Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae El Moussa's journey to have a baby has been difficult. But luckily, his kids are there to make the process a little easier.

In an interview with Us Weekly posted May 4, the Selling Sunset star said that having Tarek and his kids Taylor, 11, and Brayden, 6, "for moral support was everything."

"There's a lot of ups and downs and it's emotional," Heather said, later noting how Tarek would comfort her on the days she "didn't even wanna get out of bed."

She also talked about the physical demands of IVF, citing the hormonal injections, blood tests and ultrasounds. "I'm lucky I have my husband and my kids there for the moral support," she said. "They'd sing with me and hold my hand and stand in the bathroom with me."

The 34-year-old said she and Tarek "wanted to involve them throughout the whole process just because we're very open with them and they're the most important things to us."

As Heather previously related, she and Tarek created four embryos, which are being tested for abnormalities. She told Us Weekly they plan to implant this summer.


Taylor and Brayden are excited. Tarek said, "I think they're both rooting for a boy. Brayden just wants a brother. Taylor just wants to be the only girl." The kids are already big siblings to little brother Hudson, 2, their mom Christina Haack Hall's son with ex-husband Ant Anstead.

As for Heather's relationship with his children, Tarek called her a "rock star" and said the kids "adore her."

"She takes the best care of them, like they're her own kids, seriously," he said. "Gets them ready for school, makes them their breakfast, she's on top of the homework, she's on top of school events, sports events. I don't think she could do much better as a mom than she is right now."
