Schroeder shared the exciting news Saturday on Instagram while also revealing the couple has named the baby boy Messer Rhys Clark. Schroeder also revealed the boy was born four minutes after midnight on Sept. 7. Messer weighed a healthy 7 pounds, 14 ounces.
“We love him so much already, send prayers Hartford doesn’t terrorize him,” she added in her caption.
“I knew the whole entire time that we were having a boy,” Schroeder exclaimed with enthusiasm during the podcast. “I kept saying it. I felt it. It was a vibe.”
The reality star turned podcast host went on to elaborate about her intuition, attributing it to being “so in tune with [her] body.” This connection led her to become “so convinced” that she was expecting a son. Schroeder initially announced her second pregnancy with a heartfelt Instagram post, expressing her love for her unborn child. Unfortunately, the post has since been made private or deleted by the post’s owner.
Schroeder and Clark also share a daughter, Hartford, who was born in January 2021.
The couple first tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in October 2020, but their larger wedding celebration was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, Schroeder was already pregnant with Hartford. They eventually had their dream wedding in Italy in May 2022.

Schroeder’s first pregnancy announcement in 2020 came amid controversy. She, along with co-star Kristin Doute, were fired from Vanderpump Rules due to their involvement in racist actions against their former co-star, Faith Stowers. Schroeder publicly apologized for her past actions and took steps to educate herself about race and diversity, even hiring a diversity coach.
Reflecting on her journey, she explained, “I have been out of this situation and this environment for three years now… Drama is not my life anymore. I don’t know how to digest it. I don’t know how to talk about it.”
