9 Reasons Why Heather Rae El Moussa Will Be an Amazing Mom
HGTV host Tarek El Moussa and his wife Heather Rae El Moussa welcomed their baby boy on January 31, 2023. Here's how we know Heather is going to be an awesome mom to Baby El Moussa.
Beware of the baby bump! After The Big I Do that took place between HGTV host Tarek El Moussa and his wife Heather Rae El Moussa, the pair are ecstatic to announce they've welcomed a baby boy on January 31, 2023.
Heather first revealed her pregnancy on July 14 in an Instagram post, using the cute nickname "Baby El Moussa." A week later, Heather and Tarek threw a gender reveal party and were overjoyed to find out they'll be having a baby boy — or as Heather says — "Baby Tarek."
Ahead, we outline all the reasons why Heather will be a great mom.
She Knows What it Takes to Succeed
Heather grew up in the small town of San Bernardino, California. There she worked two jobs, seven days a week. Big aspirations coupled with an awesome work ethic led her to eventually sell luxury real estate for The Oppenheim Group, a top agency in Southern California. As a self-made woman, Heather is bound to be good at showing baby El Moussa how to be successful.
She's Already a Wonderful “Bonus Mom”

The homeowners, a young family, knew what they wanted out of their new home on lakefront property: They dreamed of it being a celebration of their love of the water and the color blue, relayed via clean, simple and modern design.

Selling Sunset fans know how much Heather enjoys spending time with Tarek’s kids, Taylor and Brayden. Her Instagram is practically a Tay and Bray fanpage, and she often posts family photos gushing about how much she loves them.
She's a Health and Fitness Addict
In fact, Heather was once a former pilates instructor. She's also vegan. So, we're guessing she'll be making baby El Moussa some nutritious bites. Maybe he'll even get to join in on some mommy-baby stretching exercises.
She's Also a Dog Mom
Couple With Puppy
The owners wanted their lakefront home to be a spot where they could relax with family and friends.

She got her rescue pooch, Harley, from a non-profit organization in South Korea, and calls him her little sidekick. Fun fact: Heather and Tarek also surprised the kids with a puppy named Bugz last year.
She's a Fashionista
As seen in Selling Sunset and on Instagram, Heather loves fashion. She also enjoys shopping (and even recently posted a photo of her and Tay enjoying some bonding time). We’re sure baby El Moussa will have an abundance of toys to play with and the cutest clothes to wear.
Baby El Moussa Will Have the Best Support System
Heather and the other agents at The Oppenheim Group love chatting about motherhood, parenting and how to balance it all while selling million-dollar properties. If Heather ever needs advice, she’ll be in good hands.
She's an Avid Traveler
They've gone to the Maldives, Dubai and, most recently, Greece. It's clear Heather and Tarek love to make lasting memories abroad, so there's no doubt Baby El Moussa will be traveling on international waters someday. (Obviously, we’re jealous.)
She's Already Designed the Perfect Nursery
Heather didn't waste any time planning for her nursery. In an Instagram video she put up on January 3, Heather revealed her son's super-chic, black-and-white nursery. She even included all the details on how she furnished it.
She Can't Stop Posting About Her Baby
5 Sweet Things That Stand Out From Tarek and Heather's Relationship
They always keep it real.
Heather's been transparent about her pregnancy journey, sharing the IVF and egg freezing process on her Instagram page, which makes the news of her all-natural pregnancy even more exciting. "You just never know what life has in store for you," she wrote in an Instagram post. "You can plan and try to make things happen all you want, but what’s meant to be will be, so to me, our baby is a miracle baby. The odds were definitely against us, but all that matters is that it happened."
