Selling Sunset star Heather Rae El Moussa recently welcomed a baby boy with her husband Tarek El Moussa, and the couple have opened up about their fertility journey and Heather's road to becoming a biological mom.

Speaking on The Jennifer Hudson Show, Tarek explained: "We went through the IVF process because we didn't think Heather could get pregnant. We went through the entire thing, doctors and shots, everything."

Adding that they went through the process twice, Tarek shared: "And then she got pregnant naturally and I thought she was showing a Covid test. It was a pregnancy test."

Heather then added: "I am happy. It's like a dream come true."

Tarek has two children with his ex-wife Christina Hall, 7-year-old son Brayden James and 12 -year-old daughter Taylor Reese.

"I did not think I was going to be successful at having a baby. And I have two beautiful step kids and they're incredible and they made me want to have babies," Heather said. "It's like an obsession I never knew could happen, and the female body is the most incredible thing going through this.

"I have such an appreciation for women and what we go through, and it's such a beautiful thing."

Heather added that the couple still have some embryos from their IVF process, saying they "might have another baby" one day.

Heather recently shared how they decided on the name for their little one.

"Tristan Jay El Moussa," she said. "Tarek was supposed to be named Tristan, and his parents ended up naming him Tarek. And then my dad's middle name is Jay. So it's four generations of the middle name Jay."

Tarek added how his kids had reacted to their little brother's arrival, saying: "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 nine and soaking in all of the snuggles and bonding with our little guy as an official family of five. My heart has grown even bigger and I’m feeling like the luckiest guy on the planet."

Selling Sunset season 6 will premiere on Netflix on May 19.
