Former The Hills star Lauren Conrad had a hard time coming up with a romantic photo to post on Valentine’s Day—and what she posted was definitely far cry from her first Valentine‘s Day with her future husband nearly 10 years ago.
In the photo shared on Instagram, Conrad, who shares sons Liam James and Charlie Wolf with Tell, was making a distressed face as she stood in the bathroom. Her husband could be seen behind her leaning over a tub as he bathed one of their sons.
“Happy Valentine’s Day!!” she wrote. “This is honestly the only photo we took together this entire year. William hates photos, but I love him.”
When one commenter asked what was going on in the photo and if Tell was actually in the tub, LC replied, “Only Charlie is in the tub. Liam is actually sitting on the potty and asked me to hold his hand while he [went to the bathroom]. That’s why I’m making that face haha.”

Lauren Conrad Shared a Family Christmas Card Photo Last December That Featured Her Posing with Her Husband
Although Conrad rarely posts photos with Tell, she did pose with him for some shots for their Christmas card in December. The sweet card featured the family of four on the beach, with one shot of the whole family, a separate one of just the little boys, and a third of Tell holding his two sons.
The Paper Crown founder shared a sneak peek at the card on her LaurenConrad.com blog, but it was a rare sighting of her husband in what turned out to be a stressful year for all.
“Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you have a very happy and safe holiday season,” she wrote. “I plan to keep it as relaxed as possible at home with William and my boys. This year has been crazy to say the least, and I am so grateful for my friends, family, and everything I’ve been able to work on this year.”
