Heather, who is due to give birth next year, said she was thrilled with the great news.

“I think when you least expect it and there’s no stress in your life, the world just brought us what it was meant to be. I’m so excited that it happened like this.

She started dating Tarek in 2019 and they got married in 2021.

He already has children Taylor, 11, and Bryden, 6, with ex-wife Christina Hall.

She was happy to be the “bonus mom” to her stepchildren and didn’t think they would try to have babies.

But she told People: “As your love grows and you fall more and more in love with someone and you build this life together, I started imagining having a child with Tarek. I started thinking that I just wanted to create something with the man I was in love with.

They are now filming the HGTV documentary series The Flipping El Moussas.

Tarek explained that he thought Heather was pregnant, so he asked her to take a test. She took two. “Both came up ‘undetected,'” she said. “I said, ‘Oh, I must have done it wrong.'” Tarek left for work and then things at home turned around.

Surprise:

She did another test. “I organized my clothes. I was just doing other things and probably about 20 minutes later I was like, “Oh, the pregnancy test.” I went and looked and it said I was totally pregnant. She squealed, startling her assistant, who burst into tears of happiness when Heather shared the news.

“I did two more tests. immediately, [they said] pregnant,” she says.

They will share the gender at a reveal party in a few weeks.

“Tarek thinks he’s a girl. I don’t know yet. I just want a happy, healthy baby,” says Heather. “We already have Tay and Bray, so I’ll be happy with both. But I secretly want a little mini Heather.

Now they want to find a new home. “We’re looking for a new house, and if we don’t find one when the baby comes, we have room for the baby in our current home,” says Tarek. “But we definitely need to find a bigger house with a yard and a little more space.”

Their road to the birth of a baby is long.

In January, she said she retrieved seven eggs from her egg retrieval procedure.

“Everything went smoothly, I was told 2 eggs got 7!!!!” Heather posted on her Instagram stories. “That doesn’t mean they’re all going to be healthy, but they hope so (praying hand emoji).”

She tagged her El Moussa in the post, which included a screenshot of the FaceTime conversation she had with him right after she woke up from the procedure.

Heather looked tired but happy as she looked tiredly at her husband.

The couple’s day started bright and early in preparation for the procedure.

“We were told 2 eggs, we have 7!” The newlyweds happily announced that they had retrieved more eggs than expected

In the video, taken at 6:44 a.m. that day, Heather and her husband were already on their way to the doctor’s office.

‘Good morning, the El Moussa family are tired!’ Heather said as she sat in a car with her husband.

“Today is a big day!” Tarek said.

“We’re doing egg retrieval, so we’re on our way to the doctor right now and we’re going to get two good, strong eggs! Are you ready baby? Heather said.

‘We are ready!’ Tarek exclaimed.

Heather documented her fertility journey on social media as she prepared to freeze her eggs.

Last week, Heather had “not-so-ideal news” to share with fans after learning that it looks like one of her five eggs won’t “mature enough to be retrieved or frozen”.

“I have two that are going strong, one that is still growing and one that is still growing, so I have four that are looking decent,” she said.

Hooray! The beauty was

The Netflix star said the low egg count was “not the best number” and noted that she plans to ask her doctor if they are worth retrieving to create embryos.

Heather wanted to avoid “doing another round” and said she was hoping for good news when she spoke to her medical professional.

Despite the news, she wrote that she is “trying to stay positive.”

Heather and Tarek said “I do” in October at the Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort and then jetted off to the Maldives and Dubai for a lavish honeymoon.

In November, the couple revealed their plans to start a family together.

“We’re going to freeze embryos first, go from there and see what happens,” Heather said during an appearance on Well! News Daily Pop.

While talking about their honeymoon, host Justin Sylvester said: “There’s nothing to do in the Maldives but drink…”

“Make a baby?” Heather interjected.

Tarek then said the newlyweds were “talking about babies” and “practicing having babies.”

The Flip Or Flop star already has daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, six, with ex-wife Christina Haack, 38.

Heather said: “I’m more open to it because our lives are already crazy.

“We are raising two children. I’m a mom now. So I’m like, well, why not just have one more?’

“Whatever she asked,” Tarek said. “Happy wife, happy life!”

Marital bliss! Heather and Tarek said
