Actress Heather Rae Young opened up this week about how happy she is being a “bonus mom” to her fiancée Tarek El Moussa‘s kids. The couple co-parent with Moussa’s ex, Christina Haack.
Heather Rae Young is content with her family as it is now.
In a conversation with E! Daily Pop, Heather Rae Young opened up about whether her and Moussa wanted to have any more kids. She explained, “We actually talked about this, because I’m turning 34 this year, which isn’t old obviously, but I already feel like I have two kids.”
She feels like his kids are hers too! Young and Haack have also proven to be very capable co-moms, even in a realm that can often inspire jealousy.
Young continued, “I’m raising Tarek’s babies, and we have them 50 percent of the time. I am such a good bonus mommy. I adore those kids. I raise them like they’re mine. I wouldn’t be able to do it any other way.”
The actress added that their home life also did not need the extra chaos an infant would bring. Young is too busy to be pregnant as “Right now, our household is freakin’ crazy. I’m filming TV shows, I’m raising kids, I’m building businesses, so right now, no.”
