‘Since we had a baby, we’ve been going though a cuddle drought,’ the Hills alum reveals in the clip.

‘This cuddle therapy session’s probably gonna be the longest Heidi has not held our baby since the birth seven months ago,’ Pratt, 34, said.

‘So I think Heidi’s very nervous about, “Why are you taking me away from our baby?” 

Montag meanwhile said she’s a big fan of snuggling.

‘I’m very affectionate with the baby, so I hold him a lot,’ she noted. 

‘So maybe I get my share of cuddling from there, and maybe I don’t need as much affection from Spencer because I’m getting different affection.’

The couple were guided through three relaxing positions by a Cuddlist professional cuddler who explained that hugging for longer than 20 seconds releases oxytocin which reduces the stress hormone cortisol.

Included in the three poses was The Resting Log, where Pratt laid in the fetal position with his head resting on Montag’s leg.

Montag was also instructed to put her fingers in his ears.

The Cuddlist specialist explained that the practice helps with feelings of empathy, nurturing and self-reflection.

Montag said: ‘Actually, this is the most affectionate we’ve been since I’ve been, like, three months pregnant,’

‘I’m about to cry thinking of how much I’ve missed cuddling with Spencer and how important it is to me.’ she added.

Eventually Pratt decided that he liked hugging as Montag agreed, ‘That’s why I love cuddling because when I cuddle, I think about how much I love you!’
