Named for his father, William Tell, the young bub is clearly everything his parents hoped for.
"Before the delivery, I felt like I was getting ready for a blind date," Lauren gushed to People. "We considered doing the 4D ultrasound but then decided to wait. I just remember thinking he was so cute — and I was surprised by how tiny he was.
“I was looking at him the other day, and I was like, ‘I understand now why people keep having babies!’ ” she adds. “We’ll probably have two. I think it’s best not to be outnumbered.”
As for who Liam takes after in the looks department, mum says he’s “sort of a combo of both of us.”
“He definitely looks like William,” she says. “But he’s still so tiny it’s hard to tell!”
The former Hills star says that she knows exactly what kind of mother she wants to be, too.
“I want to be strong and teach him to respect women. The mother-son relationship is so important,” she says. “And I’m just excited to play again! I can’t wait to break out the finger paints. And I’m such a Disney nerd, so I get to watch those movies with someone who is seeing them for the first time.”
“I worked hard to get here,” she adds. “It took a lot. And it makes me appreciate my life now and value the peacefulness. I’m really lucky. And I know that.”
We think Lauren is going to be a fantastic mother. Congratulations to the happy family!
