On Friday, the new mom Insta-prammed a photo of her strolling Kirra down the sidewalk — but only revealed her baby’s toes. The image shows a beaming Patridge tending to her new daughter, who was born just over a week ago.
“Baby Kirra’s first walk in her adorable pram,” the former reality star captioned the shot, directing her followers to a new blog post about her first child’s birth story.

“To tell you the truth, I haven’t stopped staring at her since she arrived,” the former Hills star, 31, wrote in the blog post. “There are no words to describe the amount of love I have for her … I never thought I could feel so many feelings for someone so small.”
She goes on to say her daughter’s name — which is “an amazing surf spot in Australia” — took some getting used to, and that she needed to say it out loud a few times before making her decision.
And little Kirra’s middle name has extra-special meaning.
“We named her after my grandpa, Max, who unfortunately passed away about a month ago,” Patridge wrote. “She was due on his birthday, and he couldn’t wait to meet her. He would have been so proud … I love and miss him so much.”
Patridge and her fiancé Corey Bohan announced their baby news in December, shortly after the couple celebrated their engagement in November. The couple revealed they were expecting a daughter in March.
