Tarek explained he felt Heather was pregnant so he asked her to take a test. She took two. ‘Both came out ‘undetected,’ she said. ‘I said, “Oh, I must have done it wrong.”‘

She took one more test. ‘I was organizing my clothes. I was just doing other things, and probably like 20 minutes later I was like, “Oh, the pregnancy test.” I went and looked and it said full-on pregnant.’ 

Heather screamed with joy. 

‘I took two more tests. Right away, [they said] pregnant,’ she told the site.

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

‘Tarek thinks it’s a girl. I don’t know yet. I just want a happy, healthy baby,’ said Heather. ‘We already have Tay and Bray, so I’d be happy with either. But I secretly want a little mini Heather.’

Now they want to find a new home. ‘We are looking for a new house and if we don’t find that house when the baby comes, we do have room for the baby at our current home,’ said Tarek. ‘But we definitely need to find a bigger house with a yard and some more space.’

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

Their journey to have a baby together has been long. 

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

She tagged her El Moussa in the post, which included a screenshot from the FaceTime call she had with him immediately after waking up from the procedure.

Heather looked tired but happy as she gazed wearily towards her husband.

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

‘Big day today!’ Tarek said.

‘We’re doing egg retrieval, so we’re on our way to the doctor right now and we’re gonna get two good strong eggs! Ready babe?’ Heather said.

Heather has been documenting her fertility journey on social media as she prepares to freeze her eggs.

Earlier, Heather had ‘not ideal news’ to share with fans after learning it appeared as though one of her five eggs was not going to ‘mature enough to extract or freeze’. 

‘I have two that are strong, one that’s still growing, and another one that’s still growing so I have four that are looking decent,’ she said.

The Netflix star said the low count of eggs is ‘not the best number’ and noted that she planned to ask her doctor if they’re worth extracting to create embryos.

Heather wanted to avoid ‘doing another round’ and said she was hoping for some good news when she speaks with her medical professional.

Despite the news, she wrote she was ‘trying to stay positive.’

Heather and Tarek said ‘I do’ in October at the Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort, and then traveled 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 then see what happens,’ Heather said during an appearance on E! News Daily Pop.

While talking about their honeymoon, host Justin Sylvester said, ‘There’s nothing to do in the Maldives except drink–’

‘Make a baby?’ Heather interjected.

Tarek then went on to say that newlyweds were ‘having talks about having babies’ and were ‘practicing having babies.’

Heather said, ‘I’m more open to it because our life is already crazy.

‘We’re raising two kids. I’m already a mommy. So I’m like, well, why not have just one more?’

‘Whatever she wants,’ Tarek said. ‘Happy wife, happy life!’
