We’ll never doubt the power of crystals again.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are expecting their first child together after nearly eight years of wedded reality TV bliss.
The couple, who’ve become a reality TV staple after appearing on the MTV series “The Hills,” announced the news of their growing family on Wednesday in peak Speidi fashion with an Us Weekly cover story.
“The look on her face, I can’t even describe it,” Spencer told the magazine about the moment he found out he was going to be a father. “She was literally glowing. I thought she was about to say she made muffins or banana bread.”
“Heidi said, ‘I’m pregnant.’ I was like, ‘Whoa, that’s way more exciting than banana bread!’” he continued.
Montag has long expressed her desire to have a child, dating as far back as the infamous fake pregnancy storyline early on in “The Hills,” but the two have held off in recent years due to their appearances on a slew of reality TV shows.
“I wanted a baby three years ago. Spencer was a little hesitant. Then one thing after another came up. We had work obligations, like ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ in the U.K., which I did not want to be pregnant for,” Montag explained. “I’m actually really thankful we waited. I thought I was ready in my twenties, but with everything we had going on, it just wouldn’t have been a good situation for us.”
The 30-year-old mother-to-be is three months along, with a due date of October 19. The couple have chosen not to reveal the sex of the child, but both are hoping for a boy.
“It might never be the perfect time, so we said, let’s move forward,” she added. “We had all these conversations. We’re older, we have more life experience. Nothing is holding us back.”
You know what this means? Montag, her famous frenemy, Lauren Conrad, and Whitney Port are all pregnant at the same time and will likely deliver within months of each other. “The Hills” stars Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari have also both welcomed baby girls in the last two years.
We’re sure they’re all thrilled by the coincidence.
