Spencer, 38, and his wife already share a four-year-old son named Gunner, and said he was “very excited” to tell them he was getting a sibling.
So exciting: After going into labor yesterday, the 36-year-old reality star finally gave birth after leaving the hospital and returning this morning. To a baby boy weighing 7 lbs 9 oz
Ready to pop! On Wednesday, she revealed on TikTok that her son was definitely “going to have a baby in the next day or two.”
Heidi told Us Weekly that she “couldn’t be happier ‘the baby is a boy’ because in the end my biggest prayer was whatever would be best for Gunner.
She announced her pregnancy at the beginning of June, first appearing on the cover of Us Weekly and revealing their date in December.
And the next month she said to the same magazine, “I’m having a boy! Oh, my God… I took my first test to find out and I felt like my doctor had the answer so I called. And I was like: ‘Hey, I just wanted to check in to see if I got the result.'” ?
Heidi revealed that they were like, “Actually, we had them 10 minutes ago.” So I couldn’t wait for Spencer and said, “Okay, I’m ready!” They were like: “He’s a boy!” And honestly, I was very shocked.
Family growth: A source revealed to TMZ that the family welcomed their newest addition at 11:31 a.m., and it only took “about 45 minutes” for her to give birth.

Rest easy: As she was preparing to give birth to her baby, Montag enjoyed a sandwich and did a professional make-up job
Although at first she was “convinced” that she was going to have a daughter, she rocked back and forth because everything was feeling [when I was pregnant with] gunner. I was like: “These are the exact same symptoms, the exact same thing.” But I think last year I thought I would have a girl.
Once the “shock wore off” at the news she would have another son, she was thrilled because of what it meant for Gunner.
I’m so glad we caught this early. Gunner really wanted a brother and he wanted a brother to copy him and share so many things with him, knowing we’re having a boy, we’re all so excited. It makes so much sense for our family.
Delighted: Heidi told Us Weekly she ‘couldn’t be happier’ the baby is a boy ‘because in the end my biggest prayer was whatever would be best for Gunner’
Meanwhile, Spencer is also shocked by both the sex of the baby and Heidi to discover their news herself.
I said: he is a boy! He said: Oh my God, did you find out without me?! I’m like: “Are you not listening? It’s a boy!” She said.
“Speidi,” as they are affectionately known to their fans, became reality stars together on The Hills and they married in 2008 while it was running.
After welcoming Gunner in 2017 – and bringing DailyMailTV cameras with them to the hospital – they struggled to have a second child.
The process: When she revealed she was pregnant again, Heidi Weekly told us it took “about 18 months” of trying before she and Spencer had a baby.
When she revealed she was pregnant again, Heidi told Us Weekly that it took “about 18 months” of trying before she and Spencer conceived.
Their friend Brody Jenner, who they co-starred in The Hills and The Hills: New Beginnings, told them he would pay for them to undergo IVF.
Although she felt “really blessed” to have Gunner and was “trying not to be ungrateful for my life and what I have,” she couldn’t escape the nagging sense of “someone missing in our family that I had such an intense love for.”
Little darling: Heidi leaked that “Gunner really wanted a brother and wanted a brother to imitate him and share a lot of things with him…”
“It was a longing deep in my heart — wanting a brother for a Gunner and wanting to expand our family,” Heidi shared.
She had surgery to remove uterine polyps last August to increase her chances of getting pregnant again.
“I was feeling nervous last night about it, but excited today,” she said in a social media video about the process. “I hope the surgery works out and that this is the only reason I can’t get pregnant… I’m excited.” Please, God, I pray that I will be able to conceive after that.
HAVE A BALL: The “Speidi” also took their first-born to Disneyland late last month, which Heidi Kahn writes is “on the list of things to do with the Gunner before baby comes.”
Over the summer, he excitedly shared her regular pregnancy updates on Instagram, musing that she’s “definitely growing faster with baby two!”
Speidi also took their firstborn to Disneyland in June, which Heidi Kahn writes is “on the list of things to do with the Gunner before baby comes.”
In a hot mirror selfie posted on June 30, she stroked her baby bump and shared the caption that she was 18 weeks old.
Making it happen: ‘It was a longing deep in my heart – wanting a brother for the Gunner and wanting to expand our family,’ said Heidi.
Meanwhile in May of this year, she made a surprising announcement that she was ‘going into real estate’ to escape the financial instability in the entertainment industry.
“For that, I need a different income,” she told The Perez Hilton Podcast. I don’t want to wait for TV money. We spent a lot of our money.
When Perez asks why Heidi got into real estate, Spencer assures him she’s his “first” but he’ll eventually make the jump, too.
The process: She gave her fans regular updates during her pregnancy, envisioning that she’s “definitely growing faster with the second baby!”
