During a recent appearance on E!’s Daily Pop, Young revealed that she and El Moussa are putting their baby plans on hold for now.
“I have a crazy, busy next few months coming up, and I don’t want to go into it being pregnant,” she said. “We’re gonna do it sometime this year, maybe in fall. So, that’s kind of my plan. I keep pushing it off.”
She added, “We were planning on implanting very soon, like very soon, and I am just not ready right now. I am balancing so much. I’ve been healing. I’ve been going through a lot with my health, and I want to feel really good before I do that.”
Young underwent vocal cord surgery in March 2022. She also dealt with a stress fracture in her foot in February.
“I’m already raising two kids, so I know I’m gonna be a good mom. But, carrying your own and going through that and the pregnancy, and I don’t know how my body’s going to react,” she explained. “And I am busy. Sometimes I blink and the day is over, and I don’t get enough done. I’m, like, ‘How am I gonna also take care of a newborn and be pregnant? What if I’m throwing up? What if I’m sick?’ I don’t have time for that right now, so I’m gonna push it off a little bit. But I’m excited.”
