The Hills: New Beginnings star Jason Wahler was scared over Christmas when his young son Wyatt had to be hospitalized.
In an Instagram shared Monday by his wife Ashley Wahler, she revealed the 18-month-old had to spend the night at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville after being diagnosed with pneumonia.
“Well, not the Christmas we were expecting,” she thought to kick off her message.
Ashley shared that she and Jason – who is co-chair of an addiction treatment foundation in addition to being a reality TV star – had been dealing with sick children for weeks before the unfortunately timed hospitalization of Wyatt.

“For about a month these poor kids have been sick and what I thought was a normal cold, Wyatt, turned into the worst Christmas morning with a high fever and very lethargic,” Ashley wrote in her caption.
“Turns out he has pneumonia, so we spent the night at the children’s hospital continuing to give him oxygen for his breathing. [sic],’ she continued.
Even though Jason’s family had to mess up their Christmas plans, they were still able to spend quality family time together in Wyatt’s hospital room, with the photos of Ashley showing off a small Christmas tree from the hospital around which they gathered.
‘This guy is a soldier!!!! He was so brave and Children’s Hospital was beyond even giving us our own tree to decorate,” she continued. “Nothing could stop our joy even if it meant staying in the hospital for the night.”

Wyatt’s father, Jason, is best known for his stint on the second season of MTV’s reality series Laguna Beach, as well as his brief stint on its follow-up show The Hills from 2006 to 2007.
He mostly stayed out of the spotlight until he returned to appear in The Hills: New Beginnings, which reunited several of the original cast members.
The stars reportedly rebelled against the scripted storylines and said they didn’t want the show to add new, younger cast members, which could have played a role in its cancellation after season two.
However, New Beginnings also garnered poor reviews and modest viewership in its second season, which was delayed due to the onset of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Jason and Ashley welcomed son Wyatt in June 2021.
