(Photo credit: MTV)Heidi Montag and husband Spencer Pratt were photographed kissing after the reality star said he wanted to reconcile with his wife, his co-star on The Hills, who filed for divorce in July.

The two locked lips in Santa Barbara, California and reportedly celebrated Montag's 24th birthday on Wednesday with a date at the zoo and dinner on the Santa Barbara Pier, said People magazine, which ran the paparazzi photo that showed them kissing while wearing sunglasses and holding glasses with champagne.

The couple has not commented on the photo. The two married in 2009 and were often shown squabbling on The Hills. Montag and Pratt, who have broken up and gotten back together numerous times, on and off-camera, have often been said to have staged publicity stunts. They recently vacationed together in Costa Rica and were detained briefly at the airport for illegal arms possession after security officers found two handguns in their luggage.

Pratt, a 27-year-old Los Angeles socialite, had told MTV in August that he would be traveling to Costa Rica in hopes of reconciling with Montag. After the couple returned to the United States, Pratt, the self-proclaimed villain of The Hills, told the Associated Press that he and Montag were "soulmates," adding: "I don't see any reason we can't get back on track."

Montag filed for divorce from Pratt in July. He signed the papers on August 13 and their divorce is set to be finalized on Feb. 14, 2011 - Valentine's Day. Calling himself an "epic douche," Pratt publicly apologized to Montag last week for bad-mouthing her during their divorce proceedings and threatening to release a sex tape.

Pratt, who has also called himself a "famewhore," said that during the couple's brief stay in Costa Rica, he'd gone on a jungle retreat for self-improvement and to convince Montag he could give up his fixation with fame. His wife stayed at a nearby villa.

Montag also indicated earlier in the week she might have a change of heart about their legal separation, saying: "As far as I'm concerned the last thing in the world after everything we have just been through is to go through with this divorce. But we are just taking life second by second."
