Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young just got married but they are open to having a baby and soon!
“We don’t know what’s going to happen, but we’re open to it,” Heather, who is now going by her married name, Heather Rae El Moussa, shares. “And it would be a big decision. It’s not just something that I want to say, ‘Let’s just see if it happens.'”
The couple, who recently got married at a seaside wedding in Montecito, Calif. on Oct. 23, are discussing having a baby, after previously announcing they would not expand their family.
Young has helped raise Tarek’s two kids — daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6, whom he shares with his first wife, Christina Haack.
But, “to create something with him, that’s ours, together… I feel I would regret it if I didn’t,” Heather says. “So we’re open to it.”
“When we first met, I vividly remember this conversation we had,” Heather recalls. “It was about two weeks into our relationship… It was very early on. And I remember he showed up [to my apartment] and I could tell he was bothered by something.”
She admitted how Tarek sat her down and told her: “I don’t want to have more kids. I’m just in that place in my life.” In turn, she told him not to worry.
“I said, ‘Well, I don’t want kids, either.’ And I really was adamant that I didn’t want to have children,” Heather shares.
But that changed as her bond with Taylor and Brayden grew.
“Before, she was never around kids, and now she’s raising Taylor and Braydon with me,” Tarek explains. “And we have them [half the time] so she’s full-on ‘mom life,’ and she’s realizing she can do it. And she loves it.”
“I loved them from the beginning, but my love for them has grown so deep,” Heather agrees. “And it’s a love that you don’t know about until you have kids in your life. The things they say, they drive us nuts, but they’re so cute. And they’re so sweet and their hearts and I just… They’re pure.”
She adds, “I realize now why people want to have babies and then more babies because you see them grow up and you’re like, ‘No!'”
And while Tarek acknowledges his thoughts on his kids then, he admits the possibility of more kids excites him now.
“Listen, I’ve been on TV forever. If people have seen me with Taylor and with Brayden, [they know] I am obsessed with my kids. Just obsessed,” Tarek says. “I love being a dad. I love spending time with them. They are number one. I would never regret having more kids. I love my babies so much.”
