They don’t normally shy from the press, but Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt quietly eloped in Mexico last Thursday, Nov. 20.
“The minute we said our vows, I couldn’t stop crying,” Montag told Perez Hilton of the ceremony at the One & Only Palmilla Resort, just outside Cabo San Lucas.
Contacted by PEOPLE, Heidi’s father, Bill Montag, had this to say of the couple’s reported union: I would be upset if she got married and didn t invite me!” And if the report is true? “Then we just have to have another wedding here!, he says.
The couple is set to guest star on an episode of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother in January. (The Hills is not currently in production.)
