Spencer Pratt may have a reputation as a reality TV villain, but Heidi Montag believes he’s going to be a phenomenal father.

The Hills alum, who is expecting a son this October with her husband of eight years, described Pratt as being “a great model” in a recent interview with E! News.

“Spencer is going to bring a lot of strength. I think that he’s very loving. He’s very loyal. He has a great heart. He’s very genuine. He’s smart. Everything,” she said. “Spencer’s going to be a really great model. He’s going to be very active in our son’s life.”

Montag, 30, added that she wants to be “the ultimate mom” to their first child and make sure he knows how loved he is.

While Montag says Pratt, 33, is looking forward to playing sports and doing activities with their little boy, he was actually hoping for a mini-me of his wife.

“I thought he’d be more excited to have the boy,” the reality star explained. “He said, ‘But I did want a little Heidi.’ ”

Montag, however, suspected she was having a boy – just what she wanted.

The entire crew of The Hills seems to have timed their pregnancies together, with Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port also in the moms-to-be club.While former cast mates Kristin Cavallari and Audrina Patridge, who both have children, have shared some on pregnancy tips, Montag said others have not been in contact.“Audrina reached out and Kristin [Cavallari] reached out and I stay in touch with them, so they were really excited for me,” Montag told E! News’ Daily Pop. “Obviously I didn’t hear from Lauren, but I wasn’t expecting to.”Asked whether she anticipates that the former MTV reality stars will ever rekindle their friendship, Montag honestly stated, “No, I don’t think so.”“I certainly wish the best for her and her life, and I’m thankful for that time period, but that friendship is long gone,” said Montag.
