Baby on board! Nearly four more years later Heidi MontagAnd Spencer PrattGunner was their first child. They have been eager to add to their family and the reality star who is pregnant is proudly showing off her bump.
“Last time I can fit these clothes for a few months! The 2nd baby is definitely growing faster! 🙏🏼,” the “Body Language” singer captioned an Instagram snap in June 2022, in which she cradled her 16-week belly during a workout session.
Us Weekly Exclusively confirmed that Montag was pregnant earlier in the month and is expecting Baby No. 2.
“I couldn’t be more excited. I don’t know who I’m the most excited for — myself or Gunner or Spencer,” Montag told UseShe noted that she is due in December. “I just felt like something was missing. I felt like there was a missing person in my family. I felt this intense love for that person. I kept praying about it. I’m like, if I’m not meant to have another kid — because I had accepted that at this point — I just wanted to not have that desire so strongly and I just wasn’t sure if it was going to happen or not. I just get so emotional about it.”
The Hills alums — who wed in 2008 before welcoming Gunner in 2017 — have been vocal about their struggles to conceive a second child.
“[It’s] definitely [added] stress. It’s the first time I feel like we’ve had a real … hardship,” the Pratt Daddy founder previously told Use In October 2021, they noted that they were trying not to lose sight of the positive. “We’ve had so much drama and negativity [from] outside factors, and this is the first time that something is internalized in our relationship that is out of our hands.”
Montag even tried to overhaul her diet — by eating raw liver — after she underwent a hysteroscopic polypectomy procedure to increase her odds.
“Once I saw the word ‘pregnant’ I started hysterically crying, overwhelmed with joy and shock and I sprinted upstairs to show Spencer,” she gushed via Instagram in June 2022. “I couldn’t believe I was pregnant again! ✨ Gunner asked me why I was crying and I told him I was so happy because he is going to be a big brother! To say we are all thrilled is an understatement.”
She added in her social media post: “I am so thankful! We are so excited for this journey. Miracle baby #2 is on the way!🙏🏼”
The Colorado native told Us Her husband and she had been trying for a new baby for around 18 months when they got the exciting news.
“I think a lot of women struggle with this and it’s just not something a lot of people talk about because it’s so hard and it’s so personal. And I felt really blessed having Gunner and having such a beautiful healthy son, so I was trying not to be ungrateful for my life and for what I do have,” Montag explained. “And at the same time, it was such a deep longing in my heart that I had — wanting a sibling for Gunner and wanting to expand our family.”
