Former MTV star Whitney Port experienced a nostalgic moment at her son’s kindergarten graduation ceremony.

On Tuesday, June 4, Port shared a TikTok video capturing her son Sonny Sanford, 6, and his classmates singing Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten,” the iconic theme song of the reality show “The Hills,” during their graduation ceremony.

Port, who starred on “The Hills,” was taken aback by the unexpected song choice. In the video, she captioned, “The song choice at my son’s kindergarten graduation…” and accompanied it with a quizzical look.

The TV personality, 39, shares Sonny with her husband, Tim Rosenman. She further emphasized the surreal experience by captioning the video, “Full circle moment? #thehills.”

In the brief clip, the graduating kindergarten class sings the bridge of “Unwritten”: “Staring at the blank page before you/ Open up the dirty window/ Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find.”

This song, which gained widespread recognition as “The Hills” theme, brought back memories for many fans who followed the series during its original run on MTV.

Fans of “The Hills” were quick to share their excitement and thoughts in the comment section of Port’s video. One fan remarked, “That music teacher is a millennial for sure he knows.” Another added, “I love this?? But curious if someone caught wind whose mama was in the audience? LOL.” The comments reflected a shared sense of amusement and nostalgia among viewers.

Another fan speculated about the song choice being intentional due to Port’s presence, writing, “There’s no way that was a coincidence that’s so cool,” while another commenter stated, “Wait. They did that FOR you!!!! Come on now.” The sentiment was clear: many believed the song selection was a nod to Port’s history with the show.

“The Hills” first premiered on MTV in 2006 as a spinoff of “Laguna Beach,” focusing on Lauren Conrad’s life in Los Angeles.

The show featured Port, Conrad, Heidi Montag, and Audrina Patridge as the main cast. The series followed their personal and professional lives, gaining a massive following.

“Unwritten,” released in November 2004 by Natasha Bedingfield, became synonymous with the show, playing during its opening credits.

Whitney Port joined the original cast, and her life on the show resonated with many viewers. She later moved on to a career in fashion and television.

After Conrad left the series during season five, Kristin Cavallari, another former “Laguna Beach” star, took over as the lead until the show concluded in 2010.

Almost a decade after the original series ended, MTV revived the show in 2019 as “The Hills: New Beginnings.” This sequel featured several returning stars like Brody Jenner and Justin “Bobby” Brescia, alongside new cast members including Mischa Barton and Brandon Thomas Lee.

While the revival aimed to capture the essence of the original series, it brought a fresh perspective to the stories of the returning and new cast members.
