Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt

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.
Montag, 22, and Pratt, 25, have chronicled their off-again, on-again (for good this time!) romance on The Hills
– including a season cliffhanger about whether or not they were really engaged
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.
By starting a relationship with the slick Pratt, Heidi Montag ultimately set off the well-known feud
with former BFF Lauren Conrad
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.)
