The Real Nana of Orange County! Real Housewives of Orange County veteran Vicki Gunvalson shared a sweet new photo of her 3-month-old grandson Owen Tucker on Tuesday, Oct. 7, referring to herself as a "blessed nana."
The picture features the recently born tot in a teddy-bear onesie, dozing off with a slight smile on his face. Little Owen's proud grandmom captioned the pic: "#beautifulbaby, #happybaby, #blessednana, #brianaalonetime."

In July, the Bravo stalwart's level-headed daughter, Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson, welcomed her second child with her husband Ryan Culberson. (The two are also parents to Owen's big brother Troy, 2.)
Not one to show favoritism, Gunvalson also posted a new photo of her eldest grandchild on Oct. 6, captioning the pic: "I love waking up to this smiling face."
I love waking up to this smiling face. #grandchildren??
Gunvalson doesn't get to spend quite as much time with her grandkids as she wants after Ryan and Briana moved to Oklahoma earlier this year. As witnessed on season 9 of Bravo's franchise, Gunvalson tearfully said goodbye to her daughter, in what she later described as "one of the most difficult days of my life."
Gunvalson, 52, later penned a blog post for Bravo, discussing her dramatic goodbye. "I always thought I would be able to be in Briana's children (my grandkids') life on a regular basis, which now isn't the case," she wrote. "All I can pray for is that they will one day be able to return to Southern California so we can all be near each other again. If not I'll be there supporting every decision they make with a smile and missing them with great big tears."
Still, she mused, her daughter's happiness was most important. "Briana and Ryan are so happy together, so that makes it less painful knowing she is happy," Gunvalson wrote. "Ryan is an amazing father and husband and that's all I could have hoped for my daughter. Although she really misses Orange County, I'm proud of her ability to do what she has to do for Ryan's career. Oklahoma is about a 20 hour drive and they are planning on coming back in the fall for a few weeks, which will be nice."
