Heather Rae Young Reveals Tarek El Moussa’s Son Was Rushed to the Hospital
Heather talked about raising children at the ‘Selling Sunset’ reunion
Season 5 showed some of Heather and Tarek’s wedding and her bridal shower. At the reunion, she talked about his two kids, Taylor and Brayden, and going through IVF.
“I froze my eggs a couple years ago, and at that time, I wasn’t sure I wanted to have my own kids,” she said. “You know I’m raising two beautiful children. I’m obsessed with them. I’ve been in their lives now for almost three years, and it is very challenging being a mom and balancing life and balancing work and everything.”
But they decided to move forward with having a baby and creating embryos. They have four of them, and two are very strong embryos. The mother of Tarek’s kids is Christina Hall, who is now married to Joshua Hall.
Heather reveals Tarek’s son was rushed to the hospital
Heather shared a picture of Brayden lying in a hospital bed on Instagram on May 9. She wrote in the caption, “Today @therealtarekelmoussa and I were woken up to a call that as a parent & step parent you never want to wake up to. Christina & Josh rushed Bray to the hospital very early this AM.”
“Bray had to have an emergency appendectomy surgery & removal of his Meckles Diverticulum,” the post continued. “Scariest day of our life but we are so thankful it was caught early. The doctors and nurses at Mission Hospital were incredible & took the best care of him. Times like these we ban together as a family. It’s been a very emotional day but he is doing well and recovering.”
Some of her fellow cast members have wished him well in the comments. “Oh gosh so sorry to hear, grateful he’s ok! Sending healing prayers,” Davina Potratz commented.
“Lifting you and your family up in prayers my darling! Glad Bray is okay,” Chelsea Lazkani wrote.
How Heather and Tarek spent Mother’s Day
Before the surprising hospitalization, the married couple spent Mother’s Day without the kids. The Selling Sunset star shared a picture of white and yellow flowers on her Instagram Story with, “Aweee Flowers from my beautiful step kids celebrating an early Mother’s Day” on May 4.
She then wrote, “Unfortunately this year I don’t get to see them on Mother’s day, but so excited to kiss and love on them today.”
On Mother’s Day, she shared a video of her at a gala with Tarek. Someone was performing on stage while she danced with Tarek in the audience. “Best night with my best friend,” she wrote with a video of them dancing.
She also shared a post from a Selling Sunset fan account that showed Heather, Tarek, and his kids together. The post wished her Happy Mother’s Day and congratulated her on the four embryos. “Awww thank you! Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mamas out there,” she wrote.
