Heidi Montag is expecting her second baby with husband Spencer Pratt after the pair struggled to conceive
The Hills star Heidi Montag is pregnant with her second child to husband Spencer Pratt.
The 35-year-old shared the news with her excited fans on Tuesday.
She told followers how the pair – who have been together since 2007 and tied the knot in 2008 – can’t wait to welcome another baby together.
They already share son Gunner together and are thrilled to be expanding their family once again.
“I couldn’t be more excited. I don’t know who I’m the most excited for — myself or Gunner or Spencer,” Heidi told US Weekly.
She continued: “I just felt like something was missing. I felt like a person was missing in our family that I had this intense love for. And 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 beloved couple had been trying for another child for around 18 months.
Speaking about their journey, Spencer added: “Heidi has been crying a lot. It’s like every month, ‘Here we go’. I was like, ‘If it happens, it happens.’ But Heidi didn’t want to do it that way.
“It was so long at this point I don’t know if I have any emotion left because it was very challenging.”

Heidi then shared that the pair were even considering IVF treatment – with former co-star Brody Jenner offering to pay for it at one point.
She explained: “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.
“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.”
