As tragically reported in the past, Lauren Conrad will not be taking part in The Hills: New Beginnings.
She's chosen to distance herself from the upcoming reality show revival.
Ironically, however, the beloved former lead cast member of just the plain old The Hills is about to embark on a brand new beginning in her personal life.
Which is a roundabout way of saying the following:
Lauren Conrad is pregnant with her second child!
The gorgeous The Hills alum made the exciting announcement on Instagram today, sharing a side photo of her baby bump under a floral-patterned dress and writing as a very straightforward caption:
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.
Check out the baby bump image here:
Conrad and husband William Tell welcomed their first child, a son named Liam James, on July 5, 2017.
This blessed event took place after the co-founder of The Little Market and her lawyer love got married in a September 2014 sunset ceremony at a boutique winery.
A decade before this ceremony, an 18-year-old Conrad sky-rocketed to prominence after being cast on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, which documented her and her friends' lives in their hometown of Laguna Beach, California.
This series was then spunoff to create The Hills two years later.
Conrad pursued a career in the fashion industry on The Hills, while also feuding often with Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.
But while those two ex-reality stars haven't managed to find much happiness outside of the spotlight ever since The Hills went off the air, Conrad has very clearly moved on from her MTV life.
Conrad has remained mostly on the sidelines of any real celebrity gossip over the past several years, content to build her own business and spend time with her family.
Hence, her decision not to participate in this summer's The Hills reboot.
Heck, Conrad didn't even take the bait when someone named Justin-Bobby Brescia hurled shade in her direction shortly after The Hills reboot cast was announced.
"When you’ve got sh-tty people running around, it creates this ambiance you don’t need," he said last August, clearly referencing Conrd and her absence from the new series.
But Conrad didn't see a need to respond.
However, she did announce recently that we'll be hearing plenty from her in the future -- in podcast form!
The pregnant star announced last week that she'll soon be hosting "Lauren Conrad Is Asking For a Friend,” telling Us Weekly that the podcast will be all “about finding the balance” in working and parenting.
“You don’t want to miss anything, but at the same time, you want to teach them to work hard,” she said.
We wish her the best on baby number-two!
