The Hills star Heidi Montag has joyfully revealed that she and her husband Spencer Pratt are expecting another boy.
Spencer, 38, and Heidi, 35, already share a four-year-old son called Gunner and are ‘so excited’ over their news as their little tyke ‘really wanted a brother.’
Heidi spilled to Us Weekly that she ‘couldn’t be happier’ the baby is a boy ‘because ultimately my biggest prayer was whatever would be the best for Gunner.’
Growing family: The Hills star Heidi Montag joyfully revealed this week that she and her husband Spencer Pratt, pictured with their son Gunner, four, are expecting another boy
She announced her pregnancy at the beginning of June, debuting her bump on the cover of Us Weekly and revealing she is due in December.
Now in the same magazine, she spilled: ‘I’m having a boy! Oh, my gosh… I did the earliest test to find out and I just felt like my doctor had the answer so I called. And I was like: “Hey, just wanted to check in to see if you guys got the result?”‘
Heidi revealed that ‘they were like: “Actually, we just got them 10 minutes ago.” So I couldn’t wait for Spencer and I was like: “OK, I’m ready!” They were like: “It’s a boy!” And honestly, I was so shocked.’
Although she initially ‘was convinced’ she would have a daughter, she ‘was going back and forth because everything felt the same as [when I was pregnant with] Gunner. I was like: “These are the exact same symptoms, the exact same thing.” But I think for the past year I kind of thought I’d have a girl.’
Delighted: Heidi spilled to Us Weekly that she ‘couldn’t be happier’ the baby is a boy ‘because ultimately my biggest prayer was whatever would be the best for Gunner’
Once ‘the shock wore off’ at the news she will have another son, she was delighted because of what it meant for Gunner.
‘I’m so glad we found out early. Gunner really wanted a brother and he wanted a brother to copy him and to share so many things with him so knowing that we’re having a boy, we are all so excited. It makes so much sense for our family.’
Meanwhile Spencer was also ‘shocked’ at both of the sex of the baby and at Heidi for discovering their news by herself.
‘I said: “It’s a boy!” He said: “Oh, my gosh, you found out without me?!” I’m like: “Are you not listening? It’s a boy!”‘ she dished.
The process: When she revealed she is pregnant again, Heidi told Us Weekly that it took ‘about 18 months’ of trying before she and Spencer conceived
‘Speidi,’ as they are affectionately known to their fans, became reality stars together on The Hills and got married in 2008 during its run.
After welcoming Gunner in 2017 – and bringing DailyMailTV cameras into the hospital with them – they struggled to have a second child.
When she revealed she is pregnant again, Heidi told Us Weekly that it took ‘about 18 months’ of trying before she and Spencer conceived.
Their friend Brody Jenner, whom they co-starred with on The Hills and The Hills: New Beginnings, even told them he would pay for them to undergo IVF.
Baby mine: Heidi spilled that ‘Gunner really wanted a brother and he wanted a brother to copy him and to share so many things with him….’
Although she felt ‘really blessed’ to have Gunner and was ‘was trying not to be ungrateful for my life and for what I do have,’ she could not escape the nagging sensation that a ‘person was missing in our family that I had this intense love for.’
Heidi shared that ‘it was such a deep longing in my heart that I had – wanting a sibling for Gunner and wanting to expand our family.’
She had uterine polyps surgically removed last August in order to up her chances of becoming pregnant again.
‘I was feeling nervous last night about it, but I’m excited today,’ she said in a social media video about the operation. ‘I’m hoping that the surgery works and that this is the only reason I haven’t been able to get pregnant…. I’m excited. Please, God, I pray that I’ll be able to get pregnant after this.’
Having a ball: ‘Speidi’ also took their firstborn to Disneyland late last month, which Heidi wrote was ‘on my bucket list of things to do with Gunner before the baby comes’
Now she is excitedly sharing regular pregnancy updates on Instagram, dishing that she is ‘Definitely getting bigger faster with the 2nd baby!’
‘Speidi’ also took their firstborn to Disneyland late last month, which Heidi wrote was ‘on my bucket list of things to do with Gunner before the baby comes.’

Meanwhile this May she made the bombshell announcement that she was ‘going into real estate’ to escape the financial instability of showbiz.
‘So, I’m like, we need a different income,’ she told The Perez Hilton Podcast. ‘I don’t want to be waiting on TV money. We’ve spent way too much of our money.’
When Perez asked why ‘just’ Heidi was going into real estate, Spencer assured him that ‘she’s first’ but that he would ultimately make the leap as well.
