Heather Rae El Moussa can't believe her son is about to turn 1!

On Thursday, the Selling Sunset alum, 36, shared a few photos to her Instagram, taking a moment to reflect on her son Tristan's upcoming first birthday. Sharing a photo of herself pregnant and holding a tiny denim jacket that reads "El Moussa" on the back, as well as a photo of herself and her toddler, the proud mom wrote a tribute to her son in the caption.

"Pre & Post baby (swipe 🥹🤍) I can’t believe this month will mark 1 year with our bear in our lives and 1 year of being a mama. Looking at the first photo I was sooo excited for him to be here. Now I’m thinking…how am I about to have a toddler?!?" she wrote.

"It’s so surreal and so many people still ask me if I miss my baby bump and yes, I honestly loved being pregnant so I do miss the bump… but I love having him in my arms more 🫶🏻."
