It’s a boy!

Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young has revealed that she’s having a baby boy with her partner Tarek El Moussa.

The realtor announced her pregnancy earlier this month but had a gender reveal party for the baby over the weekend.

Capturing the moment with a sweet video, Heather told her Instagram followers that she’s expecting a baby boy.

In it, we see Heather, Tarek, and Tarek’s children Taylor and Brayden release party poppers full of blue confetti.

Captioning the video, Heather wrote: “Baby boy El Moussa”.

The star was met with messages of congratulations from some of her Selling Sunset cast-mates.

Jason Oppenheim wrote “Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! A BOY!!!” while Maya Vander left a series of heart emojis.

Last week, Heather announced that she was pregnant with her first child through a series of beach photos on Instagram.

“Surprise!!!” she wrote in the caption. “Baby El Moussa coming early 2023!!”

Heather and Tarek first got together in 2019, and they subsequently tied the knot at a ceremony last Autumn. Tarek is already the father to two children, 11-year-old Taylor and 6-year-old Brayden from his previous relationship to Christina Hall.

Speaking to People Magazine about her pregnancy, Heather spoke about the challenges she’s faced in her fertility journey to date.

“It was a huge shock,” she said. “We just weren’t expecting this. We had just gone through IVF. We had embryos on ice. We had a plan.”

She continued: “I think when you least expect it and there’s no stress in your life, the world just brought us what was meant to be. I’m so excited that it happened like this.”

Heather also talked about her close relationship with Tarek’s two children, and described herself as their “bonus mom”.

Tarek meanwhile said that as he is “obsessed” with his children, having another is “just the icing on the cake”.
