An early labor in progress had everyone on high alert.
Earlier in September, Heidi let her followers know that there was a possibility that Baby Pratt would be showing up a little early. According to her Instagram stories at the time, labor was just around the corner.
She said, “Well this doctor visit was a little different to what I thought. I’m about 1 cm dilated and we’re just hoping he doesn’t come too early!”
The baby had a timeline of his own, however, and the debut happened anyway.
We now know the Pratts welcomed a their new baby boy a full 19 days early. A rep for the couple says that the healthy baby weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and popped into the world at 3:06 p.m. on Sunday, October 1. The new Pratt is also reported to have blonde hair and blue eyes.
What's in a name? When you're a celeb, it's always an interesting choice.
After hinting about a unique moniker prior to the birth, Heidi and Spencer decided to name their new little guy Gunner Stone. Compared to other celebrity baby names like North, Audio Science, and Pilot Inspektor, this name, while not exactly traditional, isn’t as out of the ordinary as the public usually expects from parents living in the spotlight.
Spencer says the name is unique — but not as unique as he wanted.
While thrilled to be a dad and happy with the name, Spencer seemed to think the newest Pratt could have used something that stood out even more.
In an interview with E!, he said, “We came to a common ground. It’s not as flashy as I wanted. I definitely wanted Speidi. At least as a middle name!”
Maybe it’s a good thing that idea got tabled.
Just because Gunner Pratt's name isn't the oddest in the world doesn't mean he won't have an online presence.
Spencer may not have gotten the flashiest name for his baby boy, but that won’t stop the proud dad from making sure his little guy has all his social media accounts reserved and ready to go. He recently laid out his plan, in an interview with The Sun.
“He’s a future reality star and a social media star. He has a new iPhone 8s, it’s set up already for when he’s here. I didn’t want him to have the iPhone X and get overwhelmed. So his is just an 8. We’ve already locked in his Instagram, his Facebook, his Twitter.”
