"'You always have time for the things you put first.' A quote that I live by," the Flip or Flop star wrote. He explained that while he is "constantly on the move and constantly working" he told himself that when he had kids, "They would come first, no matter what."

In September, the couple spoke with ET about the possibility of having more kids. While Heather admits that she never thought she'd be a mom, her perspective changed when she met Tarek and stepped in as a bonus mom to his kids. "Now I know I can do it," she explained. "And so, I'm like, 'Well, babe, what's one more?' You know, our life's already crazy and, you know, maybe."

Tarek had the perfect response to that: "There's one thing I know about children. I would never regret having a child because I love my babies so much, so if we have more kids, we have more kids."
