Heather Rae Young & Tarek El Moussa Hope To Conceive A Baby 'Within The Next Few Months' Before Trying Fertility Treatments
Heather Rae Young believes a baby could be in her future sometime soon.
While giving an update on her fertility journey with husband Tarek El Moussa — the Selling Sunset star told E! News that she is hoping to conceive a baby "within the next few months."
The 34-year-old explained to the outlet that she and her hubby are trying to have a baby "the natural way" first, before potentially having to turn to fertility treatments.
"If it happens within the next few months, we'd be very excited," the blonde bombshell stated. "And if it doesn't happen, then that's when we'll decide we want to implant one of the embryos."
As OK! reported, Young previously revealed that she was going to freeze her embryos once she and El Moussa became excited about the prospect of having children. However, the process ended up being more difficult than she had first imagined.
Young explained to E! that only two eggs were growing from her first round, which was "a tough day" for her. "Because when you put your body through the shots and the emotions and the hormones and just the process, you hope to get more than that."
"I just feel like women feel alone out there when they're dealing with fertility," she added, while noting that her hunky husband has made the process a little bit easier for her.
"He's just been such an incredible husband through everything," she said of El Moussa — who she wed in October 2021. She also recalled her most recent funk, where she was unable to do anything but lay in bed and watch movies because of the discouraging news from the doctor. "He just sat me down and said, 'Honey, it's not you. This is the hormones. And your body is processing through everything. Just know that this is not you,'" she stated.
"And his words and encouragement and love and just a hug makes everything better for me," the realtor added.
Fortunately, Young eventually got some good news regarding the fertility process after learning that her second round of insemination had yielded five viable embryos.
"It's exciting!" she gushed to the outlet. "I'm calling them my little babies—my little El Moussas."
Young is already a step-mom to El Moussa's two children: Taylor, 11 and Brayden, 6, whom he shares with ex wife Christina Haack.
