Stassi Schroeder brought most of the gang back together again to celebrate her daughter Hartford’s first birthday.
Katie Maloney, Lala Kent, Scheana Shay and Brittany Cartwright were on hand for the milestone day where Stassi and her husband, Beau Clark, hosted a French Countryside-themed party for their little one.
Cartwright, Schroeder, Maloney and Kent were all part of a pregnancy pact, with the women hoping to create their own little community of VPR babies.
Maloney and her husband, Tom Schwartz, have discussed family planning efforts and admitted to PEOPLE last year that they both ‘want to have kids.’

‘As far as the timeline, I’m still noncommittal, but I’m on the record — it’s official, we do want to have kids, and I love kids,’ he said.
But their journey hasn’t been as easy as Katie admitted in an Instagram post last year that while she’s happy for her friends, she’s aware that getting pregnant isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
When a fan asked if she had FOMO (fear of missing out) about her friends’ growing families, she responded: ‘Zero fomo. I’m so happy for my friends and really enjoying being along for their journey. It will happen for us when it’s right. Sometimes it just takes time and doesn’t always happen the first try.’
Stassi and Kristen Doute were famously in 2020 after a racially motivated incident resurfaced where they reported Black co-star Faith Stowers to the police in 2018 for a crime she did not commit.
Brittany Cartwright and Jax — who’s real name is Jason Michael Cauchi — were also fired, and announced their big VPR news with matching posts highlighting a few of their favorite moments from the show which detailed many of their highs and lows throughout their relationship.
