The Hills Baby Boom Continues As Third Cast Member Announces They Are Expecting

Crikey, those Hills stars are a rampant lot

It would seem that 2017 is THE year to have a baby, especially of you happen to be a former The Hills star.

Yep, in the latest of what seems to be a slew of stateside breaking baby news, Jason Wahler is now the third ex-cast member to confirm via Instagram that he is expecting his first child with wife Ashley Slack later this year. The reality star — who dated Lauren Conrad on the show from 2005 to 2006, and famously stopped her from ‘going to Paris’, yep, that’s him — shared a sweet snap depicting a white romper suit, a scan, the due date, and the caption ‘So blessed! :)’

Cute.

So blessed! 🙂

Jason, who has publicly battled alcohol addiction in the past, now joins fellow former reality stars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port on what’s fast becoming ‘The Hills 2017 New Parent’ list. (Okay, so we kind of made that up, but come on, it’s exciting.)

Lauren and Jason dated for a year

Leading lady Lauren Conrad was the first to break the news via Instagram back in January that she was expecting her first child with musician husband William Tell, followed closely by co-star Whitney Port who shared her own pregnancy pic just a few weeks later.

Sadly, the one The Hills star that’s openly expressed how much she’d like to start her own family, is struggling to make the list. In a video message shared last week, Heidi Montag — after congratulating both Lauren and Whitney on their baby news — hinted that she was experiencing some difficulties trying to conceive.

‘Obviously I have been wanting children and I’m excited for it, but it hasn’t been the right timing for me,’ the CBB star revealed via YouTube’s Faithwire channel. ‘So I think in life it’s important for us to pray and prioritize God’s timing in our lives and not compare [our life] to other people’s. Because we’re all different and we all have different things going on.’

In the clip Heidi, who married fellow The Hills star Spencer Pratt in 2009, recognises that 2017 is indeed the year to start a family.

‘It seems like 2017 is the year to get pregnant,’ she acknowledges. ‘First and foremost, a huge congratulations to my two former co-stars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, who are both expecting.’

Aww. Here’s hoping that Heidi makes the list sooner rather than later. Although, what’s Justin Bobby up these days? Fingers crossed for a total 2017 The Hills baby boom? YES!
