"I mean, just raising a newborn and for me getting to just raise a newborn — I've raised Taylor and Brayden since they were 3 and 8, and just welcoming a new little soul into the world … "

Tarek noted that he has also agreed to let Heather shave his chest before the baby comes.

"I think it's important for fathers to have skin-to-skin with the baby as well," Heather explained. "So I did tell him yesterday, I will be shaving his chest and he will be having skin-to-skin quality time with the baby."
