She continued, ‘It’s funny because they say that when you’re pregnant you lose energy, have morning sickness, and things get a lot harder, but I’m so lucky because I feel 100% fine! I still get up early, go to Pilates, go to work and work all day, and feel amazing – my sister and mom asked about it and they were the same way, so maybe it runs in the family but definitely no signs of slowing down.
The mom ended the post by asking, “To all the pregnant ladies or mums out there: What is your experience??”
El Moussa and Young met during a fishing trip in July of 2019, and went to tie the knot at a party near Santa Barbara last October.
