The Hills are alive with the sounds of…
Both of the happy and frustrated variety, we should specify, because Lauren Conrad just welcomed a brand new baby into the world!
The former MTV personality confirmed this blessed piece of news herself on Wednesday evening being an adorable drawing of what we presume to be herself, her husband William Tell and their two kids.
“Our sweet baby boy, Charlie Wolf Tell, has arrived!” Conrad wrote on Instagram as a caption to the cool image below.
The couple is already parents to son Liam James Tell, 2.
The Hills alumna initially shared news of her second pregnancy back in April, posting a sweet photo of her bump and writing along with it:
“It’s been hard to keep this one to myself! Very excited to share that our family will be getting a little bigger this year.”
Conrad, who has remained mostly out of the spotlight ever since the original The Hills went off the air (she plays no role in the much-maligned reboot) married Tell in a September 2014 sunset ceremony at a boutique winery.
She mostly makes a living these days in the fashion industry.
A decade before tying the knot and shifting her goals, however, an 18-year-old Conrad sky-rocketed to prominence after being cast on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.
This reality show chronicled her and her friends’ lives in their hometown of Laguna Beach, California.
This series was then spunoff to create The Hills two years later.
After it went off the air, though, Conrad really focused on her family life and the fashion world, never even responding to shade hurled her way by former rivals Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.
She really does seem far over all that these days.
Earlier this year, meanwhile, Lauren opened up about finding her footing when it comes to parenthood.
“Feeling like your quote unquote old self, I think takes a really long time,” she said in her Asking For a Friend podcast, adding at the time:
“For me, I would argue it took me at least a year to start feeling like normal again.”
We’re guessing millions and millions of women can relate to this quote and the sentiment behind it.
Thankfully, the ex-reality star has learned to lean on her parents — and her husband’s family.
“There is a lot of pressure to do it on your own and I felt that even with all the help I was like, ‘No, I need to do this all by myself,'” Lauren said.
“I don’t know when we decided that that was the way it was supposed to be or set that standard because it’s so impossible. When you’re not sleeping, that’s a form of torture!
“You’ll literally lose your mind to the point where I was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m qualified to watch a baby right now. I don’t know if I should be left along with my child. I haven’t slept in three days. I’m so tired.'”
We feel ya, LC.
And we’re so very happy for you and William!
Congrats on the new addition!
At least one major part of Lauren Conrad’s book is longer unwritten; The Hills and Laguna Beach alumna has just become a mother!
Lauren and her husband, William Tell, welcomed a son named Liam James Tell on Wednesday, July 5, a source confirmed moments ago.
As you can see above, the lifestyle maven announced this incredible milestone in vintage Lauren Conrad fashion on Instagram.
“He’s here! We’re so excited to welcome Liam James Tell into the world!” she wrote as a caption to a sweet cross stitch of the family.
Conrad, 31, revealed on New Year’s Day that she and Tell, 37, were starting their family after just over two years of marriage.
She celebrated a baby shower on May 20, where she showed off her baby bump in a striped dress and celebrated with friends poolside.
“So lucky to have these wonderful ladies in my life!” LC, who looked predictably gorgeous, captioned an Instagram photo of the event.
“They spoiled me with a beautiful shower today.”
Tell, who was in the band Something Corporate from 2001-04 before getting a business degree, first met Conrad when she was just 16.
They went on a blind date 10 years later.
Soon enough, the head over heels in love duo were dating exclusively, then getting engaged, then getting married in September 2014.
“What a perfect way to start our lives together; surrounded by the people we love most,” the smitten couple said on their wedding day.
Lauren announced her pregnancy in similar fashion to her son’s birth, sharing a sonogram on the first day of this calendar year.
“Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2017 is going to be the best year yet…” Conrad wrote as a caption to that special image.
In a 2015 blog post, she responded in a Q&A about how many kids she wants to have with her husband. “Maybe two,” she wrote.
“That way we aren’t outnumbered.”
Time will tell if that changes, but we’re fairly certain in saying she, William and Liam will be one incredibly happy family for now.
“My favorite thing about being married is knowing that I have a partner in life that I get to do so many wonderful things with,” Lauren said.
“Dreaming of the things we will do 20 years from now is so fun. William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy.”
“When you meet a nice guy who also keeps your interest, that is the dream. If you’re going to settle down, it should be with someone you can’t stop thinking about.
Congratulations to the new parents!
Lauren Conrad is ringing in the new year with a very exciting announcement:
She's pregnant with her first child!
The former reality star, who has turned her stint on The Hills into a solid career as an author, fashion designer and all-around lifestyle guru, woke up Sunday morning and relayed the news to her Instagram follows.
She is expecting a baby with husband William Tell.
And in case you don't believe Conrad for some reason, she included a picture of a sonogram as evidence.
"Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2017 is going to be the best year yet..." she wrote as a caption to the image.
Check it out here:
Conrad and Tell got married in 2014.
She donned a Badgley Mischka couture gown for the special occasion, which took place in California and which included former co-star Lo Bosworth as a bridesmaid.
The two started dating in 2013 and were together for about a year prior to exchanging vows.
In a 2015 blog post, the ex-Hills and Laguna Beach actress was asked how many kids she wants to have with her husband.
"Maybe two," she wrote. "That way we aren't outnumbered."
At only 30 years old, Conrad has plenty of time to reach this goal, of course.
"My favorite thing about being married is knowing that I have a partner in life that I get to do so many wonderful things with," Lauren once told her followers, adding:
"Dreaming of the things we will do 20 years from now is so fun."
We can't say for certain whether or not Conrad and Tell will be strong parents.
But they appear to have a solid bond, never having made any celebrity gossip headline via any divorce or infidelity rumors of any kind.
"William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream," Lauren previously told Cosmopolitan. "If you're going to settle down, it should be with someone you can't stop thinking about."
Congratulations to the happy and gorgeous couple!
Back in The Hills days (above), who would have thought we'd still be writing about LC?
She's come so far.
Stars were either hoppin on and off planes, or doing some last-minute shopping before Christmas Day.
Lauren Conrad showed off her new red hair, while Ryan Phillippe brought the gun show to a meeting in West Hollywood.
