"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. They're such incredible kids and I love them so much," she told People.
"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.
"I started thinking I just wanted to create something with the man that I'm in love with."
Tarek said he adores being a dad and at 40 years old, he's excited to have another baby.
"He's such a good dad," Heather said, adding, "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. And he's such a doting, amazing dad.
"I can't wait to see him with our baby."
How did they find out she was pregnant?
Tarek was in the middle of a Zoom call when he said he had a feeling and told Heather to take a pregnancy test.
After telling her to check, Tarek said he promptly forgot about it and left for a work meeting, meanwhile Heather sat at home with two pregnancy tests that had shown undetected results.
Thinking she did it wrong, Heather took another pregnancy test that came back positive. She was pregnant.
She screamed when she found out and went to take two other tests, both of which revealed the same results.
Thinking about how she would tell Tarek, Heather said she had to tell him "in a cute way," adding, "I can't just text him."
She put together a gift box for Tarek containing the three positive pregnancy tests and a baby onesie.
"I'm opening up this box and there are these sticks," Tarek told People.
