Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are now parents! The couple had their fist son, Gunner Stone, on October 1st, he was born weighing 6 lbs 12 oz, and is already being bred for a career in sports. In fact, his name was specifically picked for this reason.
“He’ll probably be a pitcher, so when Gunner steps to the mound, he’s going to be gunning those throws down home plate,” Pratt announces in the new issue of Us Weekly, in which the parents also share exclusive photos of their newborn. “If he wants to be a skier, he’s going to be gunning down those moguls. It just applies to a lot of sports.”
“You’re not a good parent if you’re not trying to get your son set up to potentially get a $250 million gig,” quips Pratt, 34. “If doctors were getting paid $250 million, we’d hit the books hard, but currently that’s not the reality.”
Spencer’s sport of choice: “Probably baseball, a left-handed pitcher,” the self-proclaimed “Pratt Zaddy” adds. “I only want him to work a few days for $30 million or so. As cool as NFL quarterback would be, it would just be hard for me to watch people smash my son and not run onto the field and smash them.”
Gunner is born into a long-standing rivalry his parents have with former Hills co-star, Lauren Conrad, who also gave birth to a son in July. It’s safe to say he already has an opponent.
“Hopefully they’re on rival sports teams,” says Pratt. “That’s what I‘m looking forward to.”
