Tarek and Christina El Moussa's Happy News: Thyroid Cancer Battle Over, They're Expecting Again!

After Battling Thyroid Cancer, HGTV's Tarek El Moussa Thrilled to Be Expecting a New Child with Wife Christina

Originally posted 04/06/2015 11:10AM

Nearly two years since Flip or Flop host Tarek El Moussa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in June 2013 and had to fight for his life, the HGTV star is now happily welcoming a new life – a baby boy – with his wife and co-host Christina.

Apart from the difficulty of dealing with a cancer diagnosis, the couple had been trying to conceive their second child for about a year.

"We found out Tarek had cancer, and we asked the doctor if that would affect our chances of having a child," Christina tells PEOPLE. "They said that if you go through radiation, which Tarek had too, then you should not get pregnant from that sperm from six months to a year. So, right away, we did sperm banking and [tried] IVF."

Conceiving wasn't an easy task. After two failed attempts at IVF – including one resulting in a miscarriage at eight weeks – Christina changed doctors and tried one last time to conceive.

"I had to be super strict," says Christina. "I had to do one full week in bed. For 13 weeks after that, I couldn't go for a walk and couldn't lift anything over a gallon of milk. We planned it during Christmas break so I wasn't working. We did everything we could to make sure this one worked."
