The couple shared the news in an interview with People magazine published earlier today.

“It was a huge shock,” Heather told the outlet.

“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 and Tarek got married in October of 2021, and they say they initially planned not to have children together.

But now, their news is made all the more joyous by how unexpected it is!

“When we first started dating three years ago, we went into our relationship not planning on having children together. I really love being a bonus mom to Taylor and Brayden,” Heather told People.

“They’re such incredible kids and I love them so much.

“But as your love grows more and more and you fall deeper in love with someone and you build this life together, I started picturing myself having a child with Tarek,” the Selling Sunset star added.

“I started thinking I just wanted to create something with the man that I’m in love with.”

“I’m just obsessed with my kids. They’re my everything, so having another one is just icing on the cake. I’m so excited,” said Tarek.

“He’s such a good dad. That was another reason why I wanted to create something with him. Seeing him with Taylor and Braden, he’s just so obsessed with them,” Heather chimed in.

“And he’s such a doting, amazing dad. I can’t wait to see him with our baby.”

Recalling the day that they learned the big news, Tarek says he was seized by a premonition.

“I just had this weird feeling, and I was like, she needs to take a pregnancy test right away,” he said.

Heather says she took the test, but then quickly forgot about it.

“I was organizing my clothes,” Heather recalled.

“I was just doing other things, and probably like 20 minutes later I was like, ‘Oh, the pregnancy test.’ I went and looked and it said full-on pregnant.”

Heather went on to say that the timing of her first pregnancy couldn’t be better.

“My sister is pregnant with her third baby,” she revealed.

“It was my parents’ dream that we were pregnant at the same time. I never thought that would happen and the fact that it happened on its own just makes this so special for our family.”

Not surprisingly, the number one concern on Tarek and Heather’s minds these days … is buying a bigger house!

“We are looking for a new house and if we don’t find that house when the baby comes, we do have room for the baby at our current home,” Tarek tells People.

“But we definitely need to find a bigger house with a yard and some more space.”

Our sincere congratulations go out to Tarek and Heather!
