  • Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young welcomed their son Tuesday
  • The couple shared the first photo of their child on Instagram
  • The new mom and newborn are "happy" and "healthy"

Heather Rae Young is officially a mom.

The "Selling Sunset" star, 35, and her husband Tarek El Moussa took to Instagram to announce the arrival of the newest addition to their family and share the first picture of their newborn.

According to the couple, their baby boy arrived Tuesday.

"Mama & baby are happy, healthy, tired but doing well. Our hearts are so happy," they added in the caption.

Fans and followers of Young and El Moussa congratulated the couple on the birth of their first child together.

"Welcome to the HGTV family little one!" the official Instagram account of HGTV commented on the post.

Young's "Selling Sunset" co-star Chrishell Stause wrote, "...sending SO much love your way!!!"

"HUGE congratulations, you guys!" Ant Anstead wrote, along with a red heart emoji. Anstead is the second ex-husband of El Moussa's ex-wife Christina Hall.

"Ahhh congrats, you two!!! Such a beautiful blessing! Cannot wait to meet him!" Gretchen Rossi wrote. "Hi, sweet boy!!!! So happy for you both, what a beautiful blessing," Ashley Marie Kelsey said.

The newborn is Young's first child. The "Flip or Flop" alum, 41, is already a dad to daughter Taylor, 12, and son Brayden, 7, whom he shares with Hall.

Days before she delivered her son, Young shared how she induced labor naturally.

"I am just leaving acupuncture. I did acupuncture to induce labor, and I'll tell you guys a couple [of] other things I've been doing," she said in an Instagram Story video on Jan. 27, Us Weekly reported. "[I've been eating] dates, [drinking] raspberry tea, I did pressure point massage. I'm going on a lot of walks, obviously some adult stuff, bouncing on exercise ball [and] acupuncture."

She added, "Like, when I do walks, I walk kind of, like, an up-down [on the curb] and walks on the sand as well."

Young announced her pregnancy in July 2022. She admitted at the time that it came as a big surprise as they were in the middle of in vitro fertilization treatments.

"It was a huge shock," she told People in July last year. "We just weren't expecting this. We had just gone through IVF. We had embryos on ice. We had a plan."

She added, "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."

In November 2022, Young admitted on the "Today" show's "The New Rules" series that she felt "always second" when co-parenting her stepchildren.

Young clarified that "no one ever made [her] feel that way." However, she felt that it was inevitable.

"I think when your significant other had such a long relationship with the previous spouse, and a lot of love, and it was very public divorce, you're coming into it, and you fall in love with each other, but you always kind of think of the ex," she explained.
