The pair met in 2006 at a nightclub while Montag was filming The Hills, and it was love at first sight for the reality star. "I pretty much told everyone I was going to marry him and that I loved him. [Everyone] thought I was crazy," she told Vice in 2016. Pratt was then cast on the hit MTV series and their relationship played out on the screen for six seasons. The couple has had their fair share of struggles over the years, including a brief separation in 2010, but they have since welcomed a son and have another baby on the way. "When we started, it felt like everyone was trying to break us up, or they thought we were together to be famous," Pratt told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview in 2019. "But here we are, 10 years later. The [best] thing we ever did is be together." From their early beginnings on The Hills to walking down the aisle (twice) and having kids together, here's everything to know about Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's relationship. Early 2006: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt meet Montag and Pratt first locked eyes at the now-closed L.A. club Privilege, which was located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Pratt had been visiting the club with his friend Brody Jenner, looking for a way to get a role on The Hills. "I was like cartoon goo-goo eyes, heart falling out of my head," Montag recalled of their first meeting during an interview with Vice. Pratt had also fallen for Montag and he began to pursue her. Soon after, he joined Montag on The Hills and the two began crafting up dramatic plot lines to turn the attention away from protagonist Lauren Conrad and onto "Speidi," their self-dubbed couple name. "I was treating the show like a producer because I literally just made a show on Fox," Pratt explained to Vice. "I didn't know how to be on-camera talent." August 2007: Spencer Pratt gives Heidi Montag a promise ring Donato Sardella/WireImage MTV cameras caught Pratt "proposing" to Montag on the beach in Santa Barbara in August 2007. The footage, which aired during the third season of The Hills, sent fans into a frenzy — but it was later revealed that the ring was actually a promise ring. "… they kinda like jacked it from us and turned a promise ring scene into an engagement ring, and it kind of snowballed from there," Pratt told Cosmopolitan in 2016. "Technically, that was a promise ring." November 2008: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt elope in Mexico During a 2008 trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Montag and Pratt tied the knot. "I was just putting it out there, how easy it would be with no drama," Pratt shared with Us Weekly. "It was exactly the wedding I wanted." "I am surprised and not surprised at the same time," their Hills costar Audrina Patridge told PEOPLE. "They obviously adore each other and are very committed to one another. Heidi and Spencer seem like the types who would want a lavish wedding full of friends and family. I do think it's very romantic that they eloped." December 2008: Rumors circulate that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt faked their elopement When a clip from The Hills was released of Montag and Pratt getting married in a courthouse, fans speculated if the previous month's elopement was even real. While speaking to Ryan Seacrest in a segment that aired on KISS-FM's On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Pratt addressed the controversy and said of the legal documents, "We checked the confidentiality box, so good luck people [in finding out]." April 25, 2009: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt get married for a second time Montag and Pratt tied the knot (again) in an early evening ceremony at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, California on April 25, 2009.

March 10, 2010: Heidi Montag fires Spencer Pratt as her manager Robert Benson/WireImage Shortly after meeting in 2006, Montag hired Pratt as her manager. However, she fired him from the position in March 2010. "No longer is my husband the face of my business or managing my career," Montag told PEOPLE at the time. "I am going to have [Malibu-based psychic] Aiden Chase help manage my new life and career in a very different and positive way with light and love. The time for change is now. Never mix business and pleasure. We are no longer Speidi but Spencer and Heidi." June 8, 2010: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt file for separation In June 2010, Montag and Pratt filed for separation.

"The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out-of-court settlement. Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce." Pratt responded by telling PEOPLE: "I love Heidi but our marriage was a show — it was part of The Hills world." He continued, "And that world is on a sound stage." August 2010: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spend time together in Costa Rica Despite filing for divorce, the couple were spotted in Costa Rica in August.

"We were keeping up with the Joneses, but we were going against Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes," said Pratt. "We should have stayed in our reality TV lane." Montag said of her splurges, "I was kind of playing house. I felt like I was someone I wasn't. We had business managers who told us to stop spending but we acted like we knew what we were doing." Over the years, the couple had spent nearly their entire fortune on a luxury wardrobe, full staff, expensive dinners, and Pratt's crystal collection. "I was feeling so alone and defeated," she shared. "Everyone else on our cast had houses and we had nothing to show for what we'd done. I was like, the haters were right! It was sad." They eventually moved into Pratt's parents' vacation home in Santa Barbara to live rent-free, with Pratt telling PEOPLE, "We haven't been out to a fancy dinner since our anniversary. If Heidi's not cooking, we're eating tacos." "Life is so short," Montag added. "And what matters is being happy with family and marriage and with personal progress. We're in a really good place."
