Tarek and Heather Rae El Moussa Reveal Gender of Their First Baby
Tarek and Heather Rae El Moussa have revealed the gender of their first baby together.
The couple, who got married in October 2021, posted a joint video on Instagram of their gender reveal and announced that they are expecting a baby boy.
Loved ones celebrated with them as they shot off cannons with blue confetti.
Heather Rae El Moussa, who is a realtor on the show “Selling Sunset,” shared in an Instagram post last week that she got pregnant naturally after doing In-vitro Fertilization treatments (IVF).
“If you know us, you know our journey has been far from ‘normal’ so of course our pregnancy story is the same. I’ve been really open about my pregnancy journey-we’ve been doing IVF and went from having 7 frozen eggs to being told we were only supposed to get 2 follicles to then being able to get 8 to… having an all natural pregnancy, you just never know what life has in store for you,” she wrote.
Continuing, she wrote, “You can plan and try to make things happen all you want but what’s meant to be will be so to me, our baby is a miracle baby – the odds were definitely against us but all that matters is that it happened… I just can’t wait to hold her/him in my arms.”

Heather Rae El Moussa revealed to ET that when she met HGTV star Tarek El Moussa, they both decided that they didn’t want children. Tarek is already a father to two children whom he shares with ex-wife Christina Hall.
“Originally when we first met, it was like I said, ‘No I don’t want any kids.’ He said, no more kids for him. So we were on the exact same page. Well, fast forward two-and-a-half years… you know,” she explained.
However, the journey to conceiving a baby did not come easy for the couple.
“It’s definitely been rough,” Heather Rae El Moussa said. “These last two-and-a-half weeks, poking myself every single day with needles, three times a day, the hormones, the emotions… At first we found out I only had two eggs. Which going through this whole process and only finding out I had two eggs, I was sad. I did cry a little bit and, you know, going into the extraction — we went to the extraction on Tuesday. I came out and I had seven eggs, so that was really exciting for us because we thought we only were gonna get two.”
The couple announced their pregnancy on Instagram in July with the caption, “Surprise!!! Baby El Moussa coming early 2023!!”
