Selling Sunset's Heather Rae Young (aka Heather El Moussa) has opened up about her feelings towards welcoming a baby with husband Tarek El Moussa – who already has two children from a previous relationship – telling fans she's "not ready" to be pregnant just yet.
Previously, the real estate agent turned reality TV star had taken fans along on her IVF journey, sharing details of the egg harvesting and retrieval process after revealing she'd changed her mind on becoming a mother. "Ever since I started sharing my fertility journey with you guys, Probably one of the #1 questions I get asked is 'What made you change your mind about having your own kids?'" she wrote in an Instagram post. "Well… my love for Taylor and Brayden [Tarek's children] is almost indescribable, it helped me realise that I am capable of being an incredible mom and that I can really do this."
But, most recently Heather told E! News that she and husband Tarek are pressing pause on expanding their family for the time being. "I have a crazy, busy next few months coming up, and I don't want to go into it being pregnant," she said. "We're gonna do it sometime this year, maybe in fall. So, that's kind of my plan. I keep pushing it off."
The couple, who embarked on their IVF journey earlier this year, confirmed that they have four embryos ready to go whenever they decide to use them – although they haven't confirmed when that will be.
"We were planning on implanting very soon, like very soon, and I am just not ready right now," the 34-year-old said. "I am balancing so much. I've been healing. I've been going through a lot with my health, and I want to feel really good before I do that."
The reality TV star went on that she isn't feeling too much pressure to get pregnant right away, given that she has such a good bond with Tarek's children. "I'm already raising two kids, so I know I'm gonna be a good mom. But, carrying your own and going through that and the pregnancy, and I don't know how my body's going to react," she added. "And I am busy. Sometimes I blink and the day is over, and I don't get enough done. I'm, like, 'How am I gonna also take care of a newborn and be pregnant? What if I'm throwing up? What if I'm sick?' I don't have time for that right now, so I'm gonna push it off a little bit. But I'm excited."
