Speidi Baby! Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag Are Expecting Their First Child

“Think of all the staged photo shoots this baby bump’s gonna get us!”

There’s a “Speidi” baby on the way!

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag announced today that they are expecting their first child. The former stars of The Hills, who have been married for eight years, say they have wanted a baby for a while, but decided to wait until now to procreate.

“I wanted a baby three years ago. Spencer was a little hesitant,” Heidi told Us Weekly. “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.”

For years, Heidi and Spencer made sure they were in the center of a media tornado. The pair had been known to call the paparazzi on themselves, stage ridiculous holiday-themed photo shoots for magazines (Who could forget this cringe-worthy moment in time?)  and spend money on ridiculous things. The pair eventually went broke, and faded into the background, but still did the occasional reality show.

(Apparently, they still call the paparazzi and stage ridiculous photo shoots, though, as evident in these photos from the Us Weekly story!)

“We’re older, we have more life experience. Nothing is holding us back,” Heidi told Us Weekly.

According to the magazine, Heidi is currently 12 weeks along in her pregnancy and due October 19. She and Spencer are just the latest in a line of former stars of ‘The Hills’ to get pregnant, or have a baby. Lauren Conrad is currently pregnant with her first child, as is Whitney PortJason Wahler and his wife are also expecting their first child. Audrina Patridge welcomed her first child– daughter Kirra– last year.

  1. “Nothing is holding us back,” Heidi told Us Weekly…..except Spencer’s obvious hesitance and disinterest in being a parent for YEARS now.

  2. As much as I couldn’t stand these two at one point I actually like them now. Very mature for them to have waited as long as they did to start a family. Congrats to both!!

  3. I swear, the timing indicates that they got pregnant right after Lauren announced her pregnancy. Am I the only one who thought they were just jealous and wanted attention? No?!

  4. I keep reading that they have no money (Spencer spent his on crystals, Heidi on boobs and such) and they live rent free at his Grandparents house. With that said, best of luck to their family. Maybe Heidi can sell one of her boobs for diaper money.

  5. It’s funny that people have been so critical of these two. Yes, they loved the game/attention/dramatics, but in their defense, they were barely 20 with cameras in their face capturing every bad decision. I am certainly thankful that I didn’t live my early 20s with that much scrutiny. That aside waiting 8 years into their marriage is commendable. Shows restraint, mature decision making and I wish them the very best.

  6. I actually applaud them for waiting until they matured. I don’t like them but their relationship has lasted longer than a lot of Hollywood “celebrities.”

  7. For the sake of that child, I hope her alcoholism is at least under control for those 9 months. I remember certain recaps about her being wasted from the moment that experiment show started (still grateful I never had to watch it, thanks The Ashley!)
