“I just remember thinking he was so cute,” Conrad said of meeting her son for the first time post-delivery. “And I was surprised by how tiny he was. I was convinced I was having a giant baby, to the point where I didn’t even buy newborn clothes. In my head he was 9 lbs., and I thought that’s why delivery hurt so much!”
