It's been eight years since The Hills went off the air, and the original cast has experienced a lot of life changes since, not the least of which is parenthood. And they're about to experience more life changes as they return to reality TV.
MTV just announced the air date for its highly anticipated reboot. The aptly retitled "The Hills: New Beginnings" will premiere June 24.
Fans are assuming parenting will likely be a major plot point for the returning reality TV veterans who are now in their 30s and making families.
The moms of The Hills all agree that motherhood has been amazing and life-changing, but each of the following four women offers a different perspective for new moms.
Audrina Patridge: Don't be afraid if your birth plan changes
"Having a C-section wasn't as bad as I thought," Patridge, a mom of one, told Mediaplanet. Her birth plan didn't originally include a C-section as she "wanted to have a natural birth," she explained.
Her baby girl, Kirra, was breach though and despite mama's best efforts, Patridge's birth team did eventually reccomend a C-section.
"I did everything possible to try to get her to flip," she told Mediaplanet. "Everything from acupuncture to floating in a pool to doing hand stands. Nothing helped."
Patridge hopes other pregnant women won't panic if their birth plan needs to change to include a C-section.
"It's not as bad as people make it out to be," she recalled, adding that her doctor was amazing and even turned on music to help her be as comfortable as possible during the birth.
Whitney Port: Breastfeeding isn't easy for everyone
Whitney Port did have a vaginal delivery when welcoming her son, Sonny, and has been very honest about how "having a vaginal delivery changes everything down there."
The candid comments came during her I Love My Baby, But YouTube series, in which she also shared her raw feelings about breastfeeding and choosing to use formula.
"I just hit a breaking point," she explained through tears in a video posted not long into her motherhood experience. "[I] said, 'I can't do this. It feels as though someone is slicing my nipples with glass.'"
Port says she stopped nursing at two months, stopped pumping shortly after that and transitioned Sonny to formula because that was what was best for them both.
Heidi Pratt: The sleep sacrifices are worth it
"The most sleep I get is two hours — sometimes three," Heidi Pratt (formerly Heidi Montag) recently told Paper after welcoming her new son Gunner with her Hills castmate-turned-husband, Spencer Pratt.
"I'm usually up every hour with Gunner, it's really intense. Gunner's given me a whole new strength that I didn't know. I feel like I am stronger than I've ever been emotionally. At the end of the day, I'm his mom, and that's my main priority."
Kristin Cavallari: Support your mom friends
Pratt reportedly calls on another former Hills castmate, Kristin Cavallari, for advice on motherhood. A mom of three, Cavallari's been a parent the longest of the Hills cast, and on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, she explained that she's always there to support the new moms in her life.
"Heidi has texted me with any and every question about being a mom," she said. "I talk to her all the time. She's doing great."
Unlike Patridge, Port and Pratt, Cavallari is not returning for MTV's Hills reboot, as her own reality show, E!'s Very Cavallari, is currently keeping her busy with another network.
Lauren Conrad (who just announced she's expecting her second child) is also skipping the reboot as she's focused on her growing family and lifestyle brand.
