Former reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spent the holidays in Aspen with a trip full of skiing, hot tubbing, drinking and overeating – but Dish Nation has exclusively learned it was a last hoorah for Heidi, who plans to get pregnant this year.
“With a dwindling, barely-there career, Heidi can’t shake the yearning to start a family,” a source close to the couple told Dish. “Spencer’s been putting off kids for years, but Heidi has put her foot down and plans to try for a baby this year.”
Heidi and Spencer are appearing on WE TV’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars this season and baby talk has already been a point of contention with the couple. “I’m ready to have children and Spencer’s acting like a child,” the former Hills star said in a preview clip. According to the source, Heidi viewed the holidays as her last time partying, while she opts to instead focus on a baby.
“She’s really gunning to get pregnant sometime in 2015. She just has to convince Spencer!” the source added.
“Heidi would make a great mother. She wants it more than anything right now.”
Heidi’s motherhood bug first reared its head during the couple’s appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap in which they switched lives with Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard and her husband Sacha Brown, who have two children together.
“That swap was really the beginning of the end for Heidi,” the source told Dish. “Being with Amanda’s two children — especially the baby — ignited a maternal fire in Heidi. She was gushing over that baby and the feeling she had around the kids had stayed with her.” In fact, the source tells Dish that having kids has been the number one argument between Heidi and Spencer.
“Spencer just remains resistant,” the source said. “Heidi thought he’d warm to the idea with time, but since he continues to say no to starting a family Heidi’s decided to put her foot down this year. Don’t be surprised if she finally gets pregnant.”
