Heidi Montag may have just joined Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, and Audrina Patridge in the mom (and mommy-to-be) club, but when it comes to experience, Kristin Cavallari has them all topped. Already a mama to three little ones, the former reality TV star can definitely give her friends a parenting tip or two. That’s why, when soon-to-be first-time mom Heidi Montag came to her with plenty of questions, Cavallari had some baby name advice that was perfectly clever and totally straightforward.
“Heidi has been asking me lots of baby questions,” Cavallari told ET, saying that she’s more than willing to help and share any expertise she may have. “I sent her a whole list of things I loved as a mom [during] the first six months, because I remember being a first-time mom, I [didn’t] really have anyone I could turn to.” Totally sweet. Way to look out for a friend and fellow mom, Kristin!
But she also revealed that the very first question Montag had was about (yep, you guessed it!) baby names. With Cavallari a proud mom to sons Camden Jack (2012) and Jaxon Wyatt (2014), as well as daughter Saylor James (2015), Montag is obviously a fan of her friend’s tastes. She even sought out baby naming advice from the fellow mama. But Cavallari politely — and surprisingly — declined, with some wise advice: “I was like, ‘Heidi, this is your baby… it’s what you want to name your baby.’” In other words, the best baby name ideas come from within.
