Montag, 30, and Pratt, 33, who got married in 2009 while on the hugely popular MTV reality show, had only been trying to conceive for a month when Montag found out she had a bun in the oven.

"I wanted a baby three years ago," Montag confessed to Us. "Spencer was a little hesitant. Then one thing after another came up. We had work obligations, like 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the U.K., which I did not want to be pregnant for. I'm actually really thankful we waited. 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."
