Home sweet home! Tarek El MoussaHis trip to Mexico was over, and he returned home with his pregnant wife. Heather Rae El Moussa (née Young) couldn’t be more excited to have her husband back under the same roof.
“Finally reunited!!!” the Selling SunsetStar, 34, wrote via Instagram Story on Thursday August 4, along with a picture of the Flip or Flop40-year-old alum presses his cheek against her baby bump. “Kissing and loving on his baby boy 💙 @therealtarekelmoussa I missed you so much.”
The couple’s reunion comes one day after the Netflix personality revealed just how much she missed her partner while he was on vacation with his children: Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, whom he shares with ex-wife Christina Hall (née Haack). Heather, who announced her baby last month, opted to skip the trip on the advice of her doctor.
“Missing my best friend while he’s away in Cabo with the kids and our families so I’m going through photos that I love of us,” she captioned a series of Instagram pictures of her and Tarek. “This is the longest we’ve been apart since we’ve been together so I’m maybeee getting a little separation anxiety 😆 .”
The realtor’s rep told Us Weekly on Tuesday, August 2, that Heather opted to not go on the getaway due to “an abundance of caution from her doctor, in order to avoid possible risks such as the Zika virus and food poisoning.”
While Tarek and his family were “having a blast” on their vacation together, as he shared via Instagram on Monday, August 1, Heather’s absence was certainly felt.
“Just missing @heatherraeyoung like crazy but doctors orders come first!!” he added.
Heather shared the news that she was pregnant on July 13, and revealed that Tarek and her are expecting their first baby together after a long process with IVF.
“Surprise!!! Baby El Moussa due early 2023!” the real estate agent captioned the Instagram upload, which featured photos of the pair’s maternity photo shoot.
The next day, Heather shared a clip of the exact moment her husband found out she’s pregnant.
Tarek was stunned when he found a positive pregnancy result in a box. “Are you pregnant?” he asked his wife, who confirmed the news. “Holy s—t!” he yelled in excitement.
Heather has previously shared the following: Use in November 2021 that “having Tarek and Taylor and Brayden there for moral support [during her IVF journey] was everything,” revealing that “they’d sing with me and hold my hand and stand in the bathroom with me.”
It’s no surprise that the kids are just as supportive — and thrilled — now that their new sibling is coming.
“Bray comes up to me every day we have the kids and says ‘how big is your baby today.’ And he’ll put his ear to my belly and say ‘I can hear the baby 🥺 ,’” Heather shared via Instagram last month. “My heart!!!!”
