"So I am trying to get ahead of the game with all the baby stuff," Heather said in her Instagram Story. "I'm obsessed with elephants, so I want to do an elephant-themed, animal-themed, like a safari but with very neutral colors." Heather Rae El Moussa/Instagram Heather shared that she plans to keep with "taupes and grays," filling the nursery with calming colors regardless of the sex of the baby. "Once I know the gender, it'll be a lot easier," she said at the time, "but I'm thinking more neutrals for everything, just keep it very calming colors, calming in the baby's room."
