After welcoming her first child in late June, Audrina Patridge admits she was hesitant to show off her little girl to the world. But in a new blog post on Wednesday, The Hills alum, 31, gave fans the first official look at her daughter, Kirra Max Bohan.
“I know these pictures were a long time coming, so I want to thank you all for your patience,” Patridge wrote. “I guess this new parenting thing has made us a little overprotective of our baby, but now that we have had time to soak it all in and adjust to our newest addition, I can’t wait to begin this journey as a new mother and share everything I learn along the way!”
In the photos, Patridge’s sweet baby is grinning from ear to ear while playing with her mom and dad, Corey Bohan.
“Kirra is the happiest, most beautiful baby with a constant smile and lots of goo-ing and gaa-ing!” Patridge said. “She loves giving Corey and I the biggest smiles, but I can’t wait until she giggles for the first time — right now she gives lots of expressions but no noise. She sleeps 6-7 hours a night (only waking up once or twice) and is pretty laid back (unless of course she’s hungry, has to burp, needs a diaper change, or gets restless!).”
The first-time parents are soaking up time with their little one, cherishing every moment.
“I absolutely love being a mom — Kirra is my number one priority,” Patridge continued. “If I’m being completely honest, the first month of no sleep, C-Section recovery, unpacking, and getting back into the swing of things was pretty grueling. But, at the end of the day, all I had to do was take one look at Kirra and none of that mattered anymore.”
The couple is also planning their wedding together, but Patridge raised some eyebrows when she referred to Bohan’s parents as her “new in-laws.” Patridge and Bohan got engaged in November shortly before announcing that they were expecting a child together.
In June she told Fit Pregnancy magazine that her wedding dress shopping was on hold until after the baby so she could assess her size.
"I didn't want to rush getting married, because stress is bad for the baby," Patridge explained at the time. "I was a little worried about people judging me for it, but Corey wasn't. He said, 'Stop caring what people think. Their opinions don't matter.' Anyway, we've already been together for so long, it’s like we're already married. It's just a title at this point -- and a ring."
