Brody Jenner says he should have been notified of Kaitlynn Carter's pregnancy news sooner.
In Wednesday's MTV episode The Hills: New Beginnings, Carter, 32, finally told Ex Jenner, 37, that she was expecting her first baby with boyfriend Kristopher Brock. (She publicly announced the pregnancy in a June 17 Instagram post.)
Before the conversation between the exes - which will continue into the season finale next week - Jenner told his co-stars that he had already found out about the pregnancy but not her.
"Of course it's hurtful to see all these other people who seem to know she is pregnant and not me," Jenner said in front of the cameras in a confessional during the episode. "Having a baby was such a big part of our relationship and the conversation in our relationship. I don't have to be the first to know, but I think I should be in the top ten."
Carter later told others about how he informed Jenner, "It's just a big deal to share with someone. It feels like one last nail in the coffin."

Jenner and Carter married in 2018 and just a year after tying the knot they decided to give it up. (They have since confirmed that the union is not legally binding.)
The two stayed close. "We get along very well," Carter told PEOPLE in January 2020. "You know Brody and I have been together for so long and honestly I don't have an ex that I'm not friends with or not friends with. I don't have a warm relationship with either."
“That is very important to me,” she added at the time. “Once you have someone like that in your life, they will always have a special place in my heart. And Brody has the same mentality, so it worked really well between us. We see each other regularly. We have dogs that we share, you know, and I'm close to his mother and family so it's all good. "
Carter revealed on a June episode of the Hillscast podcast that it wasn't long before she and Brock, who she dated a little over a year ago, started talking about building a family. Brock also has a 6 year old son from a previous relationship.
"When I started dating again, I knew it was really important to me to find someone who had the same goals and wanted the same things in life as me," she said. "So we got into the conversation very quickly about having children and where we were with all of that."
Recalling the moment she found out she was pregnant, Carter said it took some time to process the exciting news: "It's something I've wanted for so long that I was really surprised when I found out that I was actually pregnant a good way of course. It took me a while to really take it in. I'm just really excited. "
The Hills: New Beginnings season finale will air next Wednesday (10pm ET) on MTV.
