After 2 weeks of waiting, Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa finally shared the first picture of their son’s face (much to the delight of the TV personalities’ fans!) as well as the sentimental significance behind his precious name: Tristan Jay El Moussa.
“Tarek was supposed to be named Tristan, and his parents ended up naming him Tarek,” Heather Rae told Us. “And then my dad’s middle name is Jay. So it’s four generations of the middle name Jay.”
In exclusive photos from Us, a sleepy Tristan snuggles with his parents in a navy blue hat, matching pants, and a white onesie that says, “New to the El Moussa crew.” How cute! The family then has an outfit change for a second round of pictures, and the comfy cozy newborn rocks a gray outfit.
Heather Rae told Us she had an emergency delivery when Tristan’s movements “decreased a little bit” in the days following her due date. After such a stressful delivery, we are so glad to see the TV personalities looking so happy and healthy during their photoshoot.
Tarek, who also has two children with ex Christina Hall: Taylor, 12, and Brayden, 7, said watching his son be born was “surreal” and “such a beautiful thing.” Heather Rae echoed that sentiment.
“Carrying him and then going through the labor … it’s just such a beautiful thing that the female body can do,” the first-time mama said.
The El Moussas are soaking in this precious time with their newborn, sharing sweet pics of skin-to-skin cuddles and little milestones.
“It’s love week and we’re definitely feeling it over here ❤️🥰👼🏻,” Heather Rae captioned an Instagram post from the day before Valentine’s Day. “Lots and lots of kissing, snuggling, skin on skin, and holding our lover boy… we can’t get enough 🤍.”
As they bask in the love, Heather Rae is not afraid to be real about the wide range of emotions that come with having an infant.
“Just mommy & daddy doing mommy and daddy things 🤍,” she captioned a photo from the day the couple took Tristan home. “We were filled with a million different emotions. So much excitement but also this overwhelming feeling of wanting to protect him and keep him safe. You always hear how special it is to bring life into this world but you never really know until the moment it happens to you —There’s a lot of learning and adjusting and it hasn’t been perfect but we’re loving every perfectly imperfect moment ❤️❤️❤️”
The couple announced Tristan’s birth in a joint Instagram post that featured their hands resting gently on the newborn.
“Our baby boy is here 🤍 1.31.23,” the couple said. “Mama & baby are happy, healthy, tired but doing well. Our hearts are so happy ❤️.”
“Welcome to the HGTV family little one!” the TV channel commented.
Now we are patiently awaiting a custom onesie with that same phrase for little Tristan’s next photoshoot.
These celebs have the fiercest pregnancy style, and we can’t stop staring.
