Slade says they’re hoping for a girl first, since he’s already a dad to two boys. Gretchen adds, “It would be really fun to have a girl. She would be such a daddy’s girl.”With their busy schedules, they haven’t had time to plan their nuptials — and that includes Gretchen finding a dress.“No, [I haven’t picked one out yet],” she shares. “But I went to Kleinfeld in NYC and tried on a dress that made me cry a little, so I might get that. It was beautiful, but it was so princess-y like, which I’m surprised about. I thought it would be a bit sexier.”
