‘Selling Sunset’ star Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa recently announced that they are having their first baby together

On July 13, reality TV stars Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young shared matching Instagram posts revealing that they are expecting their first baby together. Young is already the stepmother to El Moussa’s two children, Taylor and Brayden, from his first marriage to Christina Hall

The Selling Sunset star has been open about her fertility journey and experience with IVF, but the couple said that the baby was conceived naturally. “It was a huge shock,” Young told People.  “We just weren’t expecting this. We had just gone through IVF. We had embryos on ice. We had a plan.”

But now that the shock has worn off, Young thinks the timing of her first baby was “meant to be.” “I think when you least expect it and there’s no stress in your life, the world just brought us what was meant to be,” she said. “I’m so excited that it happened like this.”

The couple announced the happy news by sharing photos from a beach maternity shoot. El Moussa’s two kids appeared in some of the pictures, wearing T-shirts that said, “BABY EL MOUSSA COMING JANUARY 2023.”
