Heidi Montag talks one-on-one with Faithwire about preparing for motherhood and letting go of her past, one that has left the 30-year-old with a “fame chasing” identity card, thanks to a debacle of post “Hills” television appearances and acts.
The frank and openness of Montag’s previous wasteful habits like losing almost all of the $10 million dollar MTV show generated fortune, posing “tastefully” for Playboy and teaming up with Spencer for the long haul, a man portrayed poorly on and off “The Hills” has left fans like myself wondering, what’s next?
Well, it sounds like a lot – including starting a family.
“I am writing a coffee table wife type of book, it is more like a fun project, something I enjoy doing and then I am getting ready to be a mom hopefully next year. So that is going to be my main priority and full-time job,” Montag told Faithwire.
As of now, the September born baby is not pregnant but is “hopeful” it will happen in the future. Adding that, “you know I had to pray to get my husband to even…agree to have a kid and so this whole journey over the last few years…I have had to do.”

“You know the excitement of it (but) you know it is not so easy, not everyone can just have kids whenever they want, you know there is a lot of hardship and prayers and certain things you have to put in to that.”
A true sentiment that many mothers and those who desire motherhood can agree with. But, in the immediate future and a “roadblock” to adding the new addition, is another reality show.
A part of their life, the twosome have become known for participating in.
Montag and her hubby Pratt made their millions and gained the bright light of Hollywood through their first endeavor on screen, “The Hills,” a show about millennials living in Los Angeles.
The six season thirty minute docu-drama catapulted both their reality television personalities to high heights and their meeting.
But it also displayed the downside to the couple’s epic public fall.
Ex-Lauren Conrad bestie and reality television personality said, “growing up in front of people…you make mistakes, you know producers and different people (are) involved and there is a lot at stake at a really young age.”
“I definitely made my fair of mistakes but I am thankful for the experience and it was a really great opportunity to grow and learn and I’m really thankful for where I am now.”
“(And) I definitely don’t regret where I am now.”
The young woman also went back to her roots and explained that the show made her fantasies a reality.
“I grew up in a small town in Colorado and I always dreamt that I would be buying Louboutins and I had a love for Vogue magazine,” she said.
The infamous Louboutin name goes with the shoe maker: Christian Louboutin, a French fashion designer who’s footwear has become well known because of its red soles and celebrity and socialite purchasers.
So, “when I actually had an opportunity to buy those things, it was almost like…it was fun and then of course, I just got a little carried away with it.”
“Obviously there is pressure for all of that, but I really enjoyed that at that time and for the surgery and everything it was free, it is hard to say no for me to a two for one shoe sale let alone, you know hundred of thousands worth of free stuff.”
“So at the same time, I started to get insecure about my look and comparing it to other people so the two combined, just got a little too carried away. The second round of surgeries, it was such a quick decision and I just had so much going on, I didn’t fully think it through.”
In true Montag fashion, an impression is left after speaking these words.
“At the end of the day nothing else matters. This life is really short and really temporary and when everything goes, all your money, everything you’ve built your security on, it really makes you face the reality of this life.”
“So I’m really thankful I had such a public fall and I spent all my money and everything because it made me remember what I care about and what is important to me and to rebuild.”
“Because of God, I was able to rebuild and refocus.”
Now, “I try to prioritize prayer time everyday, at least once a day, try to listen to all the Christian music I love and preaching everyday and just keep it part of my daily life because if you don’t keep it part of your daily life, it slowly kind of slips away from you, for me at least, I have just reprioritized that and honestly that is my life.”
I hope you are all having a beautiful blessed day!🍁💛🙏🏼😇😘🍂🎶🌰
