doctor, Slade and I have decided a c-section is going to be the safest thing for me and baby tomorrow. Doctor said I am only dilated 1cm and I guess I have a “cervix of steel” 😜 so it’s not really cooperating at this point and just my pelvic exam yesterday was so beyond painful that I almost passed out, then started to hyperventilate because of that, which then lead to a panic attack! Needless to say I was a hot mess!”
