Gretchen added that their child was a fighter right from the get-go, because she “self-corrected herself in the embryonic state, going from 2 to 5 cells, which is not genetically sound, but then went back to 4.” Slade and Gretchen also organized a very lavish gender reveal party in February 2019, where they revealed their kid is a daughter. Following the party, the couple announced their daughter would be named Skylar Gray, in honor of Slade’s own son Grayson who was diagnosed with a brain tumor back in 2006 and was undergoing chemotherapy at that time.
