Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young welcomes baby boy

Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young welcomes baby boy

The reality star and former Playboy playmate has welcomed her first child with her husband, Tarek.

Selling Sunsets’ Heather Rae Young has given birth to her first child, with her husband Tarek El Moussa announcing the news on social media.

Taking to Instagram, proud dad Tarek updated Young’s fans with a cute photograph on Instagram.

In the sweet snap, the couple hold his hands while he lies in the bassinet.

He also wrote a touching tribute to his son, which read: “Our baby boy is here. 1.31.23. Mama & baby are happy, healthy, tired but doing well. Our hearts are so happy.”

The little one's arrival is particularly poignant for Young, as she'd previously spoke about her struggle to conceive and received IVF treatment before becoming pregnant.

Young even shared her story on social media: “Our baby is a miracle baby - the odds were definitely against us but all that matters is that it happened… I just can't wait to hold her/him in my arms”

Since then, the former Playboy Playmate has been regular updates with her 3 million followers and even joked about being on ‘baby watch’ as she edged closer to her due date.

However, Young hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down just yet.


As well as co-parenting her husband’s two children, Taylor, 12, and Brayden, seven, from his previous marriage, the reality star has also been in talks to star in her own HGTV series.

Currently entitled, The Flipping El Moussas, the series will a Kardashian-esq fly on the wall show and follows the couple's high and lows as they sell properties.

Due to air in March, the spin-off will be the couple’s first solo TV series together after appearing on Selling Sunsets.

The couple originally met in 2019 aboard Tarek's boat and announced later that year that they were dating.

Having tied the knot in late 2021, they have continued to appear in the hit property series and hope to their own series will be just as successful.

They wrote in a press release: “We are so excited to bring viewers into our world to see the ins and outs of our day-to-day lives.”

But for now, the couple are focused on their growing family.

Speaking about the the birth of his son, Tarek told USWeekly: “Becoming a father for the third time is just as exciting as it was the first time. Our baby boy is doing amazing and Heather was a rockstar during labor

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tay and Bray as happy as they were when they met their little brother,”

“We are on cloud 9 and soaking in all of the snuggles and bonding with our little guy as an official family of 5. My heart has grown even bigger and I’m feeling like the luckiest guy on the planet.”.
