Former Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt welcomed their first child, Gunner Stone, on Sunday, October 1. And while the couple had been over-the-top extra about Montag鈥檚 pregnancy on social media (in the best way, obvs), our first look at their baby boy has come not via Twitter and Instagram but on the cover of Us Weekly.

The cover shows Pratt and Montag beaming as they hold baby Gunner wrapped in a blanket. The headline calls him their 鈥渕iracle baby,鈥 something that Pratt reiterated with the praying-hands emoji when he shared the image on social media on Wednesday.

Montag has hinted at pregnancy struggles in the past but has not elaborated on any potential medical issues. In February, she congratulated her former Hills costars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port on their pregnancies, and said that while she was excited for her own family, the timing hadn鈥檛 been right for her and Pratt. Last year, she said she 鈥渉ad to pray to get my husband to even鈥gree to have a kid.鈥

Now that Gunner is here, though, Pratt has big dreams for his little boy. He told Us Weekly he wants his son to be a professional athlete someday 鈥 preferably a left-handed pitcher in the MLB. 鈥淗e鈥檒l probably be a pitcher, so when Gunner steps to the mound, he鈥檚 going to be gunning those throws down home plate,鈥 the new dad quipped.

The name is a good fit in more ways than one. 鈥淕unner has been on my top names since before Spencer even agreed to have kids,鈥 Montag told the mag of the adorable moniker.

The former MTV star detailed the kind of mom she hoped to be in an episode of her pregnancy podcast earlier this year, saying she wanted to be 鈥渃alm, cool, and loving.鈥 Pratt, of course, is focused on getting Gunner the verified blue check mark on Instagram, after previously joking on theAllegedly With Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weisspodcast that he 鈥渨ould just like my baby to be a professional content maker.鈥 We鈥檇 say that鈥檚 already well underway!
