Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag welcome their first child, son Gunner Stone

Family portraitđź’™ Ready for our son! #9monthspregnant

A post shared by heidipratt (@heidipratt) on

Back in April, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag announced their pregnancy. They seemed to only figure out this year that pregnancy and babies are always “interesting” and “profitable” from a celebrity/tabloid standpoint. Learning that, Spencer immediately got Heidi pregnant and they started selling their story far and wide. Edited to add: Heidi seemed to have wanted a baby for a while, but Spencer took some convincing. They claimed that they were able to conceive pretty quickly. Us Weekly got most of the exclusives, because I guess Us Weekly was the highest bidder. Spencer and Heidi were really trying to tap into The Hills nostalgia and now they have a baby boy to show for it.

Now a family of three! The Hills alums Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Gunner Stone, on Sunday, October 1, Us Weekly exclusively confirms. Gunner was born at 3:06 p.m. He weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and measured 19 inches long. He has blond hair and blue eyes. “Heidi and Spencer are proud parents of a healthy baby boy as of this afternoon,” the couple’s rep exclusively tells Us.

“We are so blessed to have a beautiful healthy baby boy,” Montag tells Us Weekly exclusively. “It was the hardest and most rewarding experience.” Pratt described the experience to Us as, “Officially the most lit day of my life.”

Thoughts on the name Gunner Stone Pratt? Gunner Pratt sounds like the name of every frat boy ever, but it’s not exactly a bad name. I actually have to give them some begrudging credit: they found a name which is rarely used by celebrities, but it still feels familiar enough to not be considered “weird.” As for the middle name “Stone” – Spencer is a “crystal salesman.” That’s his job now. If Heidi had given birth to a girl, I bet “Crystal” would have been in her name somewhere. But since it’s a boy, he gets the name Stone. Why not Hypersthene or Moonstone or a specific crystal name?!?

    Gunner Stone Pratt? Good luck kid.

  2. Jker says:

    No real problem with the name generally and I’m sure all the press we’re seeing about the name/baby was arranged in advance, but Jesus it’s bad timing.

  3. PIa says:

    Don’t judge: I love The Hills episode with Andre Leon Talley spotting Whitney Port and declaring she should be a model. She then models the Hilary Swank Oscar Dress on morning TV, and falls in the process. Emily the CEO of Glossier was also on that episode.

  4. Beth says:

    Gunner isn’t something I’d name a child, and I never thought of it as an actual name . With all the terror all of the “gunners” are causing, it’s a pretty bad choice of names these days. It must be a family name for someone to pick that name in the first place. It’s their choice though

  5. Green Is Good says:

    These two are still together? I’m genuinely amazed.

  6. Dee says:

    Lord have mercy.

  7. Kitten says:

    What’s with the Alt-Right haircut?

  8. HelloSunshine says:

    Don’t forget the part where he already has an iPhone 8 for the baby plus all social media accounts ready to go. They’re not even trying to pretend this poor kid isn’t their meal ticket.

  9. Mia4s says:

    Of course his name is Gunner. Of course. I’d be disappointed if it wasn’t.

  10. Chloe says:

    Doesn’t Heidi train with Gunner Peterson?

    I almost liked Spencer when he was doing the podcast with RHAP. I came to actually really like Heidi when she’d make appearances, but after Spencer screwed Rob over, I was done. That man needs some mental help.

  11. Shocked says:

    I don’t give a toss about them, but I have to admit that the full range of their maternity photos were SO beautiful. This last photo above is totally nonsensical, but the rest of the shoot was breathtakingly beautiful. I’m not usually a fan of maternity photos generally (baby bump photos, sure, but something about the explosion of professional portraiture bothers me for some completely unknown reason), but holy crap does she look amazing.

    As for the name….Definitely not what I would choose, but I’m glad they don’t let stupid shit dissuade them from a name they fell in love with. I wouldn’t NOT name my kid Isis, for example, just because that’s the word used to describe a terrorist group. Isis is an amazing mythological figure, and a beautiful name for a person.

  12. Andrea says:

    I watched them on CBB uk. I don’t know how he will handle a child, he is a severe germaphobe.

  13. Molly says:

    I dislike the name Gunner because it’s a popular redneck name along with their brothers Hunter, Trapper, and Wesson.
    But whatever with these two. I didn’t think they’d last 5 minutes off tv and outside of the (fringes) of the spotlight. Good for them, I guess?

  14. KiddVicious says:

    They look like an ad for Sea Monkeys in that first photo. They should have picked better crowns.

  15. IndifferentCat says:

    An unfortunate name given the history of this day

  16. Anastasia says:

    But whose original face will the baby have?
