Between delivery challenges, breastfeeding pain and sleepless nights, Audrina Patridge hasn’t sugarcoated how difficult motherhood can be.

But for the former reality star, parenthood came naturally — and every hurdle has been worth it for her daughter Kirra Max, now 12 weeks old.

“Every day I look at her and I can’t believe she’s mine. I can’t believe we made this,” Patridge, 31, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And she’s changing every week. Now she’s smiling all the time and making ‘goo’s and ‘gah’s.

“She’s so cute. It melts my heart,” adds the former star of The Hills and current lifestyle blogger at AudrinaPatridge.com.

Jimmy Kimmel Jess Cagle Parenting Interview

Jimmy Kimmel isn’t new to fatherhood, but it’s been a while since he’s had a toddler running around the house — until now.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host sat down with Jess Cagle, Editorial Director of PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly, to talk about a milestone he and his wife Molly McNearney are working on with their 2-year-old daughter Jane.

“We’re potty training her right now. And maybe this is some kind of karmic punishment for my time on The Man Show, but she wants to take her potty on the trampoline,” says Kimmel, whose early-2000s Comedy Central series costarring Adam Carolla featured a slow-motion segment of women in revealing clothing jumping on trampolines.

“And she’ll only go to the potty on the trampoline, which is insane,” Kimmel, 48, adds through laughter. “But that’s her. She’s a weird kid.”

No one ever said delivering a baby was easy, but Audrina Patridge had some musical accompaniment to make the process a little less stressful.

“I had the doctors turn up the music in the delivery room so I wouldn’t focus on what was happening,” Patridge tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “I was kind of scared and Corey just kept talking to me.”

The former star of The Hills delivered daughter Kirra Max by Cesarean section on June 24.

Fittingly, it was Train’s “Hey Soul Sister” that was playing when baby Kirra made her entrance.

“I was scared to have a c-section. She was breech. I tried everything to get her to flip. I went to acupuncture, I floated in the pool, I did front flips, I did handstands, I did everything you could imagine and nothing worked. I waited until the very end of my pregnancy” Patridge, 31, admits of the process. “[My fiancé] Corey [Bohan] kept talking to me. And it wasn’t bad at all!”
