It was a long-awaited day of relief and happiness for Larry Birkhead.
Not to mention fans of reality TV all across America.
The staff at The Hollywood Gossip was thrilled to learn that the breakout smash would be coming back - and quickly. With all the drama swirling around Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag et al., the new season can't come a moment too soon.
So we can certainly understand that such momentous news would be lauded by The Hills' ever-growing legion of rabid fans - Larry Birkhead among them...
Also yesterday, it was confirmed that Birkhead is the father of Dannielynn.
