Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young spoke about who’s helping her name her baby boy as she walked the carpet at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards on December 6. She and her husband, HGTV star Tarek El Moussa, are expecting their first child together in early 2023, per Persons.
The reality TV stars are still weighing their options when it comes to finding the perfect nickname for their son.
“The name has not been set. We haven’t finalized the name yet, we don’t know fully,” said Young, 35 Us weekly. “We’re throwing ideas around, but I think we want to wait until he’s born and see what he looks like.”
This is Young’s first baby and El Moussa’s third. He shares two children – 12-year-old Taylor and 7-year-old Brayson – with ex-wife Christina Hall.
El Moussa’s older children are looking forward to another sibling – and they also help with the choice of names.
“They are so excited. Every week Brayden likes to check my app and see where we’re at, how big the baby is,” Young told Us Weekly. “They are really involved in the naming process. They’re just so excited.”
Echoing Young, El Moussa confirmed that his older children were excited for the new baby’s arrival. “I mean, Brayden followed the baby’s growth with Heather every week,” he told Us Weekly. “He talks to the baby and she rubs her tummy. Taylor too. Both kids are so excited.”
Viewers can catch Young’s baby shower on “Selling Sunset.”
Young and El Moussa fans who have been following the pregnancy on social media will also be able to see some of it on Selling Sunset.
“It was an all girls shower,” the star told Us Weekly. “[Tarek] but ended up coming and crashing which was exciting.”
Young teased that there was drama at the party as well.
“I was hanging out with my mom and my sister, but I saw there was a little bit of spitting at the next table,” she told Us Weekly. “You will find out.”
The El Moussas tried IVF to conceive
The couple were between in vitro fertilization treatments – and planning to transfer an embryo – when they discovered they were pregnant.
Young said they were shocked. “We just didn’t expect that. We just had IVF behind us. We had embryos on ice. We had a plan,” she told People in July.
“I think when you least expect it and there’s no stress in your life, the world has just given us what it should be,” Young continued to People. “I’m so excited that it happened like this.”
Again, the agent gushed about her stepchildren and how warm they had been to her during her pregnancy.
“You’re just so loving and caring,” the Netflix star told People. “They know I deal with the back issues and Taylor is always checking on me.”
Selling Sunset Season 6 is expected to return to Netflix in May 2023. The pair also landed an appearance on HGTV of their own entitled “Flipping El Moussas,” which is scheduled to air in March 2023.
