Heather Rae Young is basking in the joy of anticipated motherhood!
The reality star seems to be having a pretty cherishable pregnancy journey, and she could not help but give the world an exciting first-time update about her unborn baby. In a new Instagram Story post, the soon-to-be mama surprised fans with the fantastic news, naturally expressing how ecstatic she felt.
Heather Rae Young Says She Felt Her Baby Move For The First Time!
The stunning realtor posted a picture from her birthday a few days ago, featuring herself and husband Tarek El Moussa with their arms around each other. The amazing couple appeared to be in front of a wine cellar with different sizes and shapes of wine glasses also in the background. The caption that was across the photo read:
“Very excited [laughing emoji] yesterday we felt our baby moving for the first time & it wasn’t once. It was ALL day long.”
The “Selling Sunset” star then promised to share “an update later this week on pregnancy & baby El Moussa” and, of course, tagged her husband on the post. This first-time update comes weeks after she shared valuable tips on Instagram that have eased her pregnancy journey.
The Blast reported that while she no doubt loved every moment of having a “growing belly,” she also experienced a few challenges. She listed one of the tips: “Daily movement has been so important and almost necessary for me. It helps me feel “normal” even if I do a quick little 20-30 minute workout. Movement makes me feel better, always.”
Heather further shared the benefits of “peppermint oil” during her pregnancy as it helps with her headaches and relaxation. She also stated that nutritious food has greatly assisted, particularly fresh vegetables, proteins, fats, and healthy grains that fuel her and her growing baby. The 35-year-old realtor added:
“And other products that have been working for me are: my vegan protein powder from @tru_supplements (pregnancy safe), bump gloss, and bump oils/balms with natural ingredients.”
Another helpful item was her “ice roller,” which she admitted had eased her “really bad pregnancy rosacea.” Afterward, she posed a question to mothers and fellow pregnant women about what worked for them amid their pregnancy journey.
Not only did Heather share the valuable guidelines, but she also showed off her pregnancy glow via the post, with a video of her fashionably dressed in a cheetah print high-waisted trousers and a sleeveless turtleneck blouse. Her blonde hair was tied atop her head, with the locks flowing around her shoulders. She also paired her ensemble with chunky black boots, a few bracelets, and a tassel bag.
Speaking of the challenges the former Playboy Playmate of the Month faced amid her pregnancy, it was reported that she had some shocking “red blotches and bumps” on her face not long ago.
She also had an altered hormonal balance as she spent most of her days breaking into tears for no reason. Due to the issues, Heather planned at the time to get a facial and consult a doctor about her thyroid being “slow.” Besides, she needed to be assured everything was okay.
Before the surprising experience, she was advised not to travel with her partner to Cabo, and she naturally missed him and felt lonely throughout the vacation. The pregnant celeb revealed at the time that the period was the longest they had been apart, which had likely triggered a minor “separation anxiety.”
The Californian Beauty Discloses Her Happy To-Do List
Even with her pregnancy, Heather may have a busy schedule, but she makes time to be with family and friends, including them in her “happy to-do list.” The Blast detailed that her “happy to-do list” comprised the things that made her “happiest” these days, and she shared them on Instagram alongside several adorable pictures.
The first on her list was “shoot days,” followed by “spending quality time” with her mother, Teresa Young. She also mentioned her love for hanging out with her spouse and his kids, Taylor and Brayden. Next on the list was enjoying her workout sessions with Tarek, and afterward, she wrote how much she enjoyed taking her bestie, Kristen, to work.
In conclusion, the reality star mentioned her love for having private yoga sessions with “@skyler.yoga,” and she showed fans a session in one of the pictures she posted, featuring herself and her pregnant instructor.
