After nine years of marriage, Heidi and Spencer Pratt are going to be parents! The couple announced their pregnancy on the cover of Us Weekly’s upcoming issue.
“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,” Heidi explained. “It might never be the perfect time, so we said, Let’s move forward. We had all these conversations. We’re older, we have more life experience. Nothing is holding us back.”
“Heidi has wanted to be a mom since the day I met her,” Spencer revealed. “She has planned for and thought about this.”
Heidi is currently 12 weeks along and due October 19th. No word yet if they are having a boy or a girl but Heidi admits she would love to welcome a bouncing baby boy. “I’m hoping for a boy. I’ve always wanted a boy first. … I’d love to have a son and for the Pratt name to continue.”
Despite years of mounting criticism and backlash against them, Heidi and Spencer’s relationship has certainly withstood the test of time, and the pair have each matured since their rebellious twenties.
