Heidi Montag is “hopeful” about the possibility of getting pregnant within the next year.

The Hills alum, who wed husband Spencer Pratt in April 2009, revealed to FaithWire that she is currently busy writing a book — and hopes to conceive sometime in the next 12 months!

“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, 30, explained.

Although the MTV personality is looking forward to building a future family with her 33-year-old husband, she admitted of Pratt: “I had to pray to get my husband to even … agree to have a kid.”

With seven years of marriage under the couple’s belt, Montag is ready to take on motherhood. But although she is excited about the prospect of having children with her forever beau, she recognizes that getting pregnant can be difficult for many.

“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,” Montag said.

With motherhood and a growing family on the horizon for the reality star couple, Montag reflected on her path and admitted that she is thankful for her “public fall” from stardom and that her faith keeps her focused on “what is important.”

“Because of God, I was able to rebuild and refocus,” Montag said. “I try to prioritize prayer time everyday … 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.”
