Heather Rae Young previously shared that she froze her eggs after marrying Tarek El Moussa

Heather Rae Young got candid about freezing her eggs with Life & Style in September 2021. “I froze my eggs once,” the Selling Sunset star shared. “I actually have low fertility. So, I did that because there’s a chance that I might not be able to have babies. I did that just for my future.”

She went on to say that she doesn’t regret not having kids, but she wants to keep her options open in the future. “I don’t have to feel like I regretted not having kids,” Young explained. “I just wanted to have the option. I’m probably going to do one more round just to be safe because I don’t have a lot of eggs, so I’m going to preserve what I have.”

Young also revealed that she had changed her mind about what she wanted in life. “When you find your soulmate, I think your mind changes, and how you think your future is going to end up changes,” she said. “Like, I never thought I would be a step-parent. I never thought I would marry a man that had kids and an ex. I never thought I would be in this position. So, from the moment I met him, I 100 percent committed. I never thought twice about it and our life is crazy and I’m like, ‘Well, what’s one more?’”
