The former reality stars reveal to Us Weekly that after eight years of marriage, they're expecting their first child on Oct. 19. "I thought she was about to say she made muffins or banana bread," Pratt, 33, recalls the moment his wife told him the news. "Heidi said, ‘I’m pregnant.' I was like, ‘Whoa, that’s way more exciting than banana bread!'"
"I started crying, and he embraced me," Montag, 30, says of the moment.
Pratt adds that this pregnancy was definitely planned. "Heidi has wanted to be a mom since the day I met her,” he notes. “She has planned for and thought about this."
"I wanted a baby three years ago," Montag shares with Us. "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. 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."
In an interview with Faithwire last September, Montag revealed that she had babies on the brain. "I had to pray to get my husband to even agree to have a kid, and so this whole journey over the last few years, I have had to do," she confessed. "It is not so easy. Not everyone can just have kids whenever they want. There is a lot of hardship and prayers and certain things you have to put into that."
Many alums from The Hills as well as Laguna Beach have focused their attention on family in recent years. Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari both have kids, while Whitney Port, Jason Wahler and Talan Torriero are expecting.
In a recent interview with ET, Cavallari gushed over Conrad's pregnancy, saying, "I'm so happy for her, and it's cool to see the evolution of everybody from The Hills and Laguna Beach and to see how everyone is growing up. It's been really fun to watch!"
